    right okay thanks

    also do you have any tips for revising the calculations in chemistry apart from practice
    also (sorry) do you have any books that you used that you would recommend
    and lastly (again im so sorry) what career path would you like to go into if you dont mind me asking considering your AS results are so good

    For AS calculations make sure you understand the units of different things such as concentration, moles, density etc. These will help you to understand questions that are worded difficultly.

    A book that I have for AS and A2 calculations (although I barely used it this year) is https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/...SIN=0582411270

    Buy it used instead of new, it's much cheaper. It covers both AS and A2 calculation topics, and has different worked examples.
