    Hi guys i am currently doing AS chemistry and i find it extremely difficult to revise and focus for it i am also a private candidate which makes it extremely difficult for me and my parents have paid a lot of money for me to sit the exam at the end of the year, i really want to pass chemistry and atleast pull off a C or B grade this year because i feel like i always dissapoint my parents and the worst feeling ever is seeing my mum upset , can someone please give me tips on learning and exam practice as my exam is on 27th of may and 10th of june, by the way i do the new ocr spec.


    If in doubt, Look, Cover, Write, Check. This is PERFECT for revising definitions and facts.
    Do past papers that aren't on your spec. Find practice papers. Buy a revision guide and do all the questions in there.
    Practice. Practice. Practice. I can't stress it enough.
