    What are the topics within those two subjects that you believe I start touching up a bit and making sure my knowledge is well consolidated before commencing sixth form?
    Thanks in advance,

    I did Chem B Salters.... damn I didn't like it xD
    Anyway, I don't think it's necessary to do anything special for it during summer.
    If you insist though, it might be worth looking at the EL module, there's not that much context to it I think and it just contains fundamentals you will need for the whole A Level. Molecule shapes, types of bonding, electron configurations and such.

    My whole class didn't like it.
    Well it's not that bad, I just feel like it would've been better if we did the A spec or another board.
    You can definitely get an A with some work, but an A* is more uncertain. It's hard to be certain about any A*s aside from Maths I think. What are the chances you will need an A* in Chemistry anyway?

    It's nothing to be specially concerned about
