    If you don't mind me asking what grade did you get at GCSE? Also, how did you cope with? Tuition, used your textbook, revison videos?

    AT GCSE I got A's in additional and triple science and a B in core science. The only other skill required in chem is maths which I managed a A* in. A lot of it was just expanding on what you learnt at GCSE such as hydrocarbons/alcohols or equilibrium ans trends in the periodic table. My advice would be to use the text book provided by your school as it has more info than the CGP ones. Before my exams I made sure the read the entire textbook before attempting any past papers. The next piece of advice I would give is constantly do practise questions throughout the year and more importantly evaluate what you got right and wrong. Your notes are also useful for looking up small details but I mainly used the textbook. Overall just try to stay on top of things and you'll do fine . Hope this helps
