My only A-level subject this year is chemistry and I'd love to score a high grade. I'm studying very well and following the specifications provided by the syllabus but my only problem is answering paper 4 questions. I know the answers but the way my answer is structured leads me to losing marks. How can I improve my answering skills in terms of structure and language and how can I achieve my goal of getting an A? Any helpful tips or tricks?

I do OCR B Salters so I can't be of much help in the specifics but I'd definitely say past papers are good to do and reading through the mark schemes when you've done them will help you learn the form they like you to answer in. Good luck!

Do lots of past papers. For questions that you get wrong, memorise the mark scheme, you'll soon see a pattern

For Flip sake, Don't tell me they bring those cursed questions: "You will be assessed on using good english"
They were an absoloute piss take at GCSE.

Testing how well candidates can clearly communicate their ideas is really important, which includes good grammar and sentence structure.
