1. Rates of reaction or structures and properties!
2. Reversible reactions (I can't get my head around the questions but I'm working on it) and Electrolysis (because we haven't finished it and it's a bit confusing)
3. Probably particles or metals
4. Chemical quantities
5. Yes whoops, I didn't really stop revision since my mocks but I did do less because of my French coursework but now it's back to speed. So I've basically been revising since like October :/ not sure if it's effective though, although I did get 6 A*s and 4 As in my mocks haha.

Favorite: Definitely organic chem. relatively straightforward
Least Favorite: I would say chromatography. Its a pain
Most Confident topic: Cracking
Least Confident topic: intermolecular and intramolecular. the difference stuns me lol
Revision: Started in december, took a break all of feb cuz i did well in the mocks (7A*s, 3As), now gotta get back to the books

Lol i'm one of those people who just have to read the textbook to study... flashcards and stuff have never helped. I do all the end of chapter questions and check the answers online- and past papers are my salvation! also examiners reports for the questions i find hard- rlly helps. Weird thing is i always have to have white noise or film scores in the background to study so i wont get distracted. let me know if any of this helps!

Hey! Good luck to everyone taking the exam we got this!
1.Favourite Topic
Probably dynamic equilibriums and organic chemistry although I used to hate it, everything is better when you finally understand them
2.Least Favourite Topic
Anything that has to do with colours and crystallisation
3.Most Confident Topic
Periodic table properties and predictions based on that and electrolysis
4.Least Confident Topic
Crystallisation methods and metals
5.Have You Started Revising Yet?
Revised everything once, now solving every past paper available since the dawn of civilisation to be honest

Hi everyone, I'm doing IGCSE chemistry, so scared. I've not had 2 years of notes like many people(still in year 9) and haven't learnt.

1. Displacement reactions.
2.Cation, Anion, Gas and Water tests.
3.Alkanes/Alkenes.
4. Addition Polymers
5. Water of crystallisation
6.Haber Process
7. Cracking.
8. Extraction of Metals.

I've been really ill for the past couple of months and only started revision last week.

Can someone explain them to me? Freaking out.

Check out the CGP revision guide for chemistry.
It's really helpful!
