    Hi there to all chemists! I wanted to get a discussion about the A-level chemistry syllabus in terms of:
    • People's thoughts
    • Useful resources
    • Presenting topics of study that are proving difficult and finding solutions
    • General tips and tricks
    • Anything I've forgotten to mention

    Thanks and good luck!

    Anyone know what we're supposed to do with the advanced notice beyond just reading and annotating it?

    Hi there, My teacher said they would go through it with us in a few weeks in class so not too sure, however I think im also gonna link all main aspects of article with topics we've learnt.

    I think its also a good idea to make a sort of mind map of all the possible questions that could be asked about the article.

    If people are interested I wouldnt mind having a discussion some point on TSR about other peoples thoughts about the article, possible questions, linking topics etc.

    Good luck!

    That sucks, luckily our teacher is quite good. Mainly just going through past papers atm, i'm struggling quite a bit with memorising all the reactions and conditions but hopefully ill know them by the exam.

    Hey, I'm doing this exam! Has anyone got access to the specimen papers that aren't online? Teachers have access to them but my teacher won't give them me because he thinks specimen papers are useless :/

    Thanks in advance

    That sucks & I disagree any practice > no practice. Right now i dont have the 2 sets of specimen papers you refer to but I will hopefully be getting them soon. Idk if anyone else does have them (If so that would be very helpful) but if, when i get them, you still dont have them I can send u them if you want

    To expand on this, what advice have people been given with regards to the advance notice?

    Our teacher told us to just go through the article, identify all possible topics in it and practice these topics/make links. They also gave us a list of questions which covered these topics.
