Hi there!
I used to take A level chemistry (OCR). I just quickly searched online and found the following website you may find useful:
https://chemrevise.org/ocr-revision-guides/
http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...a-level-ocr-a/
http://www.knockhardy.org.uk/sci.htm

What I found useful during my A levels was searching on youtube anything I was unsure about. A good tip would be to not leave revision until the last minute, also making sure that I understood eveything as I went along. Also, practise a tonne of exam style questions, and past papers until you are gaining most, if not all, of the marks available. You could also search this website (thestudentroom), many students upload their revision notes.

To prepare for the chemisty practical exams, we were generally given a sentence which gave a background to the practical we were to complete. I prepared by revising all of the content/topics that were related to the sentence.

Good luck

Thank you those websites are really useful. What books did you purchase? There are so many books to buy on Amazon but I do not want to over spend. There’s an OCR module endorsed one but I am not sure if it is worth purchasing as I have the CGP and The oxford Cambridge text books
