    Chemistry is just understanding concepts, much like the other sciences except more for physics.

    When I was studying for my science IGCSE I studied each subject (biology, chemistry and physics) maybe 3 hours each every day, which was hard but if you don't think you have that much time, you could try tuition or asking a teacher.

    Try livescience.co.uk, it's amazing, I didn't use it for IGCSE but it is really great, cheap as well.

    Good luck in your studies!

    Firstly 1.5hrs is peanuts and not enough. Secondly, breathe, it’s your first AS exam, it happens. I got an F in AS Economics and got an A* by the end of 2 years comfortably. Getting used to the style of writing and exam technique will come and within two months, you’ll be laughing
    You can't get a F at a level

    I use physicsandmathstutors.com too the repetitive questions just helped remembering the info and how to apply it. If you have a kerboodle account you can get checklists for each topic to make sure you know everything needed
    I use this for chemistry and biology but do you know a site that's good for maths?

    It will definitely get easier as you progress through the course don't worry. Right now you are new to all the information being thrown at you but once you get used to seeing those questions on a daily basis your brain will automatically know how to tackle it. It's like learning to drive a car (though you may be too young to relate to this). At first driving a car seems impossible and changing gear seems like a huge task but after practice you do it without even thinking about it. Just keep putting the hours in and it will pay off trust me.

    I don’t actually do a level maths 😂 I do geography instead but I swear the website has good maths revision? I used mrbartonmaths.com at gcse and found it perfect, maybe that’d be good to use?
