    I'm in year 12 and I am only predicted a B at A-level, I haven't had perfect scores in my tests, but I think it would be interesting. Would you suggest it for someone who isn't incredibly gifted at chemistry just for the experience or will it just be demoralising when I can't answer the questions?

    I mean what have you got to lose? It's meant to be at a University level standard so even if you do bad don't be too downhearted!

    You're probably right, just don't want to feel I've wasted my time.

    Any practice you do do will obviously be harder than the actual A-Level content itself so it will make doing simpler/easier A-Level questions much more manageable and understandable if your doing harder ones!

    Yeah, that makes sense. I'll probably go for it, thanks!

    I'm a year 11 but I'm writing the Chemistry Olympiad too. How am I meant to go about learning for this?
