I find Redox the hardest to be honest, still haven’t gotten my head around it 😅 the easiest is probably groups 2 + 7 since it’s basically just memorising and explaining the how and why.

I mainly struggle in trying to figure out what’s getting oxidised, reduced, what is the reducing/oxidising agent, balance redox equations using oxidation numbers. Just everything about it!

I don’t know, I feel like I’m the only person who finds redox so confusing 😅

I do Edexcel btw.
