    I am half way through my first year of doing A-Level Chemistry and I am finding it so hard. Like I have tried to understand it all but I feel like the exam questions are so much more difficult than the content we learn.
    Any support/ ideas to help or anyone who can relate?


    If it's the exam questions you're finding difficult, then the best way to improve is to do more of them. You'll find that past papers repeat themselves often so you get used to knowing what they want from you. If you still feel you don't understand some topics, it may be a good idea to get some 1-to-1 help from your teacher.

    P.s. When I say do more past papers, I mean both new (2017, specimens) and old spec papers - the majority of the older content is still relevant to the new specifications so don't disregard them.
