Chemistry A-level in 2/3 monthsWatch
So I just did my A-levels (physics and maths only). Since i need 3 of them and i also plan on doing a gap year i wanna study a -level chemistry. Do you guys think i have any chance of studying a-level chemistry from absolute 0 (not even igcse level) in 3 months? I wanna take the exams in the winter session. Thanks !
That's quite a lot to learn so I believe that it cannot be done in just 1 year
Absolutely no chance in 3 months. Honestly, I do a level chem and got 4 A*s in the modules in GCSE, came out with an A* overall which was my best science. I know take bio and psych and I’m miles ahead in both compared to chem. According to AQA (excuse me if I’m wrong) but chemistry is the hardest a level that you can do, harder than maths and physics (I think these were the next 2). Everyone I know who does maths and physics agrees that chem is impossible compared. You’ll maybe manage it in a year but there is a hella lot of content. Aim for summer exams otherwise you’ll just be wasting your money and putting a huge amount of stress on your shoulders. It’s not worth it.
But no. you cannot study alevel chemistry in 3 months with no teacher. No chance. It takes time for the concepts to sink in for most people and even the most intelligent people would struggle probably.
Thanks and in regards to your situation, I would first break it down into organic and inorganic chemistry. I would recommend looking at organic chemistry first as it contains a lot of memorisation and reaction mechanisms, once you really learn and understand the core concepts then Inorganic (physical) chemistry should be relatively “easy” since it contains a lot of maths so If that’s your strongpoint then you’re good.
