Hey! What i found the best was using revision guides where they ask questions after each topics. Also past papers are great! Theres a lot of similar questions in real exams as to past ones so defo use those!
I hope this helps!

try picking out the key info maybe by highlighting or using the specification and answering them as perhaps questions like what the exam board might ask u can use past paper questions to help u

There are a few great YoutTube channels. If you are doing A-Level Chemistry I highly recommend Allery Chemistry.

I NEVER revise by writing/ reading notes. It is entirely past-paper based learning If there is a topic I need help with, I may use a revision guide. Only facts that I find do not stick, I write on flashcards but I bin those after the test.

Lastly, something I only did in preparation for uni interviews, was teach my mum what I was learning. I found that I needed to explain everything in a structured manner, which made understanding a topic much easier as it has become more structured in my brain as well. I have ordered a whiteboard off Amazon recently so I can do this more (but not to mum, she would get bored and doesn’t have enough time😂).

I am doing chemistry physics maths and EPQ and can honestly say that chemistry is my most-enjoyed subject (applied to all unis to study pure chemistry). I am actually doing mocks at the moment and I find that with the spec and past papers and enough practice, chemistry is very doable. Unlike physics, I found that chemistry takes a small step up from GCSE (physics I found to take a LEAP).
If you enjoy chemistry now, you will enjoy it at A-Level!

Anytime and best of luck!

Edit: btw if you are passionate about it I am sure the school would let you do A level chemistry.
