I need help with chemistry, I am sitting my first exam in it in 3 weeks and I feel as if I know nothing! It is my last exam so I do have a lot of time to study. Any type of advice on how to study chemistry would be greatly appreciated

Flashcards for definitions and exams questions really helped me

Learn all the definitions, maybe make like a list and learn them or use quizlet? Definitely do past papers and look at mark schemes to learn how to answer the questions with the least amount of words. If you're doing A-level/AS learn the mechanisms, conditions/catalysts for reactions and graphs (maxwell-boltzmann/enthalpy) for easy marks.

Do kahoots (made by teachers are better) to find out your weak areas- you’ll get less bored of revision with kahoots. Also, ask your teacher if you could stay behind at lunch or something to cover the required practicals so if you don’t understand them you might be able to redo them with your teacher or as a class in lesson. Revise in groups if you can and teach or test each other- this allows you to correct each other and develop your answers

• Do topical practise questions on the topics you struggle with the most. If you don't know which topics you struggle with, try doing topical multiple choice questions and the ones you got the least in is the one you need to practise on. Primrosekitten's website and Gojimo has good multiple choice questions.

• Since you don't have much time left to make flashcards, try using premade ones from Quizlet.

• Read summary notes on your topic, PhysicsandMathstutor.com has really good summary notes.

• Try the active recall method: After reading each summary note, try "blurting" out the information you can remember without looking at the note onto a piece of paper and then check which things you missed out and write them on the same piece of paper using a different coloured pen

• And most importantly, ASK YOUR TEACHERS FOR HELP.
