Same

I can remember so much before an exam. Just after an exam I forget everything.

So basically, synoptic will be a flop for moi.

have you got any synoptic papers to look through from pervisou years,

when i did it a few years ago a lot of the questions are very simular and just repeated and changed slightly. they are not THAT cruel with synoptic papers, its usually slightly easier areas of the course because it'd be too hard to expect someone to remember all the hard stuff for one exam.

i'd reccomend looking for things that haven't appeared in the most recent synoptic papers because that content is more likely to be in there, learn as many equations as you can.

one other little tip, the AS-stuff in there is mostly covered in A2 so its not too difficult and you'll probably be able to remember back to that kinda stuff when you did it back then.

but good luck with the exam

Chem synoptic is not as bad as say, Bio synoptic because the content overlaps - for example, the majority of Unit 2 apart from the industrial processes are covered in 4 and 5 (energetics, equilibria, kinetics, organic). The unit 3 content is a bit of a pain though, all those tests etc.

I also hate the fact that there is a choice in section B - I always take far too long to decide on which question to do, then spend the rest of the time thinking "I should've done the other question".
