    I think it costs about 5.60 extra for lateness of entry... Not certain.

    Erm, no it hasn't. I've just entered myself for a chem exam in Jan (OCR). Cost me £10.30 (late entry fee). Though, the fees will differ between exam boards...

    I'm going to sit the AS & A2 exams (chem)...have not started revising yet...
    Aaarrrghhh. I'm gonna use the Letts revision books. Erm, how's your revision going?
    Though I'm assuming that the 'Revise AS Chemistry for OCR' revision book is fairly good, because I've the same series for biology and it's pretty okay. However, I've heard the Heinneman ones are okay as well...

    Recommend any good revision tips for chem?

    Trust me when i say that 'Revise AS Chemistry' is the best revision book for OCR chem. When revising and doing past papers there wasnt one answer to a question that wasnt in there.

    lol do not rely on the "Revise Chemistry for OCR books "

    try to use as many sources as possible

    Hmmm, best order that soon then! Thanks for recommending it.
    That's my cue to get my ass off the net then...motivation does not exist in my world... : (
    That's another story altogether! Blah blah blah...

    if you are practicing past papers - DO practice them..... this doesnt mean as soon as you glance at a question you bottle it so you get the mark scheme to help you out.... it means trying to get somewhere on your own- even if you get no where near the answer - at least you tried and you are learning where you made the mistake, if you make the mistake that is.
