How to improve chemistry? GCSEWatch
What techniques do you use to revise for chemistry?
Blurting is a very good technique for some chemistry topics and I'll leave a link to how to do that here:
I did my mocks in december and got my results back last week: I got a 9 in chemistry so these tips seem to work for me
try them out and see which ones work best for you
hope this helps!
Best to find and do questions. Most of most specs is common - all specs will do molar calcs and energy changes etc. But don't do entire past papers from other specs, there will be differences - you shouldn't do every question. When you identify areas that you're no go at, do research, discuss with your friends, speak to your teacher (in that order).
Have a goal. Why do you want to get a grade 9? If you need a 9 for a reason, you're more likely to work for it. If you just want to 'do well', you won't work as well. When you want to prat about on TSR or instatok or whatever you kids use, then you'll think to yourself. I could check my snapface feed or I could keep working and go to medical college...
I typically find the CGP Textbooks really useful. However, that's how I learn. I average about a 9 in Chemistry mock exams so I find them really useful. Some people use free platforms like Seneca, which can be helpful, however, I prefer the good old-fashioned text book method. If you have some time, head down to Waterstones and have a look at some of there 'GCSE Chemistry Books' and find one that suits you the best.
Study regularly is another tip! This can be tricky if your addicted to games, and believe me I once was. And if you are, try unplugging your PC, everything, the power supply, your mouse, your keyboard and move your PC to the otherside of the house and try and do a little bit every day. It all adds up, trust me. Head over to the library for little to no distraction. You won't be able to find things to distract you there as your surrounded by the pure wisdom of books.
Finally ask your teacher, remember they're your friend. They want you to do well . If you don't like your chemistry teacher, then by all means, find another teacher in the science department and they might be able to help you.
Remember that practice DOES NOT make perfect.
Practice makes Progress.
Knowledge doesn't come by it's self, it's the doing which makes it knowledge.
