Hi all

I’m getting frustrated with practice papers and topic tests. I know the chemistry for these but as I am maybe not writing the key word from the mark scene I’m not getting the marks.

I need an A* which I know is hard and my school does OCR B which is different. I know the equations etc but it’s getting the right words that are on the mark scheme.

I know it’s the same for all but it seems very harsh to lose a mark for using a different word.

If anyone has any tips on how to revise marks schemes other than do multiple practise papers I would love to hear.

Thanks

I'm sorry to say this but doing as many past papers as you can and learning/understanding the mark schemes are probably your best bet to get that A* as learning from books, videos, etc is definitely not as helpful as doing past papers to guarantee mark in your finals.
Rather make mistakes now and find the solutions to them, than make those mistakes in your exam
