Are chemistry GCSEs hard and what are they mostly about more about equations and working things out or remembering and facts and definitions?

I think it depends on the exam board you take on. I would suggest you find out ur exam board and then search up past papers and their mark schemes

a bit of both really, it's more about application of knowledge rather than regurgitating facts word by word but that's with every subject really, not just chemistry

I would say that they are a bit of a combination of both, though less facts and definitions. On the exam they'll be testing your knowledge and how you use it to answer particular questions. You will also be asked to work some things out and you will need to know how to do these particular questions (quantitive chemistry), though there is also a lot of remembering to do, especially when it comes to practicals. As far as I remember you are not asked about any definitions, but you will need to learn them in order to understand them in the context of a question.

I hope this helps, I'll be happy to answer any other questions
