Don’t worry! It may seem like everyone understands but I can assure you that there are lots of people in the same position as you! Try reading ahead of lessons if you know what you will be doing from the textbook and then go home, read it from the textbook again and try some questions to help you understand. With anything you still don’t understand, ask on here!

Hey Im doing Alevel chemistry as well. What I do is that before every lesson, I read the topics from the textbook and attempt the questions at the end of each topic. This really helps when I'm actually in lesson as it's just a recap for me. Dont waste time perfecting ur notes, just make good ones in class and add to them from ur textbook if u think they're not enough using the spec. Lastly, just go on PMT and download the topic specific worksheets they're so helpful. Honestly, practice is key! Good luck, u can do this!

Hey, I'm in Y13 but in Y12 I struggled so much with chem too. I was predicted a D at the beginning and now I'm an A*, it is doable. It definitely is a difficult subject but it's a 'practice makes perfect' type of subject so I agree with the others... PMT should be your best friend, chem guide is also very helpful, youtube videos....
I would suggest you to hang on a bit longer and don't lose motivation. Keep on putting in effort because it will pay off, it is such a beautiful subject as well and it opens up many doors for you in the future.
If you really don't enjoy it then drop it, you still have the possibility. But if you enjoy it and feel passionate about it believe me it will reflect on your grades in a couple of months.
Plus there are many students here who are happy to help you with any questions and struggles.
(Wait until you get to the organic part, that's when it becomes enjoyable to study.)
