So my a level exams are in what 6 months, and I have slipped so much from A1 to A2 , my grades just keep decreasing and I’m trying my best to revise. Chemistry a level right now is actually killing me there’s so much content we need to know and even when I feel confident when it comes to the test I can never answer the questions. Just what can I do to help me get myself together in these next 6 months so I can hopefully get good grades

Hey! It sounds from this that you’re really in a rut...and that’s horrible. I studied my A-levels last year and they’re so demanding. I’m not completely qualified to recommend revision tips for the sciences (I’m arts and hums). However, past papers are seriously the way forward. Examiners can only ever ask you so many questions and the more you expose yourself, the better. I wish you every success. Please message me if you ever need a chat my friend.

Organic chemistry by any chance? to learn and to coin the most important facts and basics about organic, I began to repeat the lessons in my own words, after that I explained the connections of the facts for myself: I soliloquized in front of a mirror. When I got the self-confidence and a high understanding, I explained again, but in presence of people this time. That is by the way a good practice for oral exams!

Hi
I didn't do chemistry but I done biology and past papers really are the best thing to do. Also, if you learn from watching videos khan academy is really good maybe it will help you with the chemistry. I never studied in advance for my exams i crammed the night before lol but how i revised was basically doing past papers and any questions i could find. Also, i would read the chapter then take a blank page and write everything I know on that topic and then mark it, then all the topics/concepts i missed or didnt know i would write on a sticky note and put at the start of the chapter so i had a short list of what i need to focus on. Hopefully that makes sense. The blank page wasn't notes they were so messy i never read back on them but it was a good way to see what i did and didn't know.
Best of luck with everything
