What you learn will depend on the exam board so I'd advise searching up your exam board's specification. Biggest tip I can give is PRACTICE QUESTIONS. With easier content, you have harder questions and vice versa. Knowing how to answer questions is really important not just knowing the content. My fave website for practice questions was physics and maths tutor!

Agree with my previous speaker. The content is the one thing, but to use it in the questions is another thing. Guess that 5hyl33n has another good tips for you to help.

Hi! :hi:

Good luck with Year 12!

I've just finished A-Level Chemistry myself, so hopefully, that puts me in a position to give advice. In A-Level Chemistry, the content is divided into three sections: Organic, Inorganic and Physical.

Content

Organic Chemistry
In Organic Chemistry, you will learn about mechanisms and their reactions, reactions in industry and reactions in everyday life.

Inorganic Chemistry
In Organic Chemistry, you will learn about trends in the periodic table, properties of elements, reactions of the elements etc.

Physical Chemistry
In Physical Chemistry, you will learn about how to find out atom economy, percentage yield, titrations, Maxwell Boltzmann distribution, mass spectrometer etc.

Tips for A-Level Chemistry
- Keep on top of your work.
- If you do not understand something, tell your teachers! Please, do not ignore it, as you will probably need the knowledge to understand the next concept.
- Use different resources to understand concepts. Some resources tend to explain things in not-so-clear ways and other resources sometimes have easier explanations.
- Test yourself with your knowledge through past-paper questions.
- Find the right revision technique that works for you as soon as possible. For me, flashcards and posters helped a lot. I wasn't very keen on mind maps and large chunks of text.
- Use the specification. This will tell you everything you need to know. If it's not on the specification, you do not need to know it.
- Regularly revise past topics. Do not tell yourself that you will revise it in a few weeks, because I assure you, from experience, that will not happen!
- Keep yourself organised. Make to-do lists of all the tasks you need to complete.
- Do not spend every minute of the day revising. Take breaks and eat/drink plenty.
- Lastly, enjoy! A-Level Chemistry is great and if you follow all the above tips, I'm sure you will find the A-Level much easier to handle.

If you give tell me which exam board you are with, I can offer more detailed advice.

Hope this helped and feel free to ask any more questions. Good luck!

My tip is to take note of everything in class. This works for any subject, but science specifically
