I guess my main question is, how do people do well in such a difficult and demanding subject? I do biology, chemistry and maths, and to be honest, I thought the worst would be maths considering i transferred to the subject late, but surprisingly not? Chemistry is just so hard, Ive tried time and time again to do well, and ive revised and asked my teachers for help yet I have still done so bad on our end of topic tests. 14/50 is quite horrific.. I can say that I pretty much gave up mid exam which i know! not the best thing to do. Not to sound like a rant but theres so much I just cannot understand, such as back titrations and ionisation energies and all whatnot. It really just puts me down and makes me doubt if i will do well at all, considering that these are the easier topics no? But I have PPEs coming up that actually matter (less than 2 weeks to go!) and I just really want a minimum B. This is coming from somebody who needs atleast an A for my predicted as I want to do dentistry, so are there any chemists who could help a poor girl out?
How do people achieve A/A* in chem?
