How To Ace The Chemistry A Levels

How To Ace The Chemistry A Levels

How To Ace The Chemistry A Levels Maybe you’re already doing well in class tests and exams. But you want to do even better. You’d like to score that A consistently so you can just put A Level Chemistry away to focus on other subjects. Many guides talk about how to do better, or just how to pass, for weaker students. Well, this guide will show you just how to do your best – a solid A. For another guide (not from us) on how to ace Chemistry exams and tests in school, you can check out this guide by ExamTime called “How to Study Chemistry: The 5 Elements of Success” over here. 1. Show up to every single class. Yes, every single Chemistry class that the teacher holds. That includes enrichment classes or remedial classes that you’re not invited explicitly to. Ask your teacher “Can I attend?” Chances are that they will say yes to your request. In “extra” classes, teachers often give extra hints and sometimes outright answers to possible questions in their own internal school tests and exams. Sometimes, these “hints” are for those freakishly hard questions that no one can ever seem to solve in your class, not even you. I’ve seen them be worth about 10 points sometimes, in a 60 marks paper. Even better – if your teacher has access to the past years A Level papers and has been working as a teacher for a while, he likely can tell you what trends he’s spotted in past year papers, and what you should watch out for this year.

How To Study The Day Before A Levels

How To Study The Day Before A Levels

What To Do The Day Before A Levels So, it’s a day (or similarly close time constraint) just before the A Level Chemistry exam, or any Chemistry exam, really. So many people talk about surviving A Levels, but no one really talks about how to get through the stress of the day just before the Chemistry A Levels. Your friends are probably busy pulling all-nighters or busy stressing out over every little Chemistry bit they think they’ll need to remember. Is this a good idea? Read our guide and verdict on pulling all nighters! For additional reading, check out “The Expert-Approved Guide to Pulling an All-Nighter (If You Really Need To)”. Spoiler: We don’t recommend it, but like the article above linked says “If You Really Need To”. Here’s our guide on surviving the day before A Levels. 1.Don’t cram your day full of notes. It’s really tempting to bring that binder full of Chemistry notes everywhere you go – to meal time, by your bedside, and even in the shower! (I’m kidding on that last one.) Anyway, this isn’t a good idea, even if it’s the very last day before the Chemistry A Level. Constantly having Chemistry notes in front of your eyes 24/7 is a really quick way to get exhausted, stressed and grumpy, among other similarly negative emotions. While it may make sense on the surface to have notes everywhere you look “for a quick peep”, what it means is that you just can’t get away from Chemistry, not even for a short break. 2. Do easy questions to bolster your confidence. While it sounds really...

Our Top Tips For Studying For The Chemistry A Levels

Our Top Tips For Studying For The Chemistry A Levels So, the A Levels are coming soon, and no matter whatever subjects you’re taking for the exams, it is definitely a stressful time. If you’re taking A Level Chemistry this year in November (and the Chemistry practical in late October), you’re probably busy worrying over how to get good grades. So, here are our top tips for studying for the chemistry A levels from us at Bright Culture! If you’re looking for a more generalized bunch of tips on how to do well for the A Levels, you can check out “How I became a Straight-A Student By Following These 7 Rules” by Daniel Wong here. 1.Do as well as you can for the two exams before the actual Chemistry A Levels. If you do well for both exams, it will definitely give you a confidence boost and provide a “check” that you know the content tested for the Mid Year exam and will tell you what you need to work on and what you don’t. However, if you still don’t happen to do well for those two exams, it’s still worth it to try as hard as you can, as those are full exam papers and will help you get in the exam mood for the actual Chemistry A Level exam. For an added bonus, your Mid Year and Prelim papers can be done again as practice papers before the actual exam, as a harder version of what you will likely experience during the real thing. 2. Get help if you need it. If you haven’t done well...

How To Perform Well For A Levels Chemistry Exams

Hi everyone, I am Hendra Wong,  O and A Level Chemistry Tutor at Bright Culture. Some students and parents come to me and ask “Hey Hendra, why can’t I perform well for A Level Chemistry? I failed my promos badly and for some other tests, I couldn’t get more than 50%. Do I need a very bright mind or a very smart brain to perform well?No guys, it is not the only factor we need. There are two main things we need in order to be better. The first one, is a bright plan, and the second one, is an effective study culture. From the past many years, I have observed that some students don t have enough practice and thus cannot perform well for the exams. Now, we summarize the effective study culture into 3 things. 3 Things You Must Do So, these are the 3 things that every JC student should do in order to perform better. Step 1, when you start a new chapter in school ,you need to read and understand every single page from the school lecture notes. It s a bit too long sometimes, and honestly sometimes you will feel a bit bored, but no choice. We have to do that. Step 2, summarize the main point from every chapter. So, when you do revision, you just need to go to the main points. Simple and fast. In Step 3, the most important thing we need to do is sufficient practice. You need to complete all questions from your school tutorial, and after that try past year exam papers including prelim,promos and TYS...

Chemical Bonding For A Levels Chemistry

Hi everyone, I am Hendra Wong, A & O Level Chemistry Tutor at Bright Culture. Yesterday I ate cheese and bacon. Why cheese and bacon? Because Cheese starts with ?C ?, and Bacon starts with ?B ?. ?C ? and ?B ? sound like Chemical Bonding. This past few weeks, the J1 one students have been starting Chemical Bonding in school. They complain to me, wow, Hendra! Why are the notes so thick and scary? So different from Sec 3 ? But don’t worry. Sorry about the joke being a bit lame, now we continue. This very thick Chemical Bonding chapter, we can summarize in three different parts. Part one, the small stuff, like sigma and pi bond,are  those elements which can have more than 8 or less than 8 valence electrons dative bonding and dimer. Part two, those molecular shapes, when you start drawing the dot and cross diagram, after that, you identify the number of bond pairs and lone pairs of electrons and thus you know the molecular shape and the bond angle, right? That’s part two. Part three is about comparing and explaining the physical properties such as melting and boiling points, including those id-id,pd-pd and hydrogen bonding and so on. Part three: Comparison and explanation of physical properties of bonds. Today,for this short video, we do part three, about id-id, pd-pd and hydrogen (cut out chemical, it s supposed to be hydrogen) bonding. Okay, it s like this, if someone asked you, which has a higher melting and boiling point, NaCl, or HCl? How do we handle that question? Step 1: Identify whether these two...
