Everybody can do Chemistry if they get it explained properly.

Have a look at my revision website: www.alevelchemistryrevision.co.uk for condensed revision notes (flashcards) and tips how to revise. Good luck!

That feeling of not knowing anything is the best motivator, if you are always striving to gain knowledge you’d be surprised how much you do know during and after an exam.

Good question! The AS-Level exams can be hell at the start, especially chemistry. The way I overcame my AS level chemistry is that I tried to practice on as many past papers as I could find on my spec. I may sound like your teacher saying “do past papers” they really aren’t lying. Chemistry finally hits you and everything comes together when you do past papers. If you want, you can personally text me and I’d be more than happy to provide as much help as you need, topic by topic even!!! Hope this helps!

Chemistry may seem hard, but when you put your mind to it, it all comes together with one click. Now what your looking for is that click in the different topics. I would recommend that you do LOADS of past papers from your specification, and also try physics and maths tutor for topic-by-topic past papers. Remember that practice makes perfect. Feel free to contact me for specific questions on chemistry if you need to and I’ll be happy to explain. Good luck! Hope this helps!!

G is a colourless crystalline solid which reacts with dilute nitric acid to give a colourless solution, H, and a colourless, odourless gas, I, which turns limewater milky. G has a lilac flame colour. Identify G, H and I (I’m aware that I is CO2)?

If you know that I is CO2, then you can probably already guess which anion it must have come from it in the reaction with the nitric acid.... All yo...

Hi Addie. I hope you are well. Since the 'gas I' can turn the limewater milky, it must be carbon dioxide gas, meaning the crystalline solid is a car...
