Facing difficulties to score A* or a good grade in Chemistry? 

No worries, Mr Khing is going to share with you the 7 easy steps to help you score an outstanding grade in it. 

—— Proven with evidences ——-


1. Understand and master the basics
Unlike other subjects, memorizing isn’t work in Chemistry. In Chemistry, a chapter is interconnected to another. The first few chapters are comprised of the basics knowledges which will be required for the following chapters. It’s like building a skyscraper, you need to have a strong and rigid base before you can continue building it. Therefore, by understanding the basics, you can easily master the subject.

2. Simple and precise notes
Note is the vital tool in scoring Chemistry. Students often do not know which to focus, and an A* note is the best solution of it. A very good note will also help you to understand and master the subject easily, no doubt.

3. Study smart, study the right stuffs
Chemistry textbook is so thick that it can help you to cure insomnia. But, not every single words or information is useful and important. You have to be smart enough to study the important ones. Do not know which to focus? No worries, an A* note can help you to solve this.

4. Learn how the questions are asked
There’s a saying ‘If you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperilled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperilled in every single battle.’
Students often spend days or weeks to study, yet still not able to achieve the expected results. One of the main factors to this is that they aren’t sure what is the key points the questions are asking for. This can be solved by doing exercises, and it will be even more effective and easier when the past year questions are provided topically. This helps to give you clues of what to focus on that particular chapters.

5. Learn how to answer the questions
Keywords, this is how the marks will be given based on the mark scheme. Instead of wasting time writing a long-winded answers with low marks, by practising past years papers and by referring to mark scheme, you can learn how to tackle the questions straight to the main points.

6. Practice until you become God-liked
Once you have done understanding the whole subject, it’s the time to start doing lots of past year papers. it is utterly important to practise the past years. Past year questions not only show you how the questions are set, it gives you a view on how the answers are marked schematically, and also shows you what’s the popular questions are.

7. Fast, Accurate, All on points (FAA)
Now, you can tackle all the questions faster, accurately and all on points.
