3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your QCE Chemistry Exam
- Know the Syllabus. Exam questions often require you to integrate knowledge from separate parts of the syllabus. If you know the syllabus well you’ll more easily be able to quickly identify that topics that questions relate to in the syllabus
- Memorise Chemical Terminology. Throughout the year your teacher will give you chemical terminology that will make it easier for you to understand the topics you study. Memorise these terms and use them in your exam to help you demonstrate your knowledge.
- Look for Patterns in Past Papers. Completing recent past papers you will help you become familiar with common exam questions. Look for patterns that emerge in relation to topics and questions. Similar questions often come up with only slight changes.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your QCE Chemistry Exam
- Underline Verbs in Short Questions. The verbs in short questions tell you exactly what the examiner is expecting in your answer. E.g. Assess means you must show evidence of evaluating in your answer, Identify means you should indicate or name something specific, and Analyse means you must examine, interpret and explain something.
- Communicate Scientifically. When communicating with words, use Chemistry terminology. Keep answers relevant and to the point. When answers involve calculations, set you work out clearly and accurately, showing all your working out. When communicating visually, diagrams should be drawn to scale, ruled and clearly labelled.
- Plan and Check Your Answers. With longer answers, know what you’re going to write about before you start writing. Make sure you’re answering the question not just regurgitating what you know. Make sure you’re answering all aspects of the question.
