How to study for H2 Chemistry
1. Understanding the requirements of the subject
The different JC Chemistry chapters require different aspect of understanding. Some topics focus on memorization (eg Organic Chemistry), while some topics focus on application of formulae (eg acid-base equilibrium). Our Chemistry Tutors from Sophia Education Tuition Centre Singapore will accurately identify and go through the respective features of the chapters with you through her chemistry small group tuition or her 1-to-1 tuition, ensuring that you will completely understand the requirements.
2. Different types of questions
For big topics (eg organic chem, chem bonding), break them up into small sections to memorise. Just reading the formulae isn’t going to work. Set a certain amount of time to memorise. Then, take a blank piece of paper and test yourself.
Often, students understand what the question wants generally, but the answers they provide tend to miss certain key points. For these type of questions, read the model answers, take note of where the marks are awarded and record them down. Every other day, revisit the question again, ensuring that you have memorized them.
For every question, identify the chapters and concepts needed first. Then, proceed to attempting the questions. In this way, when you are stuck, you would know the concepts that you are weak in. Clear up any misunderstanding with your teacher or tutor.
3. MCQ questions
Record down those questions that you have gotten wrong into a notebook. After a few days, revise the notebook. Then, cancel out those questions that you can do. Similarly, after a few more days, revisit the questions again and cancel out those that you understand. This helps to narrow down your misunderstandings to the few problematic questions and concepts.
4. Summary notes
Write your own notes. Whether it is using a mind map, flashcard or even through highlighting, it is the process that helps you to interlink the different concepts together.
5. Practice full-length H2 Chemistry papers
Taking an exam requires stamina. The exam duration is often a few hours long, and those with poor stamina tends to lose their drive and enthusiasm halfway through. Hence, practising full-length papers beforehand is the key to building up that stamina.
6. Study plan
Create a study plan by blocks of 1 hour, which consists of 45 mins of studying followed by 15 mins of resting. Ensure that you do not revise a subject continuously for too long. A good spread of different subjects helps your brain to stay awake and interested.

Sophia Education: Top Notch JC Chemistry Tuition Centre in Singapore
The Struggle of A Level Chemistry
JC Chemistry, let alone H2 Chemistry, has got to be one of the hardest subjects a student can take in the A level exams.
The subject boasts an extensive Chemistry Syllabus: From topics like Organic Chemistry, Mole and others which require both intense memorisation and application skills, to nerve-wrecking Exam components like the Practical Assessment. Students’ struggle to nab decent grades for A Level Chemistry, however, doesn’t just end at its killer syllabus.
They must also face nation-wide competition with the many other JC students taking H2 Chemistry. This is due to the fact that H2 Chemistry is often a pre-requisite into many University courses like Medicine, Engineering, Nursing and etc. With fierce subject competition and so many difficult but key concepts to learn, it is no wonder so many JC students turn to Chemistry tuition in Singapore to boost up their grades.

7 Methods that will boost your H2 Chemistry Grade
1. There is no running away from memorising.
Memorise in smaller sections
Memorising is something you’ll have no choice but to do. You can make it easier for yourself by splitting the topic into smaller sections as factual materials and assessment notes are structured heavily.
Give yourself a time limit to memorise each information. After you’re done, test yourself on the syllabus topic and see if you can do it.
Repeatedly Write Down
Another way to help yourself is to write down all the things you need to know into a notebook. You can even make you own chemistry notes that are data based and from factual material from the h1 h2 chemistry syllabus. Categorise them by topics and chapters, like Atomic Structure, Reaction Kinetics etc.
Flashcards so it’s easy to bring around and fit in little revision time through out the day. This will help you to summarise points and remember formulas easily.
2. Every topic is different, and has a certain focus and way to study it.
Some topics like Acid and Base Equilibria require more application techniques of the formula to the question, and some topics need intense memorising like Transition Metals and Enthalpy Change. Make sure you know what each topic entails and know what are the types of questions that will appear for that topic, and get familiar with them.
3. Conquer Application Questions.
Here’s how to conquer them:
- Know which topic the question is testing and think about the equations, ideas and concepts related to that topic.
Use important keywords related to that topic.
Relate the foreign situation in your paper to something you learnt in your lecture notes and take note on how they are similar and how they are different, tweaking your answer to the new information provided.
4. Take note of the questions you made mistakes on.
It will be good to compile everything into one place like a notebook, so you can revise them regularly and won’t make the same mistake again.
For MCQ Questions that you answer wrongly, copy the MCQ Question onto the notebook so you have a list of questions to take note of and can revise before the MCQ exam. Ask questions and Clear any unsure questions as soon as possible
Also, ask your tutor to explain anything you don’t understand as soon as possible in order to clear your misunderstand quickly. If not, you’ll probably forget that you had that confusion very soon after.
5. Know what the examiners want to see on your script.
Take note of the learning objectives of each topic, and memorise certain keywords and phrases that is part of their marking scheme (eg. decolourises brown aqueous bromine, higher frequency of effective collisions, in a sealed tube under high pressure)
6. Condense the information for your easier revision.
Use short forms such as ex. conc. (excess, concentrated) and ox, red (oxidation, reduction) and write in point form for your own notes. Some topics such as Organic Chemistry can be written into mind maps (especially since each family is related to each other) for easy reference!
7. Practical help
Here are some tips:
Know the common topics that might come out and what they can test you.
Study past year JC papers and read through how other people answer.
Read through the answer given for planning questions so you know the basic format of what the examiner’s marking scheme is like.
A lot of students have the general idea of how to answer the question but cannot get full marks. Make sure you write down the key points that the examiner wants to see to get your deserved marks.
