O Level Chemistry Tuition Singapore

H1/H2 Chemistry

A-Level Chemistry is a core science subject that offers promising career prospects. However, mastering this challenging subject requires dedicated effort and a strong foundation. At Bright Culture, we understand the intricacies of A-Level Chemistry, and our specialised H1/H2 Chemistry Tuition equips students with the tools they need to excel.

A-Level Chemistry is divided into two levels: H1 and H2. H1 Chemistry covers chemical equilibria, the periodic table, stoichiometry, and kinetics.

H2 Chemistry builds on H1 concepts, introducing additional topics like electrochemistry and organic chemistry alongside practical skills assessment.

H1 Chemistry focuses on understanding key concepts and their applications, suitable for students not pursuing science majors. H2 Chemistry delves deeper into topics essential for students aiming for science-related disciplines like Dentistry, Medicine, and Engineering.

H2 Chemistry topics

Here are some of H2 Chemistry topics for the new syllabus:

Organic Chemistry:

  • Halogen Derivatives

Physical Chemistry:

  • Acid-base Equilibrium

Organic Chemistry:

  • Hydroxy Compounds
  • Carbonyl Compounds
  • Carboxylic Acids & Derivatives
  • Nitrogen Compounds

Physical Chemistry:

  • Electrochemistry
  • Solubility Equilibrium
  • Theories of Acids & Bases

Inorganic Chemistry:

  • Physical & Chemical Periodicity
  • Group 2
  • Group 17
  • Transition Elements

Syllabus breakdown

Based on our analysis of the H2 Chemistry syllabus breakdown in our JC Chemistry tuition, Paper 3, Free-Response Questions, carries the highest weightage at 35%. Paper 2, Structured Questions, follows closely at 30%, comprising 65% of the total grade. This significant portion emphasises the importance of preparing for long-answer question types. The remaining 35% is divided between Multiple Choice Questions (15%) in Paper 1 and the Practical (20%). Students must pay attention to the mark weightage of the Practical and focus on enhancing their evaluation and problem-solving skills in real-world scenarios.

Why Is H2 Chemistry More Challenging?

  1. Challenging Topics: Organic Chemistry demands in-depth knowledge of reaction pathways, functional groups, and compound classes.
  2. Practical Paper: H2’s practical exam tests students’ skills on various topics, including Equilibria, Stoichiometry, Chemistry Practical Work,  and more.
  3. Abstract Concepts: H2 requires students to grasp complex concepts, making it less intuitive than H1.
  4. Balancing Academics: Juggling ECAs and academics can be daunting, but finding a balance is crucial for success.

Tips for Acing A-Level Chemistry

  1. Create a Study Plan: Plan and manage study time, revision, and practice sessions effectively.
  2. Avoid Cramming: Steady-paced learning is key to understanding complex concepts.
  3. Stay Consistent: Attend lectures, pay attention, and maintain consistency in studying.
  4. Use Resources: Utilize A-Level Chemistry tuition, study guides, past papers, and online videos.
  5. Study with Peers: Collaborate with classmates to gain diverse perspectives and motivation.
  6. Regular Revision: Continuously revise previous concepts to reinforce understanding.
  7. Avoid Burnout: Allocate leisure time for mental and physical well-being.

Hi!! Here’s my honest feedback: i really enjoyed all the 10 lessons i attended because the teacher (ms bernice tay) went through the notes very thoroughly and explained the concepts very well! The notes given were neat and concise too, very helpful for answering questions! + they were coloured YAY 🌈 Ms Tay’s teaching made me less afraid of chemistry too HAHAHA 🤣 i already recommended Bright Culture to my friend because i felt that others would also learn a lot there :)) on a side note the other teachers like ms anna and mr benjamin and another 2 teachers (i’m not sure of their name 🫤) were really patient and helpful too! 😄👍

The class was really good! I learnt a lot and the teachers were all so friendly and interesting. Didn’t feel tired a bit and I now have a better understanding of chemistry. I also love how the teacher would connect chapters together. Very fun! Glad i saw their ad on instagram 🙂

At first I was actually dreading the crash courses bc they were so long but they were actually super helpful and fun! Didn’t feel exhausted after 5 hours of the module and practice! 🙂 the Teachers are also all super nice and i like how even though it’s in a big class they still go by to each student individually to help them out, and even if you don’t know how to do the task assigned they don’t get angry at all!! 😮😮😮 overall bright culture super good 👍👍👍 thx!!
