A level Chemistry Tuition

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.

I improved a lot in chemistry during my time here at bright culture. The teacher was really engaging and really did a did dive into multiple chemistry concepts which was beneficial to me. This really helped in the notorious section C of the chemistry paper 2. The teacher would also any questions that I have, the classroom has a really conducive learning environment, so I wasn’t afraid to ask questions as well. Highly recommend you to come sign up

was struggling with doing chem in general because I felt that it was a subject that was really hard to score. one of my worst subjects I averaged c5 to c6 even after studying. Ms Bernice helped go thru 10 years of the tys and allowed me to clarify doubts, hence I got a b3 for o levels.

Came across it cuz I was looking for a holiday crash course to buck up my chemistry at it matched my schedule. Found it interesting how there would be different teachers for different topics and it kept the class not boring at all since everyone has a diff method of teaching. The teachers was nice and detailed and always willing to repeat when I didn’t understand and answer my questions. I like how u can opt for additional afternoon lessons just to do questions and go through cuz it’s something I rarely do on my own and it helped to make my foundation stronger. Overall a great way to get a revision of sec3 and a heads up of sec4

I thoroughly enjoyed this crash course as it allowed me to gain a better grasp and understanding of integral concepts that are very hard to pick up on. Would recommend to those who have a poor foundation and would like to build up their chemistry understandings again!

I attended the S3 / S4 Final Sprint Program at Bright Culture just before my O Levels and it helped me to revise all the topics tested in the O Level. The teacher was very patient and answered my questions. The program also came with guidebooks which explain all the concepts needed clearly 👍
