So…you want to get A1 for O Levels Chemistry
It’s Ms Joyce here from Ace Chemistry, with a COOL O Levels Chemistry TIP for you…
You need to study different types of questions on all relevant topics etc. FROM EVERYWHERE!
To make matters worse, sometimes students need to be exposed to the same content as much as 7 times before they will remember.? So, its basically a numbers game. The more you study your notes and source for different types of questions, the more exposure you have, the more understanding you will achieve and ultimately better grades.
The PROBLEM is – its HARD work, takes a lot of time and its SUPER BORING to spend hours each day doing questions and memorising hundreds of pages of information. Let alone scouring through the thousands of questions to see what kind of questions will appear.
That is why we created this 3 hours program,
“HOW TO SCORE IN OPEN ENDED QUESTIONS FOR O-LEVEL PURE CHEMISTRY EXAMINATION”
(A 3 hours workshop by?Ms Joyce?– with special focus on A Level Questions that are frequently asked in the O Level paper)
This POWERFUL 3 hours workshop can:
– Save you time (because we scoured through thousands of questions for you)
– Earn you potentially more than 10% of O levels chemistry marks
– Have an edge over your friends who do not know this (Bell curve remember)
– Prevent you from wasting time in confusion from trying to learn unfamiliar A level concepts yourself
Before you pull your hair out, or suffer from a panic attack, not knowing why you do not know how to do certain TYS questions.
You may want to know that
Since the 2010 O level Exam,?more & more A-level related questions are being tested in the O-level examination.
This is especially true in the open-ended questions where A-level related concepts are used as examples to test the students? understanding & their application skills.
below is a 10 marks open ended question from 2010 Pure Chem O level paper (Sect B, QB9, Nov 2010) which involves the analysis of Titration curve where students will learn only in A level Chemistry:
10 Marks Question (A Level concept required – Analysis of Titration curve)
Here’s another example.
12 Marks Question (A Level concept required – Disproportionation)
Now do not get us wrong.?
We are not saying that cambridge is unfair or our school teachers are not doing their job.
Most students will be able to answer the questions.
Provided ……they have enough time to think and analyse. Or if they have seen it before. (Some schools constantly expose students to A level qns)
However, we believe in preparing the student
so he/ she will be able to handle the question within the given timeframe.
They will not feel intimidated
when such unfamiliar questions are posted in the exam & thus are able to attempt the questions confidently.
As tutors we need to be constantly aware of the type of questions asked & use the correct knowledge to tackle them.
This is one of the examination techniques needed to score well for the subject.
We believe this 3 hours workshop will equip the students with the additional tools to score confidently.
Content & Concepts that will be covered in the 3 hours workshop:?
Atomic Structure & Periodic Table
– Ionisation Energy
– Redox Titration & Back Titration
Acids, Bases & Salts
– Titration Curve
– Dibasic & Tribasic & their Hydrogenated salts
– Haber Process (Le Chatelier?s Principle)
– Decomposition of Nitrates
– Metals reaction with nitric acid
– Simple cells & Salt bridge
Speed of Reaction
– Calorimeter experiment
Energy from Chemicals
– Energy profile diagram with transition state & involvement of intermediate in a chemical reaction
Organic Chem ? Hydrocarbons
– Alkynes & their addition reaction
Organic Chem ? Esters, Carboxylic Acid, Alcohols
– Hydrolysis (Reverse of esterification)
Unfortunately due to time and space constraints, we can only hold this workshop on the 4 Oct 2014 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Serangoon Gardens branch. One time only.
Course fee: $150/ pax (New student $25 reg fee)

Your friend in studying,
P.S We are NOT planning a big group as our classroom can only hold 12 – 15 pax. So do register early.
