Since the primary aim for this chemistry blog is to provide academic support for GCE Advanced Level (A-Level) Chemistry students, we would need to take reference from a certain chemistry syllabus.
In view that i am based in Singapore, discussions will be based on the famous Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-Level Higher 2 Chemistry Syllabus which is offered in all Junior Colleges (JC) and Centralised Institute. We will cover all the core topics that is required for GCE A-Level H2 Chemistry examination (syllabus code 9647), such as:
A) Physical Chemistry
- Atoms, Molecules & Stoichiometry
- Atomic Structure
- Chemical Bonding
- The Gaseous State
- Chemical Energetics
- Reaction Kinetics
B) Inorganic Chemistry
- Chemical Periodicity (The Periodic Table)
- Gp II Elements
- Gp VII Elements
- Transition Elements
C) Organic Chemistry
- Halogen Derivatives
- Hydroxy Compounds
- Carbonyl Compounds
- Carboxylic Acids & Derivatives
- Nitrogen Compounds
In this blog, you will find discussion on questions related to GCE A-Level H2 Chemistry examination (syllabus code: 9647) and the suggested answers. I will also share with you the thought process and strategies taken to solve the questions. I will also be sharing with you on common mistakes that are made by my students (in my A-Level JC1 / JC2 H2 Chemistry tuition classes or in their JC’s preliminary exams and block tests) as much as possible. All these will certainly help you to like Advanced Chemistry more and thus improve your grades.
PS: GCE A-Level H1 Chemistry has about half the content of H2 Chemistry, but the content would not be studied to the same depth as it is at H2 Chemistry. Check Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) to have a clearer picture what is required for H2 Chemistry and H1 Chemistry.
In order to benefit from this blog A-Level H2 Chemistry, students must have Basic Chemistry knowledge and understanding of Chemistry at O-Level, as a Pure Science subject or as part of a Combine Science course. If you need help with regards to Basic Chemistry, please check out my GCE O-Level Chemistry blog.
PPS: If you are taking other A-Level or equivalent Chemistry syllabuses, you can check with the SEAB website to see if the course content is similar to what you have.
