Hello :) My name is Mitchell but some people call me Mitch. I am currently a medical student but outside of med school, I love trying out new restaurants, going swimming(preferably in the summer) and playing the piano. I am originally from Zimbabwe and I like to travel back home and other places as often as I can. I enjoy teaching science subjects because that is what I am most familiar with and what I focused on to get into medical school and I hope I can help simplify some concepts and make them more understandable!

Alexis Ciunek
Hi there! I'm Alexis, and I'm known for being a bubbly and patient person. Over the past few years, I've had the pleasure of helping students at all levels achieve their goals and increase their confidence in maths and sciences! Lately, my focus has been on GCSE level students, where I've made it a priority to familiarise my students with the exam structure and questions as well as equipping them with effective strategies to tackle complex problems so they can approach their exams with confidence. Organisation is one of my key traits, so I often create personalised revision schedules and checklists for my new students to ensure they stay on track. I have a friendly and approachable teaching style, and so I tend build strong relationships quickly. When it comes to topics, my favourites are algebra, trigonometry, and energetics, and I'm experienced in teaching KS1, KS2, KS3, GCSE, and AS in Maths and Sciences. Now, a bit about me outside of teaching! I have a passion for martial arts and regularly train japanese jiu-jitsu. In the past, I also used to wrestle (family thing). During weekends, you'll often find me immersed in activities such as painting acrylic landscapes, pursuing crafts, or simply enjoying the great outdoors. Recently, I've taken up a new hobby of learning skipping rope tricks. It's always great to have some fun activities outside of academics! I hope this gives you a friendly and engaging overview of my background and interests. I'm excited to meet and help your children excel in their studies!

Frequently Asked Questions about GCSE chemistry exams

What is GCSE chemistry?

GCSE chemistry is an important subject that is necessary for many A-Levels and university courses. GCSE chemistry can lead to varied careers such as chemical engineering, botany, environmental health, medicine, nutrition, horticulture, and optometry.

Is GCSE chemistry hard?

Yes, the GCSE chemistry course is known for being hard. That’s not to say that students don’t get good grades in it. It’s a fair subject and if your kid puts in the appropriate level of GCSE chemistry revision and makes sure they keep up with the GCSE chemistry lessons as they progress, they will do well.

As with all GCSEs, the difficulty level is subjective. Some kids find GCSE chemistry fairly straightforward but find other subjects more challenging based on their natural talents and interests.

Below are the GCSE chemistry course results for the past three years. You’ll see the grades on the left-hand side and the percentage of students that were awarded each grade to the right.

As you can see GCSE chemistry has a very high pass rate and lots of students get good grades in this subject.

What should I know for GCSE chemistry?

AQA is the largest exam board in the UK and awards more than half of the GCSE qualifications each year. It’s important you find out which GCSE chemistry exam board your child’s school falls under so they know which practice exams to use later.

Here is an overview of what the GCSE chemistry lessons are in the AQA specifications:

  1. Atomic structure and the periodic table

  2. Bonding, structure, and the properties of matter

  3. Quantitative chemistry

  4. Chemical changes

  5. Energy changes

  6. The rate and extent of chemical change

  7. Organic chemistry

  8. Chemical analysis

  9. chemistry of the atmosphere

  10. Using resources

How many GCSE chemistry exams are there?

Sticking with the AQA syllabus, there are two GCSE chemistry exam papers. The first paper will cover topics 1-5 listed above and the second will cover topics 6-10.

How long is a GCSE chemistry exam?

Both of the GCSE chemistry exams are 1 hour and 45 minutes long and they are both equally weighted. They are a combination of multiple-choice questions, closed short answers, structured, and open responses.

Tricks for GCSE chemistry revision

Your teen will need to demonstrate their understanding of the principles taught in the different GCSE chemistry lessons. While the questions on the GCSE chemistry exam will require knowledge of key terms and some memorisation, putting the scientific ideas into practice is where the challenge comes in.

Here are some valuable tricks that will help your child with their GCSE chemistry revision, helping them memorise, learn, and understand the various GCSE chemistry course topics. Set a GCSE chemistry Revision plan

This seemingly obvious and simple task of creating a GCSE chemistry Revision plan is often overlooked. This is the number one step your teen should take in order to avoid cramming, additional stress close to the GCSE chemistry exam time, and clashes with other subjects and their requirements too.

A good GCSE chemistry Revision plan will spread out the study so there is time for plenty of repetition of each topic. It will also include rest days throughout the year so your child can fit in extra-curricular activities, and days off to chill with friends or go to the movies etc.

Create GCSE chemistry revision cards and mind maps

Making small revision cards that your kid can carry around everywhere is a great strategy for GCSE chemistry revision. Spaced repetition is key and making their own GCSE chemistry revision cards means they can colour code them and add images that work for them and stimulate their memory.

Mind maps are another beneficial GCSE chemistry revision tactic. These will help solidify your child’s understanding of the different topics and how they fit together and interact. Rewriting ideas and principles down has been proven to be effective too, rather than just reading.

Just reading over the GCSE chemistry course book or notes isn’t enough. Passive revision can give false hope because your child may think they know everything because they will probably remember seeing it in the GCSE chemistry course book but that doesn’t mean they’ll have the recall when the time comes for the GCSE chemistry exam.

Find lots of past and sample GCSE chemistry exams

Practising GCSE chemistry exams is a great way to find any knowledge gaps. It also prepares your child for the GCSE chemistry exam by making them feel calmer ahead of and on the day. We can’t reiterate how important practice GCSE chemistry exams are. These are the key to getting great grades.

Use private GCSE chemistry tutoring

Using Private GCSE chemistry tutoring will give your kid many advantages. It’s one of the GCSE subjects that we get the most request for support with. That’s because the GCSE chemistry lessons are detailed and there is a substantial amount of content to cover. Unlike some GCSEs, rote learning on its own isn’t the key to success with GCSE chemistry.

A private GCSE chemistry tutor will be able to provide excellent guidance around which revision techniques to use to what degree and for which topics. A good private GCSE chemistry tutor will also have practice and sample GCSE chemistry exams to give your child for revision in their own time and run through any problem areas with them or questions in class.

What to look for in GCSE chemistry tuition

It can be overwhelming looking for the right GCSE chemistry tuition for your kid. Here are some simple rules that apply to most children’s needs.

Go for GCSE chemistry private tuition

We recommend opting for GCSE chemistry private tuition versus group sessions because your kid will get much more out of the classes. One-on-one time is so important to allow your teen to ask questions freely that relate to their more challenging areas. In a group session, they will have to sit through other children’s questions and the tutor’s responses just like a normal classroom situation.

For this reason, GCSE chemistry private tuition saves time by focusing on what your child needs and their strengths and weaknesses.

Opt for GCSE chemistry online tutoring

GCSE chemistry online tutoring affords you the luxury of choosing between thousands of great GCSE chemistry online tutors. Everything is online these days and so are GCSE chemistry tutors. No matter where you live, you can pick the best GCSE chemistry online tutor whether they live in Leeds, Sheffield, London, or Brighton.

Another benefit of GCSE chemistry online tutoring is obviously the saving of travel time. Your kid can just log into a class from the comfort of their bedroom or wherever they choose. The time saved from travelling to a GCSE chemistry tutor across town can be thrown back into study or used for some well-deserved relaxation time or sleep to recharge the batteries.

Find the right GCSE chemistry online tutor

Finding the right GCSE chemistry online tutor is important so that your child feels comfortable with them and you feel confident in them. Make sure the tutor has the appropriate qualifications and is a trained GCSE chemistry tutor.

A good GCSE chemistry online tutor will be happy to offer additional GCSE chemistry online revision for your child to do outside of class time. This should include past GCSE chemistry exams, as well as extra material (e.g. videos) to complement your kid’s standard GCSE chemistry course work.

Is there a GCSE chemistry online course?

Yes, there are lots of good accredited GCSE chemistry online courses available. You may need to go back and take GCSE chemistry if you’ve decided on taking a new career path or your job is paying for training and upskilling you for a new role. Whatever the reason, a GCSE chemistry online course is a great option.

If you opt for a GCSE chemistry online course you can choose which GCSE chemistry exam board you want to follow too. We’d suggest having a look at the syllabus across all of the GCSE chemistry exam boards and also past papers to see which style you prefer. Then you can compare the different GCSE chemistry online course providers based on whatever your parameters are (e.g. cost, start date).

A GCSE chemistry online course is flexible and allows you to fit in work, parenting and other commitments. It also means you’ll receive ample GCSE chemistry online revision so you are ready for your GCSE chemistry exam when the time comes. When you decide to get GCSE chemistry private tuition, we will find you the right person.

GCSE chemistry is an interesting subject that relates to the world around us and everything in it. While it’s not the easiest GCSE, with solid GCSE chemistry revision your child (or you) can get great results. A GCSE chemistry tutor will help to bring it all together and ensure a much smoother ride and a deeper understanding and appreciation of the subject.
