Victoria JC 2023 H2 Chemistry Paper 2

This is the short summary of the Prelim Paper Review I've done for

My 3 matrices:

Relevance: 2.5/10

Insightfulness: 7/10

Difficulty: 8/10

Overall: 4/10

Expectation: 60%

Key questions to consider:

Question 2 - Energetics, Atomic Structure

Question 5 - Organic Chemistry, Nitrogen Compounds, Isomerism

Short writeup:

Upon first look, this looks like a typical VJC H2 Chemistry paper. Questions are unnecessarily tedious to take apart by intentionally omitting diagrams and having more unknowns in the question. Students would find this paper difficult to complete largely due to time management.

The main weakness of the paper is its relevance. It is structured very differently to the A levels. There is little to no application or contextual question. Questions asked are rather far fetched. However, students can still pick up insights from this paper due to how differently this paper was set compared to other school's.

There are plenty of small traps laid throughout the paper and this is recommended as a practice paper for cherry picking of questions. Every question require something more from a student and one would benefit more from thinking deeply and thoroughly about the question rather than worrying about finishing the paper on time.
