Yishun-Innova JC 2020 H2 Chemistry Paper 3

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

My 3 matrices:

Relevance: 5/10

Insightfulness: 6/10

Difficulty: 5/10

Overall: 6.5/10

Expectation: 75%

Key questions to consider:

Question 2 - Reaction Kinetics, Chemical Bonding, Organic Synthesis

Question 3 - Nitrogen Compounds, Elucidation, Electrophoresis

Short writeup:

The YIJC 2020 H2 Chemistry Paper 3 is a strategic choice for preparing JC2 students for their upcoming Mid-Year exams. This paper offers a well-rounded spread of topics, ensuring students can recap almost the entire syllabus on the day before their exams.

Most students will find the questions in this paper quite typical. Many are technical and may seem familiar, as they are drawn from their tutorials. Even the application questions, sourced from other prelim papers or past A level papers, are common ones that students are expected to handle well.

Overall, this paper is recommended for all students to attempt a few days before their Mid-Year exams. It is a reasonable paper for those who have done sufficient revision by completing the school's revision packages. While it effectively prepares a JC2 student for the Mid-Year exams, it may lack the depth and creativity needed for the actual A levels. Therefore, students should use this paper as a pre-Mid-Year exam practice rather than as preparation for the A levels.

For a detailed review and personalized feedback, consider a one-time consultation session with me to go through this paper after I have marked it. This will help you understand your mistakes and improve your performance.
