A few updates (mostly to AQA notes). Some students have been asking for a practical revision guide. I will not be producing one at the moment. I took the decision to integrate the practical notes into the relevant chapters with the linked theory, and I think this is the best way to approach the practical material. The AQA paper 3 will be a combined practical and synoptic theory paper.
I have done some updates to practical material though, notably in 1-6-revision-guide-equilibria where I have included extensive notes on the practical measuring kc. This is not actually a required practical but it has been a favourite in the past on AQA practical papers. I have also included notes on solving equilibrium constant equations algebraically which I think are going to appear on the new exams (although not with quadratic equations).
I have changed terminology in 1-2-revision-guide-calculations to use uncertainty instead of error.
The other chapters I have changed have been labelled with (updated February 2017)
I have also produced a aqa-mechanisms-a-level-summary for the new syllabus
I have put the old legacy guides back for those doing retakes because I have had many requests.
Everyone currently studying in present yr 12 and yr 13 should be doing the new syllabus. They are all up to date and complete.
I’ve uploaded some AQA revision guides on the missing topics on amino acids and chromatography. I have also made some minor changes to other topics in line with the first set of new AS exams.
I have updated the notes on the mass spectrometer to match the recent supplementary information added to the AQA website and the specimen questions.

The revision guides for the new Edexcel syllabus are now complete and can be found here https://chemrevise.org/3-edexcel-revision-guides/
The old syllabus guides are still there on the same page
I have now completed the revision guides for the new syllabus for OCR Chemistry A.
Find them at the top of the page https://chemrevise.org/ocr-revision-guides/
The old syllabus guides are at the bottom of the same page.
I’m sure there will be some typo’s to be corrected and things to be improved over time!
I have created a few new chapters for the e-textbook on the year 12 organic chemistry content. Remember the e-text book is not tied to any one syllabus and has more detail than the revision guides. They all contain relevant questions (some of which are more demanding or more open ended than a usual A-level paper).
