3. What can I do to prepare myself for Chemistry?

  • Listen actively in lectures – highlight key phrases and constantly think about what is being said. When time is given during lectures to attempt questions, take part actively.
  • Complete the relevant self-check questions as indicated on the lecture notes once the lecture content is covered. Once the self-check questions are complete, check the answers and consult your tutor if you have doubts.
  • Once you are confident about the self-check questions, move on to the discussion questions. These will be discussed in tutorials.
  • Revise your work periodically. There will be revision packages with suggested schedules to help you stay on track.
