For O Level Chemistry, there is less emphasis on factual materials and greater emphasis on the understanding and application of scientific concepts and principles.
Beyond recognising chemical formulas, you will also learn how to sieve out important information and organise them in a variety of ways. You will also be tasked to identify patterns, report trends, draw inference and answer unfamiliar or unconventional questions. While you may not be comfortable with these sort of questions, they are becoming more common. Hence, it is essential that you learn how to use principles and concepts that are within the syllabus and apply them in a logical, reasoned and deductive manner to a novel situation.
Establishing a good foundation for O Level Chemistry will ensure that you will be better able to cope with the rigour of A Level Chemistry, as the skills required to tackle chemistry questions at any level are similar.
