Revision quizzes for A level Chemistry, AQA, CCEA, CIE, Edexcel, IB, OCR, Salters, WJEC, UK, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, International
Each time you get a question right you score a point, however, you also lose a point each time you get a question wrong.
The quiz tracks your accumulated score, i.e. (number of correct answers) - (number of incorrect answers). Your accumulated score can never drop below zero.
The quiz also tracks the number of questions you have got right in a row (your consecutive score).
You achieve level 1 when your accumulated score reaches 10 and you achieve level 2 when your accumulated score reaches 20 and so on up to level 9.
You achieve level 10 when your consecutive score reaches 10 and you achieve level 20 when your consecutive score reaches 20 and so on up to level 90
Your overall level is the sum of the levels you have achieved for accumulated and consecutive scores.
The maximum score that can be achieved for a quiz is level 99.
There are two choices when it comes to selecting which quiz to do next.
You can use the contents page to see the quizzes arranged by unit, module and topic following the pattern of your exam specification.
Alternatively, you can choose a circuit for the unit or module you wish to revise.
Circuits automate the process of moving from quiz to quiz by letting you choose to move on automatically after you have successfully answered a set number of questions or after you have spent a certain amount of time on the quiz.
Individual topics also operate as circuits, although by default the option to randomise the order of the quizzes in a topic is turned off.
The various options for controlling how a circuit or topic works can be found on the settings page.
Michael Docker received a first class honours degree in Chemistry from the University of Birmingham in 1984 and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of Nottingham in 1987.
After two years post-doctoral research at the University of Zurich and three years industrial experience with BP Research he began working as a teacher of A level Chemistry.
From 1997 to 1999 he was Head of Chemistry at The Sixth Form College, Farnborough.
Between 1999 and 2011 he was Director of Information, Communication and Learning Technology also at The Sixth Form College, Farnborough.
In 2011 Michael left Farnborough to begin work as an independent software developer. The web app you are currently using is the first fruit of his labours.
Your web browser lacks key features needed by ChemGym.
Perhaps it is time to upgrade or to switch to a modern browser like Google Chrome.
Your browser does not fully support the html canvas element. ChemGym depends on this element to draw diagrams and chemical structures for virtually every quiz so ChemGym will not function usefully on your browser.
Your browser does not support local storage so ChemGym will not be able to save your registration details and settings. It should still work provided you always launch it from the link you were sent when you registered.
Your browser does not support an application cache so ChemGym will only work when you have a connection to the Internet.
Your browser does not support SVG (scalable vector graphic) images. ChemGym only uses these in one quiz (on infra red spectroscopy) so this quiz will not work properly for you but the other quizzes may.
Your browser does not support html audio, so ChemGym probably won't play any of its sound effects. This by itself should not prevent you from using ChemGym.
