Hi there, to clarify, are you referring to the school-based Science Practical Assessment taken by Pure chemistry students or the Science Practical Exams taken by combined chemistry students?
Is for combine science students :) . Thanks

Combined chemistry students will most likely be doing identification of unknown ions.

1) It will be useful for the student to be familiar with this reference table.
It is page 36 in this document.

http://www.seab.gov.sg/content/syllabus ... 8_2017.pdf

This table will be provided during the practical, but I'll encourage them to be familiar with it before hand rather than try to make sense of it during the test itself.

2) Basically, the test consists of following the instructions, writing down the observations and making conclusions.
Writing observations - the student can use the relevant phrases described in the table
Making conclusions - this part is largely dependent on the observations.

Students are usually stressed about making the conclusion but keeping things in perspective. The chemistry practical is "only 7.5%" and the conclusion part is an only small portion. There are more marks to make up for it in the theory papers.

3) The questions are quite varied, so I will not try to "predict" anything more specific. I've seen past year papers on O-level practicals available in the bookshop, you can buy them to have a sense of the questions.
If however, you have specific questions, feel free to clarify.

I recommend Mr Wong, very experienced, former NYGH and ACSI teacher if I'm not wrong. He teaches in small group class at future acadmey. I'll pm you his link if you are interested.

Why most schools are using Chemistry Matters textbook, and not all about chemistry: o level?
