Useful advice on how to answer questions
♦Read the questions carefully
♦Underline key words
♦Don’t muddle key words
…. Does it ask you to explain why something happens ….or describe what happens

eg Explain why copper changes colour when heated (answer found here)

…..If you know you are slow then miss out question that you know you find difficult then when you reach the end go back and try and answer them..
DON’T MISS OUT ANY ANSWERS … If you don’t know then guess!

… Remember always to show your working with calculations and always give units.
