Frequently Asked Questions
What is the IB Chemistry SL Questionbank?
The IB Chemistry SL Questionbank is a comprehensive set of IB Chemistry exam style questions, categorised into syllabus topic and concept, and sorted by difficulty of question. The bank of exam style questions are accompanied by high quality step-by-step markschemes and video tutorials, taught by experienced IB Chemistry teachers. The IB Chemistry SL Question bank is the perfect exam revision resource for IB students looking to practice IB Chemistry exam style questions in a particular topic or concept in their IB Chemistry Standard Level course.
Where should I start in the Chemistry SL Questionbank?
The IB Chemistry SL Questionbank is designed to help IB students practice Chemistry SL exam style questions in a specific topic or concept. Therefore, a good place to start is by identifying a concept that you would like to practice and improve in and go to that area of the Chemistry SL Question bank. For example, if you want to practice Chemistry SL exam style questions covering Electron Configuration, you can go to Chemistry SL Topic 2 (Atomic Structure) and go to the Electron Configuration area of the question bank. On this page there is a carefully designed set of IB Chemistry SL exam style questions, progressing in order of difficulty from easiest to hardest. If you’re just getting started with your revision, you could start at the top of the page with the easiest questions, or if you already have some confidence, you could start at the medium difficulty questions and progress down.
How should I use the Chemistry SL Questionbank?
The Chemistry SL Questionbank is perfect for revising a particular topic or concept, in-depth. For example, if you wanted to improve your knowledge of Electron Configuration, there are over 20 IB Chemistry SL exam style questions focused specifically on this concept. Alternatively, Revision Village also has an extensive library of Chemistry SL Practice Exams, where students can simulate the length and difficulty of an IB exam with the Mock Exam sets, as well as Chemistry SL Key Concepts, where students can learn and revise the underlying theory, if missed or misunderstood in class.
What if I finish the Chemistry SL Questionbank?
With an extensive and growing library of full length IB Chemistry SL exam style questions in the Chemistry SL Question bank, finishing all of the questions would be a fantastic effort, and you will be in a great position for your final exams. If you were able to complete all the questions in the Chemistry SL Question bank, then a popular option would be to go to the Chemistry SL Practice Exams section on Revision Village and test yourself with the Mock Exam Papers, to simulate the length and difficulty of an actual IB Chemistry SL exam.
