It’s important that you learn to develop your examination technique, including answering questions effectively, eradicating careless errors, and using the correct terminology. We’ve got WACE Chemistry past papers from 2016 onwards to help you develop your exam technique.

3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your WACE Chemistry Exam
- Use the syllabus. Examination questions are based on the syllabus. Use the syllabus as your definitive checklist. Also, be familiar with the terms used in the syllabus.
- Understand the differences between related concepts. In particular, the following: intermolecular force and intramolecular force, equivalence point and endpoint, ionisation and dissociation, concentrate/dilute and strong/weak.
- Practise, practise, practise. Practise answering exam-type questions. Write clear, concise and coherent explanations and justifications. Incorporate equations and labelled diagrams that are clear and relevant. Practise writing equations, providing the appropriate formula and state symbols for only those species that are taking part in the reaction unless otherwise directed. Practise writing legibly and setting out your work so it is easy to read and follow.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your WACE Chemistry Exam
- Answer the Question. Answer using the terms requested in the question E.g. if asked for a name, give the name; if asked for a symbol/formula, give the symbol/formula.
- Communicate Effectively. Unless using a key, the examination is not the place for using abbreviations or acronyms. Also, use the appropriate units and express numerical answers to the appropriate significant figures.
- Be familiar with the content of the Data Booklet for your exam. Whenever a colour for a chemical species is provided in the Data Booklet, this is the colour that must be used to describe that species in the examination
