Getting to know Papers 1, 2 and 3
At the end of your two year IB Chemistry course you will sit three papers – Papers 1, 2 and 3. Paper 1 is worth 20% of the final marks, Paper 2 is worth 36% of the final marks and Paper 3 is worth 20% of the final marks.
The other assessed part of the course (24%) is made up of the Internal Assessment (practical work), which is marked by your teacher and then moderated by the IBO.
Here is some general advice for the exams:
– Make sure you have learnt the command terms (e.g. evaluate, explain and outline): there is a tendency to focus on the content in the question rather than the command term, but if you do not address what the command term is asking of you then you will not be awarded marks.
– Answer all questions and do not leave gaps.
– Do not write outside the answer boxes provided – if you do so this work will not be marked.
– If you run out of room on the page, use continuation sheets and indicate clearly that you have done this on the cover sheet. The fact that the question continues on another sheet of paper needs to be clearly indicated in the text box provided.
– Plan your time carefully before the exams – this is especially important for Papers 2 and 3.
