Chemistry is the central science that connects physics and biology. Chemistry studies the reactions and processes that happen on an atomic scale. Engineers then increase it to an industrial scale while minimizing losses and the environmental impact. Fundamental skills that will be essential include mass balance, chemical bonding, and the forming of chemical formulas. Subsequently, the focus shifts to understanding basic and important chemical reactions such as acid-base and salts reactions. The last area of focus is industrial chemical reactions and the impact on the environment. Industrial chemical reactions include the formation of fertilizers and the production of iron and fuels. Students are required to utilize previous chapters to study future chapters in the O level syllabus. Most of the students have a hard time picking up the fundamental skills required to move forward with the subject which leads to last-minute studying before exams. 

•  To provide a clear and easy method of picking up fundamental skills to move forward with the subject
•  Developing essential study habits to enhance memorization
•  Developing pattern analyzing skills to interpret data-based questions
•  To provide general knowledge on everyday chemical reactions and the importance of it through real life examples
•  Time management during exams
