This quiz consists of 10 Amount of substance multiple choice questions for the AQA AS and A-Level Chemistry specification.

The questions are a similar style and level of difficulty to the multiple-choice questions you’ll be given in the AQA Chemistry exams.

Though they’re based on the AQA specification, they’re also appropriate for students studying other exam boards.

Some of these questions are straightforward, some of them are horrible. You need to know how to do all of them by the time the exams come around though, so if there’s anything you can’t do (even if it seems a bit weird) make sure you work backward from the answer and figure out why the answer is what it is.

AMOUNT OF SUBSTANCE MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS

If you’re using this as a test, allow yourself around 11-12 minutes to answer these questions. If you’re using them to learn from, feel free to use your textbook to help you.

As always with Chemistry, make sure you have your periodic table and your calculator handy.
