Abstract: This paper reports on in-depth interview studies conducted with Advanced level students (11th and 12th graders) in the UK and Singapore to examine their ability to reason scientifically when confronted with a range of chemical phenomena. The results show that the majority of the students studied were unable to reason scientifically. The paper presents some such cases. It also discusses some of the possible reasons behind these students' difficulties as well as suggestions on their alleviation.
