Exam Board: AQA
You will develop and enhance your knowledge in three main areas: physical, organic and inorganic chemistry.
You will learn in detail about topics such as atomic structure, bonding and chemical equilibria as well as electrode potentials and electrochemical cells in physical chemistry. You will study the periodic table in detail through topics like periodicity, transition metals and the reactions of group 1 and 7, helping to develop your passion for inorganic chemistry. In organic chemistry you will cover a broad range of topics, learning about a variety of functional groups and their reactions. In addition you will learn about different spectroscopy and chromatography techniques.
There will be a large amount of hands-on experience and you will have the opportunity to learn and use practical skills to link theory with practice, deepening your knowledge of the world of chemistry.
Our general entry requirements are that you will need a minimum of five Grade 6s in your GCSEs to study A-Levels.
One of those grade 6s must be in Chemistry. If you have studied double science, you will need a minimum of 6-5, plus the general entry requirements.
We do not recommend this course if you have not achieved a grade 6 in your maths GCSE due to the high maths content of the course.
