Chemistry is a linear A level course that requires, and develops, a variety of skills from mathematical calculations and problem solving to analysis and practical skills. The study of Chemistry allows us to understand more about the world, including fuel cells, pharmaceutical synthesis, buffer systems in cosmetics and why and how reactions happen.
It is 100% exam based with the practical endorsement reported separately from the A level grade. The practical endorsement allows opportunity to develop fundamental skills needed to collect and analyse empirical data. Skills in planning, implementing, analysing and evaluating, will also be developed throughout the course and will be assessed in the written papers.
