Chemistry A-Level AQA Chemistry is the study of atoms and molecules. Their structure, bonding, properties, reactions, interactions and uses.
In year 12 students study:
Two modules which cover organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, as well as all relevant practical skills. A level chemistry covers all the topics covered in GCSE chemistry, but to a much higher level. These include mole calculations, rates of reactions, equilibria, redox, enthalpy changes as well as alkanes, alkenes, haloalkanes and the periodic table.
In year 13 students study:
Two further modules which build upon the areas of study covered in the first year including relevant practical work.
To achieve an A Level qualification students will complete three 2 hour examinations in June of the second year of study.
Continuous assessment will be used to inform the student's progression into Year 13 and their registration for the A Level Chemistry exam.
