Qualification Level Level 3
Course type Full Time


Chemistry students study how atoms link together to form larger structures such as molecules, and the mechanisms by which molecules can be reshaped and adapted. This subject occupies a central position between physics, mathematics and engineering on the one hand, and biology, earth science and medicine on the other.


There are 4 modules which make up the AS and A2.

* Foundation Chemistry

* Chemistry in action

* Kinetics, equilibria and organic chemistry

* Energetics, Redox and Inorganic chemistry

The first two are studied at AS level and the last two at

A level. In both courses Investigative and Practical skills

are studied.

How will it be delivered?

Assessment will take the form of written examinations, at the end of the two years of study. A separate endorsement of practical skills will be taken alongside the A-level. This will be assessed by teachers and will be based on direct observation of students.
