Course Description

A Level Chemistry In A level Chemistry you will learn about what atoms are made of, and how they join together to make simple molecules like carbon dioxide and water, and more complicated structures like diamonds, plastics and proteins. You will carry out some chemical reactions for yourselves, and see others demonstrated by the teacher, or in videos, or simulated on computer. There is a wide range of past questions (and answers) available on the college computer network to help you pass your exams. Chemistry is a popular subject, chosen by about a quarter of our 'A' level students, many of whom go on to read Medicine or other vocational courses such as Pharmacy. Chemistry itself opens the door to careers in many of Europe's most successful industries, and to government agencies whose job is to monitor pollution and protect the environment. Even lawyers can benefit from knowledge of chemistry in order to work in the lucrative field of scientific patents, whilst a number of chemistry graduates also progress into fields such as accountancy. Exam Board / Specification AQA (AS Chemistry, A2 Chemistry) Exam Units (unit no / title): AS Unit 1: Foundation Chemistry (1? hours) Unit 2: Chemistry in Action (1? hours) A2 Unit 3: Kinetics, Equilibria and Organic Chemistry (1? hours) Unit 4: Energetics, Redox and Inorganic Chemistry (1? hours) Coursework details: Coursework contributes 20% of the AS Mark and 20% of the A2 mark (so overall this corresponds to 20% of the total A level marks) Entry Requirements Subject entry requirements: In addition to GCSE English Grade C B in Science and B in Additional Science or BB in GCSE Double Science or B in GCSE Chemistry and one other science, also B in GCSE Mathematics. Please note that Applied Science is not accepted for this course. Students who have an A or B in AS Chemistry already can be admitted direct into the Year 2 A2 classes BUT be warned this limits your choices at the end of the year, and if a change of Board is needed, you won't be able to resit any AS modules.
