Course Description

A2 Level Chemistry (OCR) You'll study everything from basic chemical principles to organic chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and instrumental techniques for analysis. Chemistry is the study of the elements and their compounds and brings together elements of Physics and Biology. The emphasis is on up-to-date contexts and applications. What will I be doing? AS Level (First Year of Course) Unit F321 Atoms, Bonds and Groups In this unit you will learn about atoms, their structure and the reactions of some elements and compounds, types of bonding and structure and the Periodic Table. Unit F322 Chains, Energy and Resources In this unit you will learn about the basic concepts of Organic Chemistry, Energetic Reactions and our resources. These will include the study of organic compounds like hydrocarbons, alcohols, halogenoalkanes and the analysis of organic compounds. You will also study reactions involving energy changes and the earth's resources. Unit F323 Practical Skills in Chemistry 1 In this unit you will have your practical and investigative skills assessed in 3 separate tasks. Task 1: Qualitative, to assess what is present; Task 2: Quantitative, to assess how much is present and Task 3: Evaluative to assess the quality of data and procedures. A2 Level (Second Year of Course) Unit F324 Rings, Polymers and Analysis Rings, acids and amines Polymers and synthesis Analysis Unit F325 Equilibria, Energetics and Elements Rates, equilibrium and pi- Energy Transition Elements Unit F326 Practical Skills in Chemistry 2 You will be assessed on your skills carrying out one task from each of the following categories: Qualitative, Quantitive and Evaluative tasks. How will I be assessed? This course is examined by the OCR Board by short tests and coursework in each year. The AS year will involve a one hour written examination for Unit F321 and a one hour 45 minute written examination for Unit F322 both of which are composed of short answer questions. Unit F323 is assessed internally with 3 practical tasks. Entry Requirements for AS/A-levels 5 A* to C passes at GCSE which should include at least grade B in Additional Science (or Chemistry) and a B in GCSE Maths. What can I do after completing this course? Chemistry A-level is essential for medicine, pharmacy, dentistry and chemical engineering, for entry to a degree course in pure and applied chemistry, and in many other areas such as biotechnology, genetics, biochemistry, biological sciences, environmental sciences and geology. It is also essential for entry to degree courses in chemistry combined with other subjects such as law, business management, languages, materials, food science and forensic science.
