Course Description

Awarding Body Welsh Joint Education Committee Course Content Chemistry is a very varied and interesting subject, with great relevance to the outside world. It impacts on many scientific areas including genetic engineering, pollution, pharmaceutical development and medical science. Course Features Application of everyday chemistry. Links to current affairs and developments in Science Develops practical skills commensurate with the qualification Career Prospects and Progression A Levels provide an excellent basis for progression to Higher level qualifications such as degrees or Higher National Diplomas. Chemistry is essential for entry to Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Veterinary Science, and is also required for Forensic Science, Chemical Engineering and Chemical Based Degrees. Chemistry helps to develop a broad range of analytical, and problem solving skills which will be useful in a variety of careers. Modules AS Level Atomic Structure and Radioactivity, Chemical Quantities and Equations, Inorganic Chemistry reactions of the Periodic Table, Industrial Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry including the Greenhouse Effect and Acid Rain. An introduction to Organic Chemistry. Also a study of whether reactions happen Energetics, how fast they happen Kinetics and what the yield is likely to be Equilibria. A2 Level Further Inorganic e.g.. the Transition Metals, and physical chemistry. Lots more Organic chemistry including: the synthesis of important substances such as pharmaceuticals and polymers, and techniques for analysing substances e.g.. Infra-red Spectroscopy and Mass Spectrometry. Also organic practical work, e.g.. the synthesis of aspirin. Method of Assessment Modules 1, 2 4 and 5 are assessed by written examination.
