A Level Chemistry.
Core Curriculum A Level Chemistry.

Chemistry is everywhere, helping us explain the processes that allow life to occur to enabling the construction of space age materials.

Chemistry is the study of substances, what they are made of, how they interact and how they alter the world around us.

Having A Level Chemistry is an essential qualification for students wishing to study a diverse range of courses at University including Medicine, Dentistry, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, and Veterinary Science and also for careers such as Accountancy, Patent Attorneys, and environmental consultancy.

You will study the three main aspects of chemistry:

  • Physical chemistry: the how and why reactions take place.
  • Organic chemistry: the study of carbon chemistry, including how to identify functional groups and their role in life.
  • Inorganic chemistry: focuses on the trends and patterns present in chemistry, understanding these allows to you make predictions about the unknowns and develop problem solving skills.
