Studying your A-Level

A-Level Chemistry allows you to build on your GCSE knowledge. The course is a big step up but you’re rewarded with rich and varied areas of study.

A-Level Chemistry allows you to study the very building blocks of life and how they interact with one another.

You will study atomic structure and bonding, the Periodic Table, alcohols, hydrocarbons, alkanes and chemical equilibrium, amongst others.

This qualification has been designed according to the AQA’s syllabus so you will complete the course with strong chemistry knowledge. This will allow you to go on to study Chemistry or other Science-related degrees at university.

The units follow a logical structure with an introduction to Science.

You will then move on to study Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry.

The modules are designed to help you familiarise yourself with essential concepts in Chemistry in an organised, step-by-step way. This is to ensure you will be fully prepared for studying chemistry at Level 4 or higher.

This course bundle not only includes all the course material but the three exam papers you’ll need to gain your A-Level in chemistry. The exams will cover a range of subject matter from the course including physical chemistry, organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry.

Only when you have completed and passed all three exams will you be awarded your A-Level.

While the exams will determine your passing grade, practical knowledge is essential to the sciences. That is why you have the option of taking the practical exam alongside your studies. 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’ competency in a range of skills that are not assessable in written exams.

Note that you will have to book your practical exams in advance of your written exams,  so take that into account when planning your studies.

Getting Started

A-Level Chemistry is completely online, which means you can enrol and access your course materials at any point.

Each module has an assignment to complete, which you can then upload on to your virtual learning platform. Your tutor will mark your work and provide you with the necessary feedback to help you progress on your course.

The only specific deadline to work towards is your exam – exam sittings are held once per year in May or June.

Chemistry can be challenging, so even though all your studies will be online, you should never feel alone studying with us. Your tutor is always available to answer your questions, address any challenges and offer you feedback whenever you need it.

Pursuing your career

An A-Level in Chemistry can allow you to go on to study Chemistry or related Sciences at university. However, your desired university will have entry requirements so be sure to check the grade required in this and associated subjects.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

You will be unable to book your exam until all outstanding course fees are settled in full, this includes any associated charges deemed to be payable as per your initial contract.

All courses funded via our partner Premium Credit Limited, will need to be settled with them directly.
