Course programme

What you will Study The course consists of topics covering four of the main branches: organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry which you study over two years. The first year expands on base knowledge from GCSE level such as kinetics and bonding whilst introducing new concepts such as detailing the exact mechanisms of reactions that take place on the molecular level. The second year begins to look at the question of why reactions only happen under certain conditions by introducing thermodynamics, the properties of transition metals and further reactions involving many more organic functional groups. Chemistry at A level is a very concise science with a fair amount of mathematical content and is a large step up from GCSE as the emphasis is much more on understanding and being able to answer the question 'why?' rather than simple recall.

How you will Learn You will have 2 classes per week (3hr and 2hr session) to cover the theory with various activities taking place within that time such as practicals, lectures with regular Q&A, peer tutoring using white boards and quiz games. Throughout the course your level of attainment will be gauged by regular tests and homework assignments. Mock exams will take place at the halfway and pre-exam points to give an overall reflection of your progress as a whole whilst the main graded exams will be at the end of the course.
