      At Cambridge Online Education you will learn CHEMISTRY from accessing LIVE online lessons taught by a PhD / PGCE qualified experienced teacher. The teacher will guide you through the Cambridge endorsed textbook step by step in a friendly and accessible manner. Having a teacher explain the textbook is undoubtedly an advantage over other home study courses where students are expected to make sense of often difficult material on their own.

      To take into account

      · What are the objectives of this course?

      The teacher's LIVE lessons, lesson recordings in this course, the Cambridge textbook and Learner Guide specifically prepare students for success in the following 3 assessment papers: Paper 2: Multiple choice paper. 45 minutes (30% of total available marks), Paper 4: Extended theory paper. 1 hour and 15 minutes (50%), Paper 6: Alternative to Practical paper which will test your familiarity with practical procedures which you will learn during the course. 1 hour (20%). This course will fully prepare students for the Extended paper which will enable them to achieve any grade up to and including A*. Science is usually taught as a hands-on practical subject. Students will be encouraged to think scientifically in an everyday context, making them aware of the science around them and how it can help in solving practical problems. The number of practical experiments will be relatively restricted owing to the nature of the course (online versus conventional), but we will try to include as many practical demonstrations as possible in recorded lessons using safe household materials. Homestudy students are not advised to perform practical experiments unsupervised. Students under 18 years old MUST be supervised by a responsible adult. While practical experimentation will undoubtedly enhance a student's experience, knowledge and understanding of the subject it is not necessary to the final I GCSE grade to perform practical experiments at home. Students have the option of sitting either a practical test (Paper 5) or an alternative to practical test - written paper (Paper 6). You should make very clear which of these tests you wish to take when confirming your examination place at your chosen examination centre.
