Course Description

Chemistry A Level - Standard or Fast Track

This is the ideal course to study if you want to gain entry into University within 12 months. There are a wide range of A-Levels where we guarantee to make the marking of your work a priority (using our fast-track service).

An Advanced Level in Chemistry is a suitable programme for individuals who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of this topic, in order to progress on to higher education at university.  

It can also allow learners to pursuit further training in this field whist in employment. The specification of this course will enable students to gain data analysis skills as well as understand how science works and also its relevance beyond the laboratory.

 Please Note:

Due to legislation changes in some A Level specifications, the last opportunity to you will have to sit the exam on this course is June 2016.

We will be updating our A Level courses, to meet with the new specification in due course. Once these courses are released the first opportunity you will have to complete these exams will be June 2017.

For more information please don’t hesitate to contact one of our course advisors. 

Students will study six units:

AS Level 

Unit 1: CHEM1 – Foundation Chemistry Examination paper 1: 1 hour 15 minutes

Unit 2 CHEM2 – Chemistry in Action Examination paper: 1 hour 45 minutes

Unit 3 CHEM 3 – Internal Assessment – Investigative and practical skills. A practical skills assessment conducted at an examination centre

 

A2 Level 

Unit 4: CHEM4 – Kinetics, Equilibria, and Organic Chemistry Examination paper: 1 hour 45 minutes

Unit 5: CHEM5 – Energetics, Redox and Inorganic Chemistry Examination paper: 1 hour 45 minutes

Unit 6: CHEM6 – Internal Assessment – Investigative and practical skills. A practical assessment conducted at an examination centre.

 

Course content AS Level

Unit 1 CHEM1 – Foundation Chemistry Topics 1.1 – Atomic Structure 1.2 – Amount of Substance 1.3 – Bonding 1.4 – Periodicity 1.5 – Introduction to Organic Chemistry 1.6 Alkanes

Unit 2 CHEM2 – Chemistry in Action Topics 2.1 – Energetics 2.2 – Kinetics 2.3 – Equilibria 2.4 – Redox Reaction 2.5 - Group 7, the Halogens 2.6 – Group 2, the Alkaline Earth Metals 2.7 – Extraction of Metal 2.8 – Halo alkanes 2.9 – Alkenes 2.10 – Alcohols 2.11 – Analytical Techniques

Unit 3 – Investigate and Practical Skills Topics in the course of their experimental work. Students should learn how to demonstrate and describe ethical, safe and skilful practical techniques. Students will process and select appropriate qualitative and quantitative techniques.

You will be required to make, record and communicate observations that are both reliable and valid. Not only this, you will make measures with precision and accuracy. You will also analyse, interpret and evaluate the methodology, the results and their influence on other experimental activities in a range of ways.

Please note: you will need to contact your examination centre to discuss the practical work and the different paths you will take. Your tutor will have no involvement at this stage. 

Unit 4 – CHEM4 – Kinetics, Equilibria and Organic Chemistry Topics 4.1 – Kinetics 4.2 – Equilibria 4.3 Acids and Bases 4.4 – Nomenclature and Isomerism in Organic Chemistry 4.5 – Compounds Containing the Carbonyl Group 4.6 – Aromatic Chemistry 4.7 – Amines 4.8 – Acids 4.9 Polymers 4.10 Organic Synthesis and Analysis 4.11 – Structure Determination 

Unit 5 – CHEM5 – Energetics, Redox and Inorganic Chemistry Topics 5.1 – Thermodynamics 5.2 – Periodicity 5.3 – Redox Equilibria 5.4 – Transition Metals 5.5 – Reactions of Inorganic Compounds in Aqueous Solutions

Unit 6 - Investigative and Practical Skills in A2 Biology Topics. In the course of their experimental work, candidates should learn to: demonstrate and describe ethical, safe, skilful, and practical technical methods.

This section will allow students to select and process qualitative and quantitative methods, record and communicate valid observations, as well as make measurements with appropriate precision and accuracy. 

Learners will have the opportunity to explain, analyse and evaluate the methodology, the results and impact of their own and others’ experimental and investigate activities in a range of ways. Please note that you will need to contact your examination centre to discuss the practical work and the route you may take. Your tutor will have no involvement in this stage. 

Students will need to gain an understanding of How Science Works, which is a set of concepts and models which enable students to understand how scientists investigate scientific phenomena to explain to world around us. How Science Works recognises the contribution that scientists have made to their own disciplines and the world.

AS+A2 = A Level in Chemistry. In order to gain the full A Level, students must successfully complete both AS and A2 level courses. AS certificate 1420.
