Overview

A-Level chemistry builds on the work students do at GCSE, extending and deepening their knowledge of chemistry. Taught by expert teachers, students will develop a broad understanding of a range of topics across both organic and inorganic chemistry

Practical work is at the heart of all good science teaching, and the required practical activities will give students the opportunity to embed their skills and knowledge. This course prepares students for further university study and is a gateway to a degree in any scientific or mathematical field. A-Level Chemistry is a requirement to enter most medical schools.
