A Level Chemistry is a valuable subject for students preparing for a range of higher education courses and future careers, as well as being essential for those entering the scientific, engineering, geological, medical and pharmaceutical professions. Due to the logical thought required to study chemistry, many chemists go into accountancy and patent law.
Chemistry is essentially an experimental subject and so the A Level course is firmly based on practical work which is closely integrated with theory. The place of chemistry in modern society is emphasised and the technological applications of chemistry are considered throughout the course. We aim to cultivate the ability to reason clearly; to discuss and to communicate ideas, facts and principles; and to solve problems. A Level Chemistry provides a rigorous treatment of chemistry that will stimulate and challenge a wide range of students. It lays the foundations for future studies, yet provides a satisfying course for those who will take their study of chemistry no further.
