Chemistry helps us understand the world in which we live, and studying it will help you to develop research, problem solving, and analytical skills.

Completing this A Level will open doors to many career prospects, including pharmacy, chemical engineering, biomedical sciences and medicine.

Studying this course means that you will also be part of our Sixth Form Career Excellence Hub, which is endorsed by leading employers, who are actively involved throughout your whole training programme.

What does the course involve?

You will study the principles of chemistry and how it relates to real life. You will also develop your practical skills using your second year to build on the foundations created during year one. Practical sessions include the synthesis of common compounds such as aspirin.

The programme is made up of the following modules: foundations in chemistry, periodic table and energy, core organic chemistry, physical chemistry and transition elements, and organic chemistry and analysis.

How will the course be assessed?

You will sit exams in your second year. You will also receive a pass or fail grade for skills developed in practical work.

What future study opportunities and careers are there?
