Course description

A-Level Chemistry

Studying chemistry is a great introduction to all science and provides a powerful understanding of how the world is made up. Chemistry is literally the study of matter, how it changes, its composition as well as its structure and properties.

Chemistry explores the fundamental building blocks of life. This course will explore physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and organic chemistry.

You will study subjects like atomic structure, kinetics, periodicity, organic analysis and chromatography. Studying chemistry prepares you for further education, particularly if you want to work in medicine or become a scientist.

During this A-Level Chemistry course you will explore bonding, energetics, kinetics, thermodynamics, the periodic table, amino acids, proteins DNA and organic synthesis.
