GCSE Chemistry studies the composition, properties and reactions of matter, particularly at the levels of atoms and molecules. It is an ideal preparation for A-Level Chemistry or a Level 3 Science course. It is often studied in combination with GCSE Biology and GCSE Physics.
This is the linear 9-1 GCSE qualification. A linear qualification means that students must sit all their exams at the end of the course in June. The qualification can be taken at either Foundation Tier or Higher Tier. The lessons will involve a mixture of classroom based lectures and practical lessons in our specialist science laboratories. Students will study the following topics
- Atomic structure and the periodic table
- Bonding, structure, and the properties of matter
- Quantitative chemistry
- Chemical changes
- Energy changes
- The rate and extent of chemical change
- Organic chemistry
- Chemical analysis
- Chemistry of the atmosphere
- Using resources
The course is assessed by two written exams, each worth 50% of the final marks. The exam questions will be a mixture of multiple choice: structured; closed short answer and open response questions. On completion students progress to A-Level Chemistry or a Level 3 vocational qualification in science.
Suitability - Who should attend?
Students need to have four GCSEs at grade D / 3 to include GCSE Science.
