You are expected to have a knowledge of chemistry up to a good GCSE standard.
This means a grade B or above in 2017 and earlier or Grade 5 and above in 2018 or later. In either case, it is expected that the student took the higher tier.
If you have other relevant qualifications or experience which you feel would allow you to study an A-level chemistry course, please contact us.
Examining board and exams
The Chemistry A level course has been developed to prepare you for the AQA Chemistry A-level qualification. The specification number is:
A-level – 7405
The A-level will be assessed as follows:
|Paper||Paper 1||Paper 2||Paper 3|
|What is being assessed||Physical Chemistry – Sections 3.1.1-3.1.4, 3.1.6-3.1.8, 3.1.10-3.1.12||Physical Chemistry – Sections 3.1.2-3.1.6, 3.1.9||Any content|
|Inorganic Chemistry – Section 3.2||Organic Chemistry – Section 3.3|
|Percentage of grade||35%||35%||30%|
|Length of paper||2 hours||2 hours||2 hours|
|Marks||105: short/long responses||105: short/long responses||90: 40 marks – practical techniques and data analysis; 20 marks – testing whole specification; 30 marks – multiple choice questions|
Please note that the AS course may be separately examined and marks from the AS exam are no longer carried forward to the final A level grade. However, it is useful for students to have examination practice, and to assess the progress of their learning and ability.
