Chemistry A Level at Weald of Kent Grammar School
This course offers a flexible approach where the specification is divided into modules each covering key areas. Teaching of practical skills is integrated with the theoretical topics and both are examined through written papers. There is no coursework
Module 1 – Development of practical skills
Module 2 – Foundations of chemistry e.g. atoms, amount, redox and structure & bonding
Module 3 – Periodic Table and energy
Module 4 - Core organic chemistry e.g. hydrocarbons, isomerism and infra-red spectroscopy
Module 5 – Physical chemistry and transition elements
Module 6 - Organic chemistry and analysis, e.g. carbonyls and nuclear magnetic resonance
Grade 6 in Chemistry GCSE or at least a Grade 6 in each of the Science GCSEs if taking Trilogy science. Also at least a Grade 6 in Mathematics is required.
It is highly recommended that students who wish to take Chemistry at A Level are also taking Mathematics at A Level. For those not taking Mathematics, whose mathematical skills require improvement, attendance at additional Mathematics for Scientists sessions will be compulsory.
