Chemistry A Level at The Campion School

Course description

Chemistry at A-level is the OCR Salters’ A-level Chemistry course revised for 2008 which is allocated five lessons a week for the two year period. It is a modular course with written examinations taken in the Summer of the Lower Sixth and also in the Summer of the Upper Sixth. There is also an assessment of experimental skills during the Lower Sixth. Further experimental work is assessed during the Autumn term of the Upper Sixth when an individual investigation is carried out. The Salters’ Chemistry course offers units that can lead to either an Advanced Subsidiary (AS) qualification at the end of the Lower Sixth, or by taking additional units in the A2 course, a full A-level qualification at the end of the Upper Sixth.

Entry requirements

Salters’ Advanced level Chemistry is rewarding but requires determination and commitment. Candidates require a good grade in Mathematics and a minimum grade of a B (or equivalent) in Chemistry or AB in Core and Additional Science, for entry to the course.

Future opportunities

A-level Chemistry fits in with most subjects, with other science subjects and/or mathematics; it is essential for those who wish to study Medicine, Veterinary Science, Dentistry and Chemical Engineering. Hospitals require the study of chemistry for pathology, pharmocology and clinical biochemistry.
