Chemistry A Level at The John Bentley School

Course description

If you want to know what makes up the world around you, you are a natural chemist. You are the stuff that stars are made of. Chemistry is the study of all chemical substances and how to change one chemical into another. The food you eat, the air you breathe, your own body, your mobile phone, the plants and streets around you are made of chemicals. As you want inexpensive products, chemistry helps to decrease economic costs, and as you want a safe environment, chemistry helps to decrease pollution by detecting the toxins, and by destroying them.

Do you take pleasure in working out difficult ideas? Do you enjoy logic problems, learning ideas that ‘click’ beautifully together? Then you would enjoy Chemistry. We want students who are prepared to work hard in and out of class, as Chemistry can be as challenging as it is rewarding.

If you study A level Chemistry then you should be able to ask ‘Why?’ and get a good answer. You will find AS Chemistry explains chemical ideas mostly using words, while A2 Chemistry explains chemical ideas using Maths, while broadening the topics studied.

Entry requirements

At least 2 B grades in Science (Double or Triple award and must include Chemistry) , B in Maths and ideally a B in English.
