Course content


Entry requirements

Minimum GCSE grade B (5/6) in Core Science and Grade B (5/6) in Additional Science. If three separate sciences have been studied, then a minimum grade B (5/6) in Chemistry is required plus a grade B (5/6) in either Physics or Biology. Mathematical competence and the ability to apply mathematics in Chemistry is very important, therefore a minimum of grade 6 in Mathematics is required.


There are three written papers. Paper 1 and 2 are 2 hr 15 mins long with the final Synoptic paper 1 hr 30 mins long. Students will also complete a series of Practical Endorsement activities which are non-examined but compulsory parts of the course.

Future opportunities

Chemistry A Level is a vital requirement for biological sciences, medicine and related courses. Chemistry is accepted by a great many university courses, some of which require a high level of numeracy, such as law and engineering.
