A Level Chemistry at North Oxfordshire Academy

Course description

Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue? Well, A -level chemistry will lead you to the answer! Chemistry is all around us and is absolutely fundamental to all we do. It will make you think, question and at times really challenge you, but then we love a challenge at NOA! A Level Chemistry is essential for certain career paths (such as forensic and veterinary science, medicine, nursing, physiotherapy and dentistry) but is also a valuable support subject for students studying Biology and can provide support for aspects of Physics and Geography.
