Chemistry A Level-LEA at Invictus Sixth Form
A level Chemistry will give an exciting insight into the world in which we live. It is a highly respected course due to its high academic challenge and it provides the fundamentals on which a wide range of science degree courses are built.
Many key concepts are included and practical skills are integrated throughout the course which supports pupils in developing their passion for the subject.
Content is split into six teaching modules:
Module 1 – Development of practical skills in chemistry
Module 2 – Foundations in chemistry
Module 3 – Periodic table and energy
Module 4 – Core organic chemistry
Module 5 – Physical chemistry and transition elements
Module 6 – Organic chemistry and analysis
Specific Entry Requirements:
6+ Grade in Mathematics
6+ Grade in the Chemistry component of GCSE Science
6+ Grade overall in GCSE Science
5 9-5 Grades at GCSE
Assessment (explain how students will be assessed, e.g exam % coursework % etc)
A-Level – 100% exam
Paper 1: Periodic table, elements and physical chemistry (2hr 15 mins 37%)
Paper 2: Synthesis and analytical techniques (2hr 15 mins 37%)
Paper 3: Unified Chemistry (1hr 30 mins 26%)
Each module has a set of Pupil Assessment Groups (PAGs), which are the set practical assessments. The practical endorsement for Chemistry is separate from the exam on which pupils will achieve a ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ for their practical skills
Chemistry is a key subject for a range of careers which include: Medicine, Dentistry, Forensic science, Pharmacy, Engineering and Veterinary science. Chemistry is often requested alongside Biology, Physics or Maths by universities for their science based degrees. Chemistry is also taken by law applicants as it shows the ability to analyse problems and develop concepts.
