The first unit, Atoms, Bonds and Groups introduces the further study of inorganic Chemistry, metals, non-metals and the bonding and structure of substances. The second unit deals with the Chemistry of carbon compounds and energy changes associated with their use as a fuel; the effect of their use in this way on the environment is also studied. The third unit is a practical assessment derived from a variety of experimental tasks. The first unit studied in Year 13 extends the studies of carbon compounds and includes industrial analytical techniques. Polymers and their synthesis are included here. The second unit considers reactions and the energy changes associated with them. The third unit is a series of practical assessments derived from a variety of experimental tasks.
Ideally, students will have gained grade A in GCSE chemistry or combined science; however, each applicant is considered on his or her merits. An interest in the subject and a willingness to work hard are essential.
