Chemistry A level at Tolworth Sixth Form
Chemistry is the study of how elements and compounds behave in the world around us. It attempts to answer questions about why things happen, what is happening to our environment and if we can save the planet. Some of the concepts that we explore in Year 12 build on GCSE knowledge and include atomic structure; chemical bonding; the Periodic Table; quantitative analysis; organic chemistry and energy. You will also carry out many experiments, where you will learn new techniques and refine your practical skills . Chemistry is a subject that is essential to many careers such as medicine, pharmacy, biomedical sciences and veterinary science but is also a useful qualification that shows you can think and solve problems.
Candidates will be expected to have gained 5 GCSE grades A * - C including at least BB in Double science or two Science subjects (including Chemistry) and a 5 in Mathematics.
