Chemistry AQA AS Level (Linear) at Poynton High School
You will be expected to engage in six hours of reading and written work outside lessons per week and to read texts to improve your understanding of each topic and to make your own notes where necessary. Your basic mathematics needs to be good, and an ability to take responsibility for your own learning is essential. You will be asked to think and reason in a logical manner. A positive commitment is essential and Chemistry should be chosen because you are interested in the subject and determined to do well. Students who have achieved the greatest success are those who have been most involved from the start and so inevitably obtained the most enjoyment.
