Chemistry A-Level at Freman College

Course description

The aim of A-level Chemistry is to explain in greater detail, how and why reactions occur in the way that they do and so provide an insight into chemical applications such as the synthesis of new drugs. A-level Chemistry builds on areas of the GCSE Chemistry course.

Course content

The A-level syllabus covers the three major areas of chemistry:

Organic - Covering chemical families like the alcohols.

Inorganic - A detailed study of the Groups and Periods of the Periodic table.

Physical - Covering ideas about enthalpy (energy changes), reaction kinetics and equilibria.

The course involves a significant amount of practical work and practical assessments. A study of chemistry is useful for a whole range of career areas including pharmacy, food science, metallurgy, biology, patent work, environmental science, agriculture and engineering. It is essential for degrees in medicine.

Entry requirements
