Chemistry A Level at Upton Hall F C J

Course description

A Level Chemistry is a rigorous, challenging and ultimately rewarding course that develops students' scientific skills and knowledge, built upon the knowledge gained at GCSE level. The course is broken down into Inorganic, Physical and Organic Chemistry. In Year 12 the foundations of each of these sections are taught and then they are developed in Year 13.

Entry requirements

To study Chemistry at A Level students must have achieved a minimum of grade B in Separate Science Chemistry or grade A in Additional Science at GCSE. There is a significant amount of mathematical content in the course so students should have also achieved a minimum of grade B in Mathematics at GCSE.

Future opportunities

During the summer of Year 12, A Level Chemistry students have the opportunity to take part in the Nuffield Research Placement in a University or centre of scientific research. A Level Chemistry is essential for degrees in medicine, veterinary science and dentistry and can open up a range of careers and higher education courses in optometry, physiotherapy, pharmaceutical sciences, forensic science, biomedical and biological sciences, environmental health and food sciences. A Level Chemistry can also help gain direct entry into employment, especially into the scientific and related sectors, with the transferable skills of problem solving and analysis
