Chemistry A Level at Brompton Academy

Course description

The A level is studied over two years.  The specification has been developed with teachers and representatives from Higher education with the aim of including up-to-date relevant content within a framework that is interesting to teach and administer within all centres. The course is divided into six chemical topics, each containing different key concepts of chemistry. Once the key features of a topic have been developed, applications are considered to ensure it provides the skills necessary to progress into industry or degree level study.

Entry requirements

Students need to have achieved 5 A* - C GCSE to include B grade in GCSE Science and GCSE Chemistry or Additional Science, Grade 6 in English and Maths.


Grade A* – E awarded. The A level course is assessed by three external examinations. The first, Periodic table, elements and physical chemistry is worth 37% and the second, Synthesis and analytical techniques, is also worth 37%. The final 26% is awarded for the third examination, Unified Chemistry.  A “Practical endorsement in Chemistry” is assessed internally but is reported separately from the A-Level grade.
