Chemistry A Level at Teesdale School

Course description

A-level Chemistry is a modular course consisting of six modules spaced out over two years. A lot of the areas covered in A-level Chemistry are familiar to those you would have studied at GCSE, however there are several new topics you will encounter whilst on the course.

If you wanted to go into a career in any form of medicine including doctor or veterinarian then you will find A-level Chemistry compulsory, however there are many subjects and careers where this is the case, as well as there being many options where an A-level Chemistry qualification is desirable. Having an A-level in Chemistry is a very advantageous trait and is a highly valued qualification to have in academic circles.
