Chemistry at Merchant Taylors' Boys' School

Course description

Chemistry is a demanding yet rewarding A Level course, taught by four subject specialists in three purpose-built laboratories.

The Chemistry A Level course encompasses three elements:

Physical Chemistry (including Atomic Structure, Kinetics and Thermodynamics)
Inorganic Chemistry (Group Chemistry and Transition Metals)
Organic Chemistry (including Alkanes, Alkenes and Alcohols).

External assessment of practical tests, known as EMPAs, currently complements the modular assessments in January and June, but any effective performance at A Level will require reading and study beyond the specification and the department prides itself on successful stretch and challenge.

Entry requirements

We recommend that at least an A grade in GCSE Chemistry is needed in order to embark on A Level study
