Chemistry A-level (AQA) at The Duke of York's Royal Military School
The course develops an excellent understanding of concepts, how Chemistry is relevant to everyday life and embeds the strong practical skills required by those studying Sciences.
The AS course is based on the three disciplines within Chemistry: Physical, Organic and Inorganic. The subjects studied will include the foundations of atomic structure, quantitative chemistry, energetics, kinetics and organics. The full A Level course studies the topics as described at AS and then extends knowledge through topics including thermodynamics, rate expressions, transition metal chemistry and equilibria. New topics include a knowledge of how medicines are developed and can target DNA.
B from GCSE Additional Science or B from GCSE Chemistry in addition to a grade B in GCSE Maths.
Assessment is linear with three examinations being sat in year 13. All examinations are two hours; paper 1 Inorganic and Physical Chemistry is weighted at 35%, paper 2 Organic and Physical Chemistry is similarly weighted and paper 3 is a synoptic and practical skills paper weighted at 30%.
