Course description

From investigating how one substance can be changed drastically into another to researching a new wonder drug to save millions of lives, the opportunities that chemistry provides are endless.

Entry requirements

There is no coursework on this course. However, your performance during practicals will be assessed. There are three exams at the end of the two years for A Level, all of which are two hours long.

At least 15% of the marks for A Level Chemistry are based on what you learn in your practicals. The AS Level has two exams at the end of the year, both are 90 minutes long
