Chemistry A Level at Finchley Catholic High School

Course description

This course will develop your understanding of many different aspects of contemporary chemistry such as climate change, green chemistry and pharmaceuticals, and research will be conducted on many topical issues affecting our daily lives. Students will need practical and analytical skills, and their exams will test a mix of laboratory and written work.

Course content

This course will suit students who enjoyed the Chemistry components at GCSE and wish to take a more in depth view of the subject. However, Chemistry at A Level is a much more rigorous course and will require students to be confident in their Maths.

Future opportunities

University courses in Medicine and Veterinary Science, and almost all other science courses, require A Level Chemistry. As Chemistry will help enhance analytical skills, many other courses such as Accountancy or Law also find it useful, and it is a foundation for a wide variety of careers
