Chemistry is a challenging and rewarding subject that gives you a deep understanding of the structure of materials and the way they interact with each other. Studying chemistry develops your ability to think logically, to solve problems and to analyse data. You will also learn how to plan and conduct complex practical investigations.


Paper 1 (Advanced Inorganic and Physical Chemistry):
Atomic Structure and the Periodic Table, Bonding and Structure, Redox I & II, Inorganic Chemistry and the Periodic Table, Formulae, Equations and Amounts of Substance, Energetics I & II, Equilibrium I & II, Acid-base Equilibria, Transition Metals. 

Paper 2 (Advanced Organic and Physical Chemistry):
Bonding and Structure, Redox I, Formulae, Equations and Amounts of Substance, Organic Chemistry I, II & III, Modern Analytical Techniques I & II, Kinetics I & II.

Paper 3 (General and Practical Principles in Chemistry):
Synoptic paper covering any of the course content with an emphasis on the experimental methods used to investigate these topics. (indirect practical skills).
