- Physical chemistry (atom structure, bonding, energetics, energetics, Redox equations, thermodynamics, electrode potential, acids & bases, etc…)
- Inorganic chemistry (periodicity, groups 2 & 7, transition metals, reactions of ions in aqueous solutions, etc…)
- Organic chemistry (alkanes, halogenoalkanes, alkenes, alcohols, organic analysis, optical isomerism, aldehydes & ketones, aromatic chemistry, polymers, amino acids & DNA, chromatography, organic synthesis, etc…)
The course includes a lot of practical techniques you will learn to master and be examined for in the end of year exams.
Students will require a minimum of five A*-C/9-4 grades at GCSE, including English
Language and Maths at grade 6 or above and Science at grade 7. Studying A level Maths
alongside Chemistry is a big advantage
Studying Chemistry could lead to many scientific careers such as research scientist, medicine, water treatment, teaching, pharmacist, research new drugs & clinical trials …..
