A-levels are tests students in the UK take to gain entrance into university. Each test covers a different subject, and a student’s score can help him or her choose an area for advanced study.
Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it seems to unify the other branches of natural science together, including biology, geology, and physics. Many believe the origins of chemistry to be traced back several thousands of years, to the practice of alchemy.

This course covers the brand new spec introduced in September 2015. Chemistry is concerned with the science of matter, particularly its structure, properties and reactions. Chemistry is of central importance to the sciences as a whole as the chemical reactions that it governs are fundamental to all of science. This A Level chemistry course contains all the information you will need to pass the A-Level Chemistry exams. You will have a personal tutor for the entirety of this course, who will be more than happy to aid you in completing this course, and will be available to mark all the end of unit assessments.

What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This two year course is designed to provide a smooth transition from GCSE Core/Additional Science and GCSE Chemistry courses and to interface with the needs of Higher Education courses. It provides an appreciation and understanding of important chemical principles which are fundamental to the understanding of the world in which we live. The course also encourages students to come to understand how scientists investigate scientific phenomena in their attempts to explain the world around us. Students develop their practical skills to complement their understanding of chemical concepts. The study of chemistry is useful in understanding other areas of science....
If you enjoyed Chemistry at GCSE you will love this course. You will gain an appreciation of the nature and importance of modern chemical theories.
Examining Board: AQA
If you enjoyed Chemistry at GCSE, you would love this course. You will gain an appreciation of the nature and importance of modern chemical theories. Chemistry makes a major contribution to the needs of society. We will use a variety of teaching methods – lessons with interactive smart board, demonstrations, group work, presentations, workshops and research.
The new AQA linear A Level Chemistry course will be taught in 2015. This means that students will sit all of their exams at the end of the second year.
Here are some of the topics we cover:
Moles, bonding and periodicity
Thermodynamics and much more.
