Why Study Chemistry A-Level?

Do you like to conduct experiments and see what the outcome will be? If you've answered yes then Chemistry could be a great A-Level for you to study!

Chemists conduct experiments to study how elements work in different conditions, they test how they mix, and work out what they are made up of right down to the tiniest particle and use it to develop things like medicine and food. 


This two-year course covers the full range of organic, inorganic, and physical aspects of Chemistry: 

  • Physical Chemistry: you will study atomic structure, bonding, kinetics and thermodynamics, equilibria and homogeneous systems
  • Inorganic Chemistry: you will learn about periodicity and reactions of ions. You’ll also look at groups 2 and 7, period 3, and the transition metals in greater detail
  • Organic Chemistry: you will discover a range of different families of organic molecules, including aromatics, alcohols, and DNA. You’ll also develop an understanding of isomerism, mechanisms, and analytical techniques.
