What do I need to study the course? To access this course you will need to have studied an Additional Science GCSE or Chemistry GCSE and ideally have B grades in Science GCSEs. Good literacy and mathematical skills are also essential, so we ask for at least a C grade in English Language and Mathematics. What does the course involve? The AQA Chemistry course is assessed by two external examinations at AS, or three at A2. The AS and A2 courses are standalone, as the AS course no longer counts towards the A level in Chemistry. The A-level chemistry course studies Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Inorganic Chemistry. There will be plenty of opportunity for practical tasks and investigations as well as in-depth study of new areas of Chemistry. The full specification can be downloaded by clicking here. What next? The course is suitable for anyone with an interest in Chemistry. Previous students have studied this course to help them access Chemistry related university courses, Biochemistry, Chemical Engineering, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, medicine and related medical courses.
