A-Level Chemistry Course

Our comprehensive online A-Level Chemistry course follows the AQA specification (7405) in one or two academic years.

Please Note: The one year course is a very intensive programme – to fast track your tuition and opportunity for success.

Three written examination papers taken at the end of the course.

Paper 1 – Inorganic and Physical Chemistry – 2 hours – 105 marks

Paper 2 – Organic and Physical Chemistry – 2 hours – 105 marks

Paper 3 – Chemistry – 2 hours – 90 marks

The A-level qualification will be graded on a six-point scale: A*, A, B, C, D and E – where A* is the highest attainable grade. Students who fail to reach the minimum standard for grade E will be recorded as U (unclassified) and will not receive a qualification certificate.

All students are expected to carry out 12 required practical activities during the course. A-level grades will be based only on marks from written exams.

A separate endorsement of practical skills will be taken alongside the A-level. This will be assessed by teachers and will be based on direct observation of students’ competency in a range of skills that are not assessable in written exams.

Required practicals will be outsourced to a college local to the student and confirmed during the course. Assessment centres (local to each student) will also be confirmed during the course.

The course is taught over one or two academic years (starting September 2020), split into 3 or 6 terms respectively.

Online classes are 2 hours per session. High level, fast track tuition is provided using proven methods. See the Courses Timetable for more information.
