A Level Chemistry Overview

Within the chemistry A Level you will explore bonding, energetics, kinetics, thermodynamics, the periodic table, amino acids, proteins DNA and organic synthesis.

Upon successful completion of the exam and practical assessments (as administered by AQA) you will have achieved an internationally recognised AQA A-Level Chemistry.

A Level Chemistry outline

This A Level is divided into 3 units:

Unit 1: Relevant physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, relevant practical skills.

Written examination: 2 hours. 35% of A Level. 105 Marks (A mixture of short and long answer questions)

Unit 2: Relevant physical chemistry, organic chemistry, relevant practical skills.

Written examination: 2 hours. 35% of A Level. 105 Marks (A mixture of short and long answer questions)

Unit 3: Any content, relevant practical skills.

Written examination: 2 hours. 30% of A Level. 90 Marks (40 marks = questions on practical techniques and data analysis, 20 marks = questions testing across specification, 30 marks = multiple choice questions)

Practical Assessment

Your A-Level grade will be based on written examinations. However, to pass you must undergo an assessment of practical skills. These are:

  • Make up a volumetric solution and carry out a simple acid–base titration
  • Measurement of an enthalpy change
  • Investigation of how the rate of a reaction changes with temperature
  • Carry out simple test-tube reactions to identify:
    *cations – Group 2, NH4+
    *anions – Group 7 (halide ions), OH–, CO3 2–, SO4 2–
  • Distillation of a product from a reaction
  • Tests for alcohol, aldehyde, alkene and carboxylic acid

Assessment

The AQA A-Level Chemistry qualification is gained once all 3 exam papers are successfully completed and if you elect to, have completed the practical assessments.

These exams are administered by AQA. As a private candidate you will sit your exams in an exam centre such as a school, college or private tuition centre.

Use the map below there are a huge number of places where you can sit your exams.

In addition, if you select the added tutor support there will be a number of tutor marked assessments (TMAs) to ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the content, with the tutor sending comments to guide you through any areas of potential difficulty. This will ensure you are prepared for the final exams.

All e-books contain a range of self-assessments that are indicators that you understand the materials as you work through them. These are for your own information.

Method of study

Online and Paper Based

You can also choose to have a paper version of the E-book sent to you.

The content is all online and accessed via our Learning Management System (LMS).

The online e-book has many features that cannot be printed such as embedded videos, forums and interactive tests.

With the tutor support option there are Tutor Marked Assessments which you access and submit through the online system.

Tutor support

We highly recommend the additional tutor option to support our A Level e-books. For just £35 you will receive tutor feedback and support by email for 24 months. They will mark your TMAs and provide valuable guidance through any trickier parts of the content whenever you need it. You will also receive a study guide to help you with all aspects of studying, essay writing and general student skills.

How quickly can I complete the A Level?

You can complete your A Level as quickly or slowly within the two years as you choose. The recommended study time for the content is 360 hours. The exam dates are set by the exam boards and for A Level Chemistry are available in May/June each year. This gives you two opportunities to sit the exams over the two years.
