Chemistry studies matter in all their forms. If you are interested in learning the structures and properties of all the different elements that make up the things around us then this course is for you. When it comes to all the different kinds of sciences, chemistry is probably the most dynamic of them. A Level Chemistry can make for a fascinating subject and help you learn more about the chemical reactions that are a very basic part of all sciences.
If you wish to study A Level Chemistry in a distance learning setting with us, it is important that you have a GCSE-level ability to read and write English. This course provides an understanding of the subject that will enable you to continue pursuing it at university level. Therefore, you must be over 16 years of age and possess some mathematical knowledge as well as arithmetic and computational skills.
As a suitable candidate for the Chemistry course, you should also be familiar with algebra, graphs, geometry and have working knowledge of how to handle data.
A Level Chemistry is a two- part course, AS and A2. It is important for students to complete both parts in order to achieve a full A Level certification along with the UCAS points.
The complete A Level course takes a two-pronged approach to teach students. First is the concept-led approach. This includes a study of the laws, throes and models as well as their practical application in real life. The other, context-led approach reflects on the functional applications of chemical knowledge and also teaches the supporting concepts. Your tutors will offer both approaches while providing flexibility and continuous support.
The two-pronged approach ensures that you have a thorough understanding of the concepts and instill confidence regarding the application of chemistry ideas in a modern context.
As an A Level Chemistry student you will also be required to complete a practical element in the coursework. The practical skills assessment is a timetabled examination in a laboratory setting.
You will have complete tutor support for 2 years from the date of registration. This is ample time to finish your coursework and prepare for the exams. Your tutors will provide you with important online resources to help you gain a better understanding of Chemistry.
You will also be provided complete courseware and advised about the best subject-related books and notes. Your tutor will not only guide you through project planning but also offer direction about the right topics and ideas.
