We offer two courses for students that have completed their GCSE studies and intend on choosing chemistry at A Level. We have used our own experiences of students studying the new A Level syllabi to build our workshops, and they give students the opportunity to master the vital key skills that underpin the topics they will cover.
Next date: Summer 2017
The new A Level syllabi for chemistry have placed increased demands on students in terms of the key skills that underpin the content covered. The final examinations contain 20% higher level maths, and many of the topics covered over the two years develop content that was introduced at GCSE. This course provides an opportunity for students to master the key skills, and allows them to practise using these skills in context. This course is a great way for students to refresh their knowledge and ensure they are fully prepared for the challenge of A Level chemistry.
Students that have studied triple science at GCSE have been introduced to some of the key concepts underpinning quantitative chemistry, giving them a distinct advantage when these topics are revisited and developed at A Level. This workshop gives combined science students the opportunity to be introduced to some of the more challenging of these concepts, and provides resources for them to develop their knowledge and understanding prior to embarking upon their A Level studies.
