Assessments

Students will be required to arrange and pay for their examinations/practicals at an AQA approved centre. We can provide an extensive list of these centres for you.

A Level Exams
There are three exams for the full A Level qualification. The length of each exam is two hours long.

Paper 1 Paper 1 Paper 1 A Level Qualification

AS Level Exams
There are two exams for the AS Level qualification. The length of each exam is 1 hour 30 minutes long.

Paper 1 Paper 1 AS Level Exams

This A’ Level Chemistry course forms part of the linear qualifications. This means that learners will sit exams for their particular qualification at the end of the completed course in the June series.

You will not be able to carry forward your AS qualification to the A’ Level qualification as they are now classed as entirely independent qualifications and you will sit either AS or A’ Level exams.

Practical Assessment
Assessment of practical skills in the AS specification will be by written exams only. Therefore the practical endorsement does not apply to the AS specification. At least 15% of the marks for the AS Chemistry qualification will require the assessment of practical skills through written exams only.

For the Full A Level, practical assessments have been divided into those that can be assessed in written exams and those that can only be directly assessed whilst learners are carrying out experiments.

A-level grades will be based only on marks from written exams. A separate endorsement of practical skills can be taken alongside the A-level.

FAQs

You can enrol online right now by Card or PayPal (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express). Alternatively, we also accept BACS transfer or we can send you a payment link.

Your A Level course will be online.  You will access it via our online portal.  

With our courses, we have learners from all over the world enrolled.  Therefore, if we restricted your learning to certain times, not everyone would be available.  All our courses are accessible 24/7 via our online secure portal.  Any videos on your portal would be pre-recorded meaning you can work through your course at your own pace.

By opting for our International A Level, you can study the course from anywhere and exam centres are located all over the world.  With our UK A Levels (AQA), you can study them from outside of the UK, however you would need to sit the actual exams for these within the UK.

You will be provided with eBooks for this course. If you want to purchase physical books in addition, then we can provide you with the book ISBN numbers.

The Guided learning hours for A Levels are as follows:-

AS Level: 180 hours

A Level:  360 hours

These figures are for guidance only. The number of hours needed to gain the qualification may vary depending on your previous experience of the subject.

Yes you will gain UCAS points and these depend on your final grade once you have completed your exams. 

If you are referring to A Levels at college then yes!

You will sit the same exam as thousands of students across the world in an exam centre, and achieve the same qualification as everyone else.

Provided you have completed enough work on the course within a reasonable amount of time, we will be able to provide a predicted grade / reference for university. 

Please provide at least 3 months notice for this, otherwise this will incur a small fee.

We want exams to be as competitively priced for our learners as possible and therefore that is why we direct them to the examination centres rather than charge upfront fees.

Chemistry is a science that covers properties and structures of substances, examining the changes that occur when specific processes are carried out. Many people are unaware that we use chemistry many times a day, such as when you cook and mix ingredients together or dilute concentrated juices.

When asking what job, I could do involving chemistry, you may find that your first answer is to become a chemist, which is the one most people associate with the subject. However, you may be surprised to learn that there are many careers that involve chemistry, such as Forensic Scientist, where your analysis of samples of hair, glass, paint and drugs could solve a crime and bring criminals to justice.

For many years crimes have remained unsolved due to a limited DNA database but with this database growing year on year, crimes from say the 1960s are now reaching a conclusion and this is thanks to the careful collation of samples collected at crime scenes many years ago.

If you love research and have an inquisitive mind, then A Level Chemistry may be the course for you.  Many students who study this subject also undertake A Level Biology and A Level Mathematics, which gives you a broad spectrum of studies, which can take you in any direction, whether it be medical, environmental or the law route.

You may be the next person to achieve a Nobel Prize in Chemistry for your research skills in developing a fourth type of catalyst in chemical reactions as Benjamin List, of the Max Planck Institute for Coal Research, and David MacMillan, of Princeton University did in 2000.

The opportunities are endless.
