Course Information

This A' Level Chemistry Course will attempt to answer the question 'what is the world made of' and it's the search for this answer that makes the subject so interesting. From investigating how one substance can be changed drastically into another, to researching a new wonder drug to save millions of lives, the opportunities that chemistry provide are endless.

The course is also ideal for anyone wishing to study at a higher level at University and gain UCAS points, Plus it opens the door to a fantastic range of interesting careers.

This course is designed to build naturally on GCSE understanding with minimal duplication of content.

Previous Knowledge Required

There are no previous entry requirements for this course, however students are expected to have a reasonable standard of literacy. You have the freedom to start the course at any time and continue your studies at your own pace for a period of up to 24 months from initial registration with the full support of your Tutor.

Assessment

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 qualificaiton. The length of each exam is two hours long.

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

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. More information is on this in our FAQs below.

Before you start your tutor will contact you to welcome you and, if you’re new to Learn Now, help you understand what study will be like. They’ll also clarify how and when they can be contacted, and how quickly they will respond to you.

Once you’ve started your tutor will mark and provide feedback on your assignments and support your progress throughout the course.


Practical assessments have been divided into those that can be assessed in written exams and those that can only be directly assessed whilst students are carrying out experiments.

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. N.B. The practical skills are separate to the overall A’ Level grade. So, if students do not gain the practical endorsement, they can still receive the A’ Level qualification at the end of the two years.

However, a number of Universities have already stated: if a student is going on to do a Science based degree, they would expect students to have a pass in the practical endorsement. You should check with the relevant University what their exact requirements are.

With our A Level courses you receive support and access for up to two years. You can however complete the course much sooner if you wish to. You will need to check the exam dates for your A Level subject and the number of guided learning hours to ensure that you can achieve your goals.
