Chemistry

Key Stage 5

AS Chemistry and A-level Chemistry are now de-coupled. That means they are stand-alone qualifications from September 2015 teaching. The first new AS examinations were in June 2016 and the new (full) A-level examinations are in June 2017.
None of the marks obtained for the AS qualification are carried forward for the A-level qualification. This means that the new A-level will examine the full course after two years of learning.

Practical Skills
These are assessed by the teacher during lessons. If a student passes it will be reported on the certificate. Otherwise not. Practical questions also appear on the written examinations. We do lots of practical work.
