Course Overview

This course covers the content for the AQA and Edexcel International Specifications in Chemistry. It is a one-year course and assumes that GCSE-level Chemistry has already been achieved. It can be a stand-alone qualification or can be taken as the first of two years of the PX Classroom A-Level Chemistry course.

At AS-Level, the assessment of practical skills is by written exams only. At A2-Level a separate practical endorsement can be taken. This is advisable if the student wishes to study science at university.

Course Method

Class notes are distributed in advance and are filled in during the class.

Homework is set from the current AQA Chemistry AS-Level student book which must be purchased in advance (2nd edition; ISBN 9780198351818). Homework is self-marked. Tests compiled from past exam papers are set on completion of each topic and are marked by the teacher.

Lessons are interactive, focusing on achieving excellent understanding of the content, developing good scientific methodology, and developing the critical and analytical thinking skills necessary for further study in Chemistry.

All practical work is taught by the use of videos. A video recording is made of each lesson (with only the teacher visible) and upon request it can be made temporarily available to a student who missed the lesson.

Course Details

Term 3 continues with Organic Chemistry and finishes with an introduction to Analytical Chemistry. This is a short term so that students may take the AS-Level exam if they wish. It is not necessary to take this exam if the intention is to continue to A2 level (via the PX Classroom for A-Level Chemistry).

Term 3 comprises 4 lessons (two per week for two weeks). Each lesson lasts 1hr 30 minutes.

This PX Classroom is held on Tuesdays at 2pm and Wednesdays at 11am (London time zone), starting from Tuesday, 29th April 2025. The last lesson is due to be on 7th May 2025.
