Course Overview

This course covers the content for the AQA Specification 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 for the AQA Specification 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 10 lessons (two per week for 5 weeks). Each lesson lasts 1hr 20 minutes.

This PX Classroom is held on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9am (London time zone), starting from Tuesday, 9th April, 2024. The last lessons are due to be on 7th and 8th May, 2024.
