A Level Chemistry tuition topics

Course date: Jan 2023 but students can enrol at any time throughout the year

A Level Chemistry (Year 12 to 13, age 16-18)

An essential A Level for those who wish to study Medicine, Dentistry or a Chemical Science at university, Chemistry is taught across two years and consists of three disciplines: Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. Students can opt to complete an AS Level (over one year) or the full A Level (over two years) and may follow the examination boards such as OCR, AQA, EDEXCEL and WJEC. Chemistry is split into three disciplines at A Level; Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. Science With Confidence has extensive experience of teaching all aspects of the A Level Chemistry course:
