The specification studies the three main areas of the subject, Physical, Organic and inorganic Chemistry. The course teaches a broad syllabus of skills, concepts and techniques that will allow students to access a wide range of science based careers and further education. We believe that chemistry is fundamentally an experimental subject. The specification provides numerous opportunities to use practical experiences to link theory to reality, and equip students with the essential practical skills they need. The course last two years and is a linear qualification. In order to achieve the award, students must complete all exams in May/June in a single year. All assessments must be taken in the same series. Questions for these specifications will be set which require students to demonstrate: - their knowledge and understanding of the content developed in one section or topic, including the associated mathematical and practical skills or - the ability to apply mathematical and practical skills to areas of content they are not normally developed in or - the ability to draw together different areas of knowledge and understanding within one answer. A range of question types will be used, including those that require extended responses. Extended response questions will allow students to demonstrate their ability to construct and develop a sustained line of reasoning which is coherent, relevant, substantiated and logically structured. Extended responses may be in written English, extended calculations, or a combination of both, as appropriate to the question.
