A Level Chemistry is about connecting the everyday world to the molecular world. Students will develop an understanding of the fundamental properties of matter and of the chemical reactions that form the building blocks of modern medicine and material science. Students can expect a hands-on course, in which practical skills are developed in coordination with their knowledge of the subject material.
