Chemistry tutorials take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4pm in the department.

A level in Upper Sixth:

Physical Chemistry  

These topics expands upon the Physical Chemistry topics covered at AS. Topics include Thermodynamics,  Kinetics, Equilibria and Acids & Bases,

Organic Chemistry topics such as Carbonyl Compounds, Aromatic Chemistry, Amino Acids & DNA and Polymers cover a lot of new material. Analytical techniques such as Mass Spectrometry, Infra-Red Spectroscopy are revisited whilst Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy are studied for the first time.

Inorganic Chemistry

Much of the material covered in this unit revolves around study of the Transition Metals and their compounds.

Practical work will be assessed in a similar way to AS, however the demand of practical experiments and the assessment level will be higher.
