Autumn and Spring terms:

  • Module 5 – Physical chemistry and transition metals. This includes reaction rates, equilibrium, pH, buffers, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, redox potentials, electrode potentials and transition metals.
  • Module 6 – Organic chemistry and analysis. Course content includes aromatic compounds, carbonyl compounds, carboxylic acids, esters, nitrogen containing compounds, polymers, organic synthesis, chromatography and spectroscopy.

Summer term:

Final preparation for exams, including concise scientific writing and exam technique.

Practical work:

Practical work is assessed and carried out over the year in six additional required practical activities. This totals to 12 assessed practical activities over the two years. These contribute to a pass/fail practical endorsement and do not affect the final letter grade.


Half termly testing on recent and previous work.
