  5. A2 Chemistry Topics Unit 5 • Redox chemistry of the transition metals • Arenes • Nitrogen compounds • Organic synthesis Unit 6 Further assessment of laboratory skills Unit 4 • Rates and entropy • Acid/base equilibria • Chirality, carbonyl compounds and carboxylic acid derivatives • Advanced spectroscopy and chromatography

  6. How it all fits together

  7. Skills to be developed during the course • Practical skills in the laboratory • Analytical skills • Presentation skills • Research skills • Group work • Independent learning and wider reading

  8. Why study A LevelChemistry? • Chemistry is central to understanding the modern world of designer materials and pharmaceuticals • Chemistry is essential to the understanding of many other scientific disciplines, from agroscience to zoology! • Chemistry provides excellent preparation for further study at University, and is required for most medical and veterinary science courses • Chemistry opens doors to a wide range of non-scientific courses and career paths such as business and economics • Chemistry is a challenging and well-respected qualification

  9. Why study Chemistryat Ashlyns? For many years our Chemistry students have consistently achieved results that exceed the National average Many have gone on to obtain excellent degrees from the country’s top-rated Universities
