Summary

GCSE Chemistry is the branch of science that examines substances and composition within matter. It focuses on experiments and investigation into the properties of a substance, as well as reactions. GCSE Chemistry covers fundamentals of chemistry, such as anatomic structure, bonding and the Periodic Table, as well as quantitative chemistry, organic chemistry and chemical analysis. This course is taught through interactive workshops, practicals, discussions and theoretical presentations.

The topics covered in this subject are:

  • Atomic structure and the Periodic Table
  • Bonding, structure and the properties of matter
  • Quantitative chemistry
  • Chemical changes
  • Energy changes
  • The rate and extent of chemical change
  • Organic chemistry
  • Chemical analysis
  • Chemistry of the atmosphere
  • Using resources

What do I need to join?

To enroll on the GCSE+ programme, applicants are expected to have a minimum grade profile of 2/3 in all subjects.

Applicants will need to bring a marked piece of work to the interview.

Entry tests in maths and English (and science if applying to a science subject) are required. The tests are usually held during the taster day.

Work Experience

You will be required to do a minimum of 36 hours of work experience. This is typically done in a week during term time. The aim of work experience is to provide learners with life experience in writing an exciting CV, to help them discover what full-time employment is like and to help them begin to think of potential career paths.

What can I do next?

GCSE Chemistry opens the door to further study at Level 3. Learners typically progress onto A-levels, with the goal of studying a chemistry-related subject at university. Studying chemistry is essential for those who want to achieve careers in medicine, pharmaceuticals, renewable/nuclear energy and forensic science. Chemistry is looked at favourably by employers because it shows the ability to understand complex matters.
