A Level Chemistry Course

A Level Chemistry Course is an academic qualification that is widely valued by universities throughout the UK.




English Maths Science Tuition and Examination Centre (EMSTEC) offer a ‘fast track’ A Level Chemistry Course. Based at our centre in Birmingham, students attend one day a week . We offer ‘accelerated learning’ and teach the full A Level syllabus in one academic year. The A Level course will be facilitated by our experienced science teachers. We have a laboratory where students will be guided in the correct use of laboratory equipment enabling them to approach the theoretical and practical examinations with confidence. The course fees are inclusive of all teaching materials, support and examination fees.

Course Details

A Level Chemistry Course aims to further develop your understanding of how science can be of benefit to you as an individual as well as to society as a whole.

A-Level chemistry covers many different scientific topics as well as how they relate to each other. During the courses duration you will further develop your personal skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works, preparing you for further study.

This course enables the student to:

  • Gain up to 56 UCAS points which can be used towards degree level study.
  • Develop their knowledge of both practical and theoretical aspects of Chemistry.
  • Understand the science on a practical level during lab based sessions.
  • Increase their career potential, using their new gained knowledge to open doors to careers in medicine to engineering.

Please note that under the new A Level specifications set by AQA, the AS Level is now a separate qualification, and does not count towards the full A Level.

What’s assessed

Please note that this exam is broad in its scope and may cover:

  • Any content.
  • Any practical skills.

Please refer to the course content tab for a full breakdown of all topics covered.

The following practicals must be carried out by all students taking this course. Written papers will assess knowledge and understanding of these, and the skills exemplified within each practical.

  1. Make up a volumetric solution and carry out a simple acid–base titration.
  2. Measurement of an enthalpy change.
  3. Investigation of how the rate of a reaction changes with temperature.
  4. Carry out simple test-tube reactions to identify:
    1. cations – Group 2, NH4+
    2. anions – Group 7 (halide ions), OH–, CO32–, SO42–
  5. Distillation of a product from a reaction.
  6. Tests for alcohol, aldehyde, alkene and carboxylic acid.
  7. Measuring the rate of reaction:
    1. by an initial rate method.
    2. by a continuous monitoring method.
  8. Measuring the EMF of an electrochemical cell.
  9. Investigate how pH changes when a weak acid reacts with a strong base and when a strong acid reacts with a weak base.
  10. Preparation of:
    1. a pure organic solid and test of its purity.
    2. a pure organic liquid.
  1. Carry out simple test-tube reactions to identify transition metal ions in aqueous solution.
  2. Separation of species by thin-layer chromatography.
