GCSE Chemistry

Pupils will be entered for the GCSE Chemistry specification offered by CCEA at the Higher Tier level. This course provides a thorough preparation for the study of Chemistry and related courses at GCE AS and A2 level. The study of Chemistry aims to stimulate and excite pupils’ curiosity and their interest in, and knowledge of, the events of the world around them. Experimental and investigative skills are developed throughout the course and are assessed by coursework. This accounts for 25% of the overall mark and is divided into three categories:

A Planning experimental procedures
B Obtaining evidence
C Interpreting and evaluating

The remaining 75% is assessed by means of two written examinations.

GCE Chemistry

AS Chemistry builds on the knowledge, understanding and skills developed within GCSE Science. The specification adopts a modular structure and pupils are required to study 3 modules for the AS course. The knowledge base is contained within the first 2 modules consisting of general chemistry (Module 1) and organic, physical and inorganic chemistry (Module 2). Experimental skills continue to be developed and are assessed by means of a practical examination (Module 3) which accounts for 30% of the overall AS.

To obtain a full A level a further 3 modules are studied in Year 14. Module A2 1  and A2 2 contain further organic, physical, inorganic and analytical chemistry while Module A2 3 is a practical exam consisting of a planning exercise and practical exercises.


Recently pupils had the opportunity to visit Almac. During the visit they were given a guided tour of their laboratory facilities and were informed of local and international opportunities in STEM careers.
