  • Course type Distance learning course
  • Duration 1 Year, Part-time
  • Awarded by AQA
  • i Tutor is available to students.


A distance learning course is the ideal way to gain an A Level Chemistry (Full AS + A2) Course. Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning A Level Chemistry is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for the A Level Chemistry exam through home study. What's more, because the distance learning A Level Chemistry course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required.

Our Fast Track A Level courses are 1 year courses with which you will receive priority tutor support throughout the duration. Upon completion of the course you will receive a certificate awarded by a national awarding body such as Edexcel, AQA and OCR. We also offer UCAS points with these courses which will vary depending on the grade you receive.

Chemistry is concerned with the science of matter, particularly its structure, properties and reactions. Chemistry is of central importance to the sciences as a whole as the chemical reactions that it governs are fundamental to all of science. This course contains all the information you will need to pass the A-Level Chemistry exams. 

This course is based on two approaches:

The concept-led approach which includes study of the laws, theories and models of chemistry, exploring the practical application of these in both knowledge and with reference to everyday life.
The context-led approach considers applications of chemical knowledge and looks at the underpinning concepts.
This particular course will offer both these approaches in combination, so students will benefit from a mixed approach; this is more appropriate for distance learning students as there is a need for flexibility. The assessment criteria and structure is the same for both approaches.
