Chemistry (A-Level)/Practical skills in chemistry
For A-level chemistry, you will have to partake in certain practical experiments of three types: quantitative, qualitative and evaluative. You will be graded for one of each in both you AS and A2 parts of the course, adding up to six graded experiments in the two years. You will usually have two or three attempts at each category.
Candidates should carry out experimental and investigative activities in order to develop their practical skills. Experimental and investigative activities should be set in contexts appropriate to, and reflect the demand of, the AS content. These activities should allow candidates to use their knowledge and understanding of Chemistry in planning, carrying out, analysing and evaluating their work.
