This level 3 Diploma in Chemistry is of a similar academic standard and content to an A level in the subject. The course will be of interest to anyone who already has a basic knowledge and understanding of chemistry commensurate with GCSE level and wishes to develop their subject knowledge. It may also be of interest to students who wish to refresh their knowledge and understanding of chemistry as part of continuing professional development or as part of on going higher level planned study.
During your study you will be provided with an opportunity to explore the basic principles of chemistry which includes atomic structure, modes of chemical bonding and the concept of periodicity. You will also have an opportunity to study the basic principles and concepts of organic chemistry and associated reaction mechanisms.
In addition to these topics you will have an opportunity to explore aromatic chemistry and relate associated concepts to everyday life and contexts.
The overarching aim of the course is to provide you with an opportunity to study the basic chemistry concepts in a real-world context and therefore be able to understand their relevance and application in the modern world.
Each unit has two assessments which are mandatory. The first assessment will be completed following study of unit 5 and the second following study of unit 10. Each of the assessments will be divided into two parts covering relevant units. You will be expected to write a total of 3000 words across the two assessments and comprehensive guidance will be provided associated with each assessment task
You will be expected to meet all criteria in each assessment element in order to successfully achieve a pass grade.
There are no set text books to accompany the course as all supporting sources are accessed via links which are located within the course or through simple internet research. However if you wish to support your study with a text book then select one that suits your own learning style and preference and make sure it is commensurate with this level of study. Any current chemistry A level text book will be more than adequate to support your studies.
