LiveSchool is a new way of learning A Level Chemistry from Pembrokeshire College.

You will have access to 60 x two hour A level Chemistry lessons delivered live by your course tutor (one per week during term time throughout the course).

All of these live sessions are also recorded to allow you to access any of your previous lessons whenever you want to…which is very useful for revising!

LiveSchool also includes A level Chemistry revision and exam preparation sessions towards the end of the course.

The A Level Chemistry – LiveSchool course covers the following topics:

  • Development of practical skills in Chemistry
  • Foundations in Chemistry
  • Periodic table and energy
  • Core organic Chemistry
  • Physical Chemistry and transition elements
  • Organic Chemistry an analysis

While there are no formal requirements to study A Level Chemisty LiveSchool, we recommend that you have completed an appropriate Level 2 IGCSE Chemistry/Science course prior to your study and have a strong grasp of English and Maths.

Included with your LiveSchool A Level Chemistry online Course is:

  • 24/7 access to the LiveSchool training platform so you can study anytime
  • ALL learning documentation (including text books)
  • Access to media-rich interactive learning resources
  • 60 hours of A Level Chemistry online lessons (including recordings)
  • Lively and interactive lessons, where you can engage in with other students
  • Dedicated course tutor
  • Tutor-marked assignments + feedback
  • 24 months priority tutor support
  • Tutor-marked past papers
  • Revision support and examination preparation

As part of your A Level Chemistry LiveSchool Course you will be required to complete regular assessments which we call HomeWork.

While your HomeWork does not count towards your final grade, it is used to monitor your progress and ability.

All HomeWork has been designed to prepare you for your examinations, and questions are based on examination style questions.

Your HomeWork has been designed to match a specific A level Chemistry LiveSchool session, so it is easy to go back and revisit the relevant lesson if you get stuck.

The most important part of your A Level Chemistry course (apart from you) is your dedicated tutor.

All LiveSchool tutors have extensive academic experience and have taught Chemistry in the classroom as well as online.

You will be assigned a tutor as soon as you enrol on your course who will support you for 24 months during your studies. You can contact your tutor via email, messaging or telephone with any questions.

24 months tutor support included with this course.

Science Practical Endorsement

The assessment of practical skills is a compulsory requirement of the course of study for A-level Chemistry. It will appear on all students’ certificates as a separately reported result, alongside the overall grade for the qualification.

Students must carry out a minimum of 12 practical activities which, together, meet the requirements of:

  • 5b (Practical skills identified for direct assessment and developed through teaching and learning)
  • 5c (Use of apparatus and techniques)

Students’ practical work will be assessed by teachers, using common practical assessment criteria (CPAC) that are consistent across exam boards
Students who demonstrate the required standard across all the requirements of the CPAC will receive a ‘pass’ grade

Examination Fees are not included with your LiveSchool course.
As part of the enrollment process, a member of the LiveSchool examinations team will contact you to discuss your examination arrangements.

The A Level Chemistry course is £900 per year if studied as a single subject (£1800 in total)

If you choose A Level Chemistry as part of a study package (3 subjects or more) the course is £825 per year (£1650 overall)
