    Assessment

    The AQA A-Level Chemistry exam is available in May/June each year. It is assessed over 3 exam papers:

    Paper 1 7405/1 – 2-hour exam
    Paper 2 7405/2 – 2-hour exam
    Paper 3 7405/3 – 2-hour exam

    Optional practical assessment – It is possible for students to receive an A-Level Chemistry qualification without completing the practical assessment. Your certificate will state you have not completed this and can harm your chances of gaining a place at university or getting a job.

    Practical Assessment

    Your A-Level grade will be based on your written examinations. However, in order to receive your A-Level, you must also undergo a separate endorsement of 12 practical skills. These will include some of these listed below:

    Make up a volumetric solution and carry out a simple acid-base titration
    Measurement of an enthalpy change
    Investigation of how the rate of a reaction changes with temperature
    Carry out simple test-tube reactions to identify: cations – Group 2, NH4+ anions – Group 7 (halide ions), OH–, CO3 2–, SO4 2–
    Distillation of a product from a reaction
    Tests for alcohol, aldehyde, alkene and carboxylic acid

    Examination Fees

    As a private candidate, it is the student’s responsibility to arrange their own examinations and practical assessment if required. This is not part of the service offered by UK Open College.

    This should be done prior to enrolment with us. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the necessary arrangements in place & confirmed.

    Fees for these services can vary hugely from centre to centre. It may be worth travelling out of the area. (It’s worth it)
    You can view a list of official AQA approved examination centres here 

    The later you leave it to arrange, the more expensive it can be. At times, it can be impossible to arrange so plan ahead. (8 months minimum recommended)

    Your contract with us is for the course and support only. We will not refund you outside of the 14 days cooling-off period if you have not confirmed these arrangements with your selected centre.

    Enquire & confirm with your chosen centre, do not leave it to chance!

    Optional Practical Assessment*

    Did you know that it is possible for students to receive their A Level qualification without completing the practical endorsement? Please check with your University if they require you to complete the practical assessments. If not, this will save you a lot of time and money. Science related subjects, for example Medicine, will require the practical assessments to be completed but many subjects do not. Practical assessment can be very costly, so it’s worth checking. 

    When arranging your examinations with your chosen exam centre, please check they offer this service if required. Not all of them do and it’s important they are taken at the same place as your written exams. Practical assessments tend to be arranged in the spring a few months prior to written exams. Please plan well in advance!

    You may wish to try www.tutorsandexams.uk who offer a service for both practical and written exams. They have several locations across the UK too. Please be prepared to travel. The rewards far out way the inconvenience of a train journey or trip up the motorway. 

    If you decide not to take the practical assessments, be aware that your certificate will state you have not completed so could harm your chances of gaining a place at university if this is an entry requirement for your selected degree. Double check before you enrol. 

     

    UCAS Points & Predicted Grades

    All of our A Levels will provide you with UCAS points upon successful completion of your examinations. The amount you receive will depend on the grade achieved as detailed below. Tutors can also provide predicted grades for university based on your completed assessments within the course.

    The majority of our A Levels will require a minimum of 3 completed assignments and correspondence to provide a predicted grade. We would advise you register for your course 3 months in advance of when you need a predicted grade for.  Eg: if you require a predicted grade for January, then you should enrol in Sept and aim to compete the 3 tutor marked assessments by December.
