The Canterbury Revision School’s A-Level Chemistry courses are exam board specific.

Courses are tailored as a result of our detailed analysis of individual student’s requirements before the course. This ensures that our tutors design a bespoke programme and cover relevant content, examination questions and techniques during the course.

Students can enrol for a one day course or two one day courses which focus on the following key components:

Physical chemistry

  • Atomic structure

  • Amount of substance

  • Bonding

  • Energetics

  • Kinetics

  • Chemical equilibria

  • Oxidation, reduction and redox equations

  • Thermodynamics

  • Rate equations

  • Equilibrium constant Kp for homogeneous systems

  • Electrode potentials and electrochemical cells

  • Acids and bases

Inorganic chemistry

  • Periodicity

  • The alkaline earth metals

  • The halogens

  • Properties of Period 3 elements

        and their oxides

  • Transition metals

  • Reactions of ions and aqueous


Organic chemistry

  • Alkanes

  • Halogenoalkanes

  • Alkenes

  • Alcohols

  • Organic analysis

  • Optical isomerism

  • Aldehydes and ketones

  • Carboxylic acids and derivatives

  • Aromatic chemistry

  • Amines

  • Polymers

  • Amino acids, proteins and DNA

  • Organic synthesis

  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy

  • Chromatography

Key information
Class size
  • Our experience shows that small groups create the right balance between discussion and independent learning with tutors able to devote considerable time to individual students.

  • Classes are never larger than six at A - Level. They are very rarely smaller than three.
