We have listened to feedback from all parts of the international school education community, including a large number of teachers and a number of universities both internationally and in the UK.

Our International Advanced Subsidiary and Advanced Level Chemistry has been developed to be engaging for international learners and to give them the necessary skills to support progression to higher education or further study in Chemistry, as well as to a wide range of other subjects.

Key qualification features

Using feedback from teachers, we have retained several key features which we know you value. These include:

  • modular assessment, offered at different times of year to suit your delivery model
  • practical skills assessed through a dedicated examination unit both at AS (Unit 3) and at A Level (Unit 6)
  • comparable content with the UK GCE A Level – giving confidence to students, teachers and universities on comparability between specifications
  • a range of types of questions in exams – testing breadth of knowledge, as well as allowing depth of understanding to be examined

Why choose this specification?

Our International Advanced Level in Chemistry replaces the international version of the Edexcel GCE A level in the subject.

Covering laboratory skills and the core chemical principles, the Edexcel International Advanced Level in Chemistry is designed to be studied over two years, with the option of a one-year AS level course.

The specification is available for teaching in international centres only and is assessed through a written exam instead of coursework.
