Wonder is the heaviest element on the periodic table. Even a tiny fleck of it stops time.
If I have a thousand ideas a year, and only one turns out to be good, I am satisfied.
Why Study Chemistry?
Students study in a safe, positive learning environment where they are encouraged to problem solve and think independently. King's provides them with the skills they need to succeed, not only in their exams but in their future lives. In the latter stages of the Sixth Form, students investigate redox chemistry and complete volumetric analysis, providing them with a hands-on experience of the subject in modern, well-equipped laboratories.
The A level is assessed at the end of the second year in three exam papers: Two 2¼ hour papers each of 100 marks, and one 1½ hour paper of 70 marks. There is also a ‘practical endorsement’ completed from the practical investigations carried out during the course which is reported separately to the grade obtained from the examined A level units.
