4. Syllabus content
4.2 Subject content
The learning outcomes to be studied by all candidates are in normal type.
The additional learning outcomes to be studied by A2 candidates are shown in bold type. The A2
components will assess all learning outcomes and will not be limited to those in bold type.
Learning outcomes
In order to specify the syllabus as precisely as possible, and also to emphasise the importance of skills other
than recall, learning outcomes have been used. Each part of the syllabus is specified by a brief content,
followed by detailed learning outcomes. Although this format makes the syllabus a lengthier document, it
will be helpful to teachers and candidates.
Teachers should incorporate social, environmental, economic and technological aspects of chemistry, where
relevant, throughout the syllabus. Some examples are included in the core syllabus and in the Applications
of Chemistry section, and candidates should be encouraged to apply the principles in these examples to
other situations introduced during the course. Inclusion of further examples in the core of the syllabus has
been avoided, as this would merely increase the amount of factual recall required.
Use of IT
Aim 5 emphasises the importance of Information Technology (IT) in this Chemistry course. Candidates
should make full use of IT techniques in their practical work. Teachers may also use IT in demonstrations
and simulations.
Asterisks (*) placed alongside learning outcomes indicate areas where teachers might use applications of
IT. The list is not exhaustive. The Appendix contains a section Information Technology (IT) usage in A Level
Chemistry, which suggests appropriate applications of IT to those areas.
