In order to be successful with chemistry in the 6th form, it is important that you have a solid understanding and knowledge of the fundamental aspects of the subject. Over the summer, we would like you to complete the attached booklet in preparation for a baseline test, which you will have in your first lesson in September.

If you have done the Combined Trilogy GCSE, rather than GCSE Chemistry, see the attached list of topic areas that you will need to go through to fill in the gaps. The CGP revision guide for AQA GCSE Chemistry or the physics and maths tutor web-site will be suitable resources:

Physics and maths tutor

If you feel confident in your knowledge and understanding of GCSE topics, I have attached an A level unit on Atomic Structure which you can work through as extension material.
