Oxford Home Schooling Chemistry IGCSE Course

This new Oxford Home Schooling  course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry specification. The Edexcel subject code is 4CH0 IGCSE Chemistry.

The lessons are planned so that all the material and preparation required for the final examination papers is in the following six course modules:

  • Module 1: Principles of Chemistry
  • Module 2: Chemistry of the Elements
  • Module 3: Organic Chemistry
  • Module 4: Physical Chemistry
  • Module 5: Chemistry in Society
  • Module 6: Investigative Skills

The IGCSE Chemistry course is an ideal preparation for those who wish to go on to study Chemistry at AS and A2 level.

The course is designed to be accessible to students who may have only a limited previous background in science.  There is no requirement to submit coursework or to undertake a lab-based practical exam.

The OHS course also aims to develop your skills for the practical-based components of the theory exams.  It is not essential to carry out this work yourself, but if you can undertake some of it at home, or have the opportunity to perform supervised laboratory work in the course of your studies, this will be a great help.

There are two written exam papers for IGCSE Chemistry. The first last 2 hours (120 marks) and the second lasts 1 hour (60 marks). Paper 1 is exactly the same as one of the three papers that make up the IGCSE Science specification.

Within IGCSE Home Education there are the following subjects
