Covering everything from the principles of chemistry through to the subject’s impact in society, the Chemistry IGCSE remains a steadfast favourite for students looking to gain a recognised qualification in one of education’s core subjects.
Alongside the Biology IGCSE and Physics IGCSE, this course is perfect for students looking to develop their scientific understanding, paving the way for further study at A level.
The Chemistry IGCSE course comprises six core modules. These are:
- 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
There are 27 lessons and 10 tutor-marked assessments in total, enabling students to challenge themselves as each module progresses, and as they move towards the course’s final examinations.
From 2019, Oxford Home Schooling IGCSE Chemistry matches the content of the Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry 4CH1 specification exams.

After obtaining an IGCSE in Chemistry, there are plenty of options for our students to explore.
While some choose to study chemistry at A level, others use their IGCSE as a stepping stone to gain access to other qualifications, such as a BTEC in Health and Social Care. This can then be used to pursue a career in the NHS or another healthcare provider.
A career in chemistry?
Perfect for students that want to broaden their knowledge or are thinking about pursuing a career in the sciences later down the line, learn the core basics of chemistry and study the substances that make up the world we live in with this home study IGCSE course by Oxford Home Schooling.
Professional careers in the field of science are also popular choices for those with a Chemistry IGCSE, while many students go on to study the topic as undergraduates at university.
