The Chemistry IGCSE Course is designed to follow the structure of the Edexcel 4CH0 specification and is divided into six separate modules. In combination with other suitable IGCSE entry subjects the course is an ideal preparation for those who wish to go on to study Chemistry at A level.
The course is designed to develop (1) a broad understanding of chemical facts, concepts and principles, (2) skills in chemical investigation and (3) an ability to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of modern scientific developments.
Each lesson of the Chemistry IGCSE course begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study which enables students to develop a range of scientific skills as they work with diagrams, graphs, statistics, photographic images and online media.
Effective learning is encouraged through frequent activities and self-assessment tests. The course includes 8 Tutor-marked Assignments (TMAís) including 2 Mock Exams.
The course is designed to be accessible to students who may have only a limited previous background in science. If you have some background in Chemistry then you should find that some of the lessons build upon things that you have met before in your earlier studies.
The Chemistry IGCSE course is designed to prepare students for the Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry (4CH0) Specification for examinations in June 2012 and later years.

Every student receives a personal tutor with whom they need to keep in regular contact. The essential relationship between student and tutor begins with an introductory letter and a telephone call to help decide on a study plan.
All tutors are fully qualified teachers holding either a Postgraduate Certificate in Education or a degree in education. So when you enrol on our home study courses you can be assured of the assistance of a professionally qualified subject specific tutor.
We donít set a limit on how often you can contact your tutor. The advice and encouragement our tutors provide are an important part of your learning experience. You can contact your tutor by Phone, Post or Email. There are tutor-marked assignments (TMAís) in every one of our home study courses. These help the student consolidate the learning he or she has done and prepare for examinations.
All tutors have a local rate telephone number such as a 0845 number. This means that when you phone your tutor it will only cost you the price of a local call. Whilst you are still actively submitting assignments, you should expect to be in contact with your tutor regularly. Remember, to get the most out of your tutor, you will need to tell them when you need assistance.
Edexcel are currently in the process of putting together a comprehensive list of those centres who provide assistance to private candidates and this will available before the end of the year.
