IGCSE Chemistry Course

The Chemistry course is available to study following the most current specifications from both the Cambridge (CIE) and Edexcel exam boards. We created the course in response to the needs of home-educating parents, and students but they are equally suited to any private candidate who wishes to study Chemistry IGCSE.
Students can start at any time and work at their own pace towards
taking the exams which are in May / June and Oct / Nov each year for the Cambridge (CIE) exam board  or May/ June and January for Edexcel.

Cambridge (CIE) IGCSE Chemistry
0602 current specification: Chemistry : for 2019 onwards

CIE  offer students taking their IGCSE courses the chance to be awarded grades 9 – 1 in place of the current A* – G system. The ONLY differences to the current specifications are the codes used to register. The content, the set books and the exam papers are exactly the same so you can continue to use our current courses, with the current codes BUT when you come to register with your exam centre you enter with one code for an A-G grade (0620) and a different code if you would prefer a 9-1 grade (0971).

Set Books

It was decided to carefully choose a textbook already written for, and published by, trusted educational publishers. The courses we offer provide a way for the student to study the requirements of the specification using these set books. Our courses supplement the information found in them with additional original materials, links to websites and to videos.

The set books are not included with the course but we ask students to purchase these separately (so you can opt for second hand copies if you’d prefer).

For your convenience please see the link below that will take you to Amazon.

Students sitting the Edexcel exam will need the following book:
