A-Level Chemistry Conference

To support the learning of the students studying Chemistry at A-level, Mr Rose and I headed to a chemistry conference in London.  The day kicked off at 8 am when we boarded the school minibus, bags loaded with drinks, snacks and plenty of chocolate!  After a challenging journey we safely arrived at the venue.


The conference was superb and focused on challenging areas, how to boost grades and how to meet the demands of the questions for examination success in 2019.  The presenters were interesting and entertaining to watch and provided students with practical, engaging and motivating revision for the A level chemistry exams.  Throughout the day, students actively participated in relevant, focused sessions with an emphasis on how to improve their grades and it encouraged the students to think synoptically.  Students benefited from top examiner insights on what gets high marks and enjoyed the lively and informative presentations with plenty of opportunity to get involved. It was very useful to see practical examples for students to follow for students to focus on common mistakes and how to answer difficult questions correctly.  Although I’m sure the highlight for many was the McDonalds comfort break on the way home!
