Qualification aims and objectives
The aims and objectives of the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced GCE in Chemistry
are to enable students to develop:
• essential knowledge and understanding of different areas of the subject and
how they relate to each other
• a deep appreciation of the skills, knowledge and understanding of scientific
methods
• competence and confidence in a variety of practical, mathematical and
problem-solving skills
• their interest in and enthusiasm for the subject, including developing an interest
in further study and careers associated with the subject
• an understanding of how society makes decisions about scientific issues and
how the sciences contribute to the success of the economy and society.

The purposes of this qualification are to:
• define and assess achievement of the knowledge, skills and understanding that
will be needed by students planning to progress to undergraduate study at UK
higher education institutions, particularly (although not only) in the same
subject area
• set out a robust and internationally comparable post-16 academic course of
study to develop that knowledge, skills and understanding
• enable higher education institutions to identify accurately the level of
attainment of students
• provide a basis for school and college accountability measures at age 18
• provide a benchmark of academic ability for employers.
