The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) is a subject-based academic qualification offered in the UK by various examination boards such as AQA, OCR, and EDEXCEL. Courses offered by all boards have a linear assessment, which means the exams are taken at the end of the course after 2 years.
GCSE Chemistry covers areas such as Atomic Structure, Bonding, Chemical, and Energy Changes, Organic Chemistry, Chemical Analysis, Chemical Equations, Ionic Equations, predicting the products of reactions, and others. GCSE assessment consists of two externally examined papers. Topics covered in each exam differ somewhat; however, some topics, such as Atomic Structure, Bonding, and others from paper 1 are assessed in paper 2 as well. The exams contain multiple-choice questions, open-ended structured questions, calculations etc.
