IMPORTANT

There is a major syllabus reorganisation in CIE A level Chemistry over the next couple of years. Much of the content in the new syllabus is the same as before, but there is a difference in the way the various statements are numbered. It is essential that you work from the right syllabus.

If you are preparing for any CIE A level Chemistry exam in 2020 or 2021, then choose the syllabus here.

If you are preparing for any CIE A level Chemistry exam from 2022 onwards, then choose the syllabus here.


This is for exams from taken in 2020 or 2021.
