    Hey guys, how did ur exams go, anyone wanna post the answers haha?

    Was worded badly

    GCSE Chemistry 4402 gives students the opportunity to gain a good understanding of:

    • the nature of substances and how they react together
    • how Chemistry is used in business and industry
    • how our use of raw materials in fuels and manufacturing can affect the global and local environment.

    The specification is designed to help students understand how to formulate a scientific approach to understanding and explaining the world and solving problems. This means that the 'How Science Works' approach is integrated throughout the specification.
    The specification is structured in a way that starts with the fundamental ideas in Chemistry, putting the building blocks in place. This enables students to develop an understanding of topics such as chemical structures and their properties, chemical reactions and how to analyse substances.
    Many of the materials considered are substances that students will come across in their daily lives like drinking water, vegetable oils and metals. This helps engage students by putting their learning in context. Teachers are encouraged to develop students' practical skills with hands-on work which helps make the subject come alive in the classroom.
    It is suitable for students of all abilities, whether they intend further study in Science or not.
    It can count towards the Science component of the English Baccalaureate (Ebacc) if students enter any three of the four separate sciences – GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Computer Science – and achieve grades A* to C in at least two subjects.
    It forms part of AQA's flexible suite of GCSE Science exams which offer teachers a variety of possibilities and combinations to help students achieve to the best of their abilities.
