    Thinking of doing Alevel chemistry in private, would it be worthwhiel doing as or a2 chemistry as ive heard as dosen't really count anymore any help would be appreciated and any tips you could give me to get a good grade

    The AS exam doesn't count per se, in terms of going towards your A2 overall grade. But, you need to learn the AS/Year 1 content of the 2 year A level chemistry course. So much of the 2nd year of the A level builds on and assumes a knowledge of year 1, and you can be examined in the A level exams on AS content. So if you're a private candidate, I'd say learn the content for both years, only take the A level exams.
