Can you still get an A-A* in Chemistry without doing A Level Maths?

Defo, just make sure ur math basics in chemistry are strong so just the normal mole calculations, titrations etc. And during the course u will come across some concepts that a level maths would have helped u understood more like logarithms in acids and bases but it’s not that difficult to grasp. So just make sure mole calculations, yields, atom economies, titrations are strong and u will do great. I think it’s really just about having a strong foundation and u will just get better at it throughout the course.

Thank you! I feel like I find the calculations doable as I was able to do GCSE Maths but I just didn't have an interest enough to do it for A Level, so hopefully I can still manage it throughout the rest of the year.

Mate the Maths needed for A level Chemistry is probably equal to grade 5 as most of it is just plugging numbers into formulas and converting units. . Besides, even if you're terrible at Maths you have 2 years to learn how to do it.

I was thinking why people said it was extremely hard because so far we've been using formulas only but everyone has different abilities so it's understandable that we all find different things difficult.
