A level chemistry

What is the primary distinction between Chemistry at A Level and GCSE Chemistry?
I’d say A level has a lot more organic and more maths.

A level is harder because it goes into more depth.

You realise that some of the things they taught at GCSE is just wrong.

When you take it at A level, it makes you realise how much of a mistake it was 😂😂...at least in my case. Some of its not too bad but there are some topics which are AWFUL!

frr....sometimes, it's just best to leave things unanswered and just accept. 😂 Meanwhile at university, I'm pretty sure they use a different nomenclature system for naming organic compounds and stuff. At the Imperial Open Day, the Great Hall was full so they couldn't fit in more people for the student panel so they decided to open up another lecture theatre for those interested and it looked like a Chemistry lecture had taken place prior because there was this one giant molecule on the board with about 5 benzene groups attached to it.

So glad I figured out my "liking" of Chemistry during these two years.
