Many educational books and digital resources are published each year to support new qualifications. To help you find the right resource for your students, we approve textbooks for most of our specifications.

AQA Approved logoOnce a textbook has successfully completed our approval process, it will be published with the 'AQA approved' badge on its cover.

An AQA-approved textbook is certified by our subject experts to provide good support for our specifications. Textbooks without the 'AQA approved' badge have not been through our approval process and do not provide the same reassurance, even if the AQA name is used in the title.

The textbooks included below for GCSE Chemistry by Collins, Hodder Education and Oxford University Press are now AQA approved.

You can order AQA-approved textbooks directly from the publishers. You don't need to buy approved textbooks in order to teach our specifications.
