A Level Chemistry
Chemistry is the study of the properties and reactions of substances and their effect on each other, us and the world around us. Practical work is an integral part of the course.
Chemistry introduces students to contemporary issues and they study the chemistry in a spiral way so that chemical ideas, introduced in an early topic, are reinforced later.
To join the course you will need either:-
GCSE Triple Science 3 Grades 6 or above or
GCSE Combined Science (Grades 7:7 or above)
GCSE Maths at Higher Level (Grade 6 or above)
An interest in understanding the world around you, an enthusiasm for practical work and the ability to study independently and work as part of a team.
Why Study Chemistry?
It is an ideal science to complement the study of Biology, Physics, Geography and Engineering, plus it is essential for careers in Medicine, Veterinary Science, Physiotherapy, Dentistry and Chemical Engineering.
In addition, you will gain skills that will make you a suitable candidate for a career in any field, making you highly employable.
