Explore the world at the atomic level. If your future
lies in molecular engineering, synthesising the next aspirin, or even law, Chemistry is the course for you. You’ll develop your lab skills alongside your theoretical knowledge and have the chance to join our Chemistry Olympiad team.
• Builds upon topics previously studied at GCSE
including Organic Chemistry, rates, reversible reactions and mole calculations
• In this course you will use your mathematical
skills to solve problems and your imagination to understand how molecules interact and why they react together
General entry criteria apply plus Science/Maths
GCSEs: Grade 6 in GCSE Maths and Chemistry or Grade 6/6/6 in GCSE Maths and Combined Science. Grades 5/6/6 or 5/6/6/6 in these subjects will be considered where GCSE average score is above 6.5. Studying another A level science and/or Maths alongside Chemistry is highly recommended.
A range of career and apprenticeship opportunities are open to A level chemistry students including chemical, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries and in areas such as forensics, environmental protection and healthcare. The problem solving skills are useful for many other areas, too, such as law and finance.
