Chemistry is an essential science which may be studied as a single science or in combination with any of the other sciences. It builds on the concepts and ideas studied at GCSE with a particular emphasis on â€˜How Science Worksâ€™. The course is designed to develop investigative and practical skills.
Progression to Career/ University Courses:
The importance of chemistry as a central science is reflected in its priority requirement in many fields of science such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, pharmacy and geological and environmental sciences. Many of our former students have gone to university to study in these areas of chemistry.
Since chemistry involves logical thought and critical analysis, many non-science related courses at university accept those who have studied chemistry.
The specification overlaps with GCE specifications in Biology, Human Biology and Physics, as well as Environmental Studies. There is some overlap with GCE mathematics in the use and application of formulae and equations such as handling data, algebra, graphs, arithmetic computation and geometry & trigonometry.
