metals, optical isomerism and polymers.
A minimum of five GCSEs at Grade 9 - 4. This MUST include at least a Grade 4 in English Language and Mathematics
Grade 6 in Chemistry OR Grade 6-6 in Combined Science

A Level Chemistry will develop thinking and analytical skills
with a high degree of problem solving, as well as ‘hands on’
skills with a high level of attention to detail.
Chemistry is an essential A level for the many courses in the
healthcare pathway, for example in medicine, pharmacy and
dentistry. Many other careers and degree courses can follow
on from A Level Chemistry. These include the biological
sciences, physics, mathematics, pharmacology and analytical
chemistry. Chemistry is also taken by many law applicants as
it demonstrates the ability to cope with difficult concepts.
