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.
