Chemistry has the right formula for life!
From the moment you are born, and throughout your life, you are surrounded by chemistry - in the air you breathe, the food you eat and the clothes you wear.
Chemistry is the study of substances; what they are made of, how they interact and what role they play in living things.
This course will suit you if you are practical, like solving problems and are good at Maths. An ability to learn and recall facts will also help with the study of a wide range of organic molecules and reactions.
Particular areas of study will include rates of reaction, structure and bonding, analytical techniques, carbon chemistry and patterns in the Periodic Table.
The course is assessed by written exams. There will also be a practical endorsement, which will be covered by a range of practical experiences throughout the two years.
You will need to achieve at least 5 GCSEs – 2 at Grade 6 including Maths and 3 at Grade 5.
In addition, you will need Grade 6 at Double or Triple Science.
There may be opportunities to attend enrichment activities at local universities in both years of the course, such as: Chemistry Experience Day and Analytical Chemistry Competition at the University of Wolverhampton; Spectroscopy Masterclass at University of Birmingham.
