This is reflected in enrolment figures in the United States, where it shows the highest increase for any subject over the last five years.Entry requirements and skills needed: Minimum grade B in GCSE Additional Science (or GCSE Chemistry) and C in Maths. About half of the topics are mathematical, so you need to be reasonably good at handling decimals, graphs, equations and formulae.
