Chemistry A Level at St Wilfrid's RC College
An appreciation of the world is hardly possible without a working knowledge of the nature and
behaviour of the many materials of which it is made, and of the useful products that can be
made from them. The aim of the course is to stimulate and sustain the students' interest in
Chemistry and to develop their skills in practical work and in the intellectual processes by which
conclusion can be drawn from experimental results.
Chemistry is known as the “central science” because all other fields can relate back to chemistry. It is
an essential gateway subject for the study of medicine, pharmacy, biochemistry and genetics
although students who study chemistry often have highly lucrative and interesting careers in the less
predictable food, ecology, agriculture, wine, materials and cosmetic industries. It is also interesting to
note that many lawyers, accountants, financiers, economists and barristers take science A levels prior
to specialising at degree level.
