This subject will be offered in Option Block B
Chemistry sometimes is called the “central science” because it connects other sciences to each other, such as biology, physics, geology and environmental science. It’s a great stepping stone to pure science university degrees and essential for other courses like medicine and dentistry.
As well as practical knowledge of the subject, chemistry students develop many other skills prized by employers such as problem-solving, numeracy, communication, creativity and data analysis. Gaining these skills means that you can have a future in all sorts of careers from finance to public relations.
