Chemistry at Palmer's College
Chemistry plays a part in everything we encounter in our everyday lives, from the colour of the clothes we wear to the medicines we take when ill. Chemists work on such things as developing new materials that underpin advances in technology and on developing ever more sensitive tests to help in the diagnosis of disease and the detection of crime.
Atomic structure; bonding, intermolecular forces, quantitative chemistry, spectroscopy, the periodic table, thermochemistry, organic chemistry, polymers, atmospheric pollution.
Chemistry is an academic subject requiring committed study. Numerical work is an essential part of Chemistry so good maths skills are needed.
Minimum of four Cs and two Bs at GCSE which must include grade B in Maths and a grade B in either GCSE Chemistry or in both Core and Additional Science.
You will be expected to purchase a lab coat from the College for approximately £10*.
Studying Chemistry, usually in conjunction with another science subject and perhaps maths, can be the first step towards a career in areas such as chemical engineering, medical laboratory science, biochemistry, ecology, metallurgy, medicine, dentistry, food science and marine biology.
A Chemistry subject leaflet is available from the College website.
