Chemistry at Peter Symonds College

Course description

The Salters course clearly links chemical ideas to present day applications. It is designed to follow on from GCSE additional science or GCSE Chemistry. The ability to handle calculations and mathematical rearrangements is a definite advantage here.

Frequent practical work helps you handle equipment and chemicals safely, and develops your skills in observing, interpreting, and analysing your results. Chemistry combines particularly well with Maths, Biology, Physics, Environmental Studies and Geology and is an essential subject if you are considering a career in medicine, veterinary science, pharmacy or dentistry

Entry requirements
