Chemistry is the fascinating study of all matter, and possibly the oldest recognisable practical science with roots in the alchemy of the middle ages.

In Chemistry you will analyse, evaluate and explain result and observations. You will need to imagine chemicals being made of particles that you cannot see and understand what happens when those particles interact with energy and how they form new and different chemicals.

Modern chemists play a vital role in our society designing new materials for our phones and clothes, discovering new drugs for medical treatments and even new smart materials.

Due to the nature of the subject, chemistry is an excellent partner with Biology or Physics, or as a standalone A-Level.
