Studying A level chemistry opens doors to a wide variety of possible careers, including such diverse fields as agriculture, forensics, environmental science, food sciences, dentistry, medicine, veterinary medicine and engineering, as well as a huge variety of fields in chemistry itself.


Chemistry is also a respected numerate qualification and supports careers in accountancy, banking and finance. It should be noted that regarding medicine and veterinary medicine, most universities regard a good chemistry grade as more important than any other subject.


Chemistry is often described as the ‘central science’ and complements subjects such as Biology, Physics, Maths and Geography wonderfully, but common themes can be found in almost any subject.
