Salters Advanced Chemistry is a modern course in which the chemical concepts of organic, physical and inorganic chemistry are introduced within a relevant context. It aims to convey the excitement of contemporary chemistry by focusing on the ways in which chemistry is used, often at the frontiers of the subject. You will study chemistry in a ‘spiral way’ so that chemical ideas introduced in an earlier topic are reinforced in later topics. This approach to teaching and learning allows you to revisit key topics several times during the course, each time taking your knowledge and understanding to a deeper level.
What are the entry requirements?
To study chemistry at this level in addition to the general entry requirements you need to have a grade 5 or better in GCSE mathematics and grade 6 or better in GCSE chemistry or grade 6 or better in GCSE additional science , having studied for the higher tier papers, GCSE applied science is not sufficient for this progression. However a grade 5 will be considered on an individual basis You must also study A level Maths or Mathematical Studies to support numeracy skills.
What opportunities will this lead to?
Many Chemistry students progress on to scientific degrees and then to a wide variety of careers, including medicine, pharmacy, chemical engineering, veterinary medicine, finance, law, media, engineering, forensic science and art restoration. Chemistry opens the door to many careers.
