Why Chemistry is a Great Subject to Study
Chemistry is a subject of science that deals with the properties, composition, and structure of substances. These substances, which are also referred to as elements and compounds, occur both naturally and artificially on earth. Chemistry is concerned with the properties of atoms and the laws governing their combinations. Chemistry is an exceptional subject to study not only because it opens up a wide range of career opportunities but also because it is essential for meeting our basic needs, such as food, water, clothing, shelter, health, energy, clean air, soil, and more.
With a Chemistry GCSE and A-level, students will have the opportunity to pursue a wide range of related employment opportunities. With various available jobs, students can dip their toes into a wide range of industries, such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacology, nanotechnology, teaching, and more. Chemists are in high demand in the UK, both at national and local government levels, hospitals, education, and more. Careers that will benefit from a Chemistry GCSE and A-level include, but are not limited to, the the following:
- Environmental Chemist
