Subjects - Chemistry

A wide range of A-level subjects currently exist, despite several being dropped for 2017. However, please remember to check which courses your sixth form or college will offer, as they are very unlikely to offer all of these subjects.

Although you should primarily choose to study what you enjoy and want a career in, certain subjects complement each other very well, so you should definitely give consideration to the mix of A-levels you will study.

Politics, philosophy and economics is a popular ‘package’ choice for aspiring politicians, much like physics, chemistry and biology is popular for those pursuing careers in science.
