Progression Options Students who are successful at AS level may wish to complete an additional year to achieve the A level qualification, from which higher study perhaps at degree level in this or a related area is a possibility. Chemistry will support a career in a wide range of areas, including the sciences (biological, chemical, physical, geological, forensic, material, and medical) as well as engineering and environmental studies. The skills learnt whilst studying Chemistry are as important as the knowledge and are recognised by employers. It can lead to non-science related careers such as accountancy and management consultancy. It is essential for Medicine and Dentistry.
