    Hey guys I'm planning on studying maths, further maths, chem and phys at As level. Even outside of school i'm massively interested in all of these subjects and I was wondering how I could enrich my knowledge (specifically through the use of books) of these subjects. By enrich I mean find out much more about what I'll learn at As-level, so I really understand everything thouroughly. For example a GCSE level enrichment book would prove pythagoras's thereom so I thouroughly understand the thereom I learnt at GCSE. Also I'm thinking about studying chemistry at university and any advice on how to find work experience would be appreciated. Also or if you could give me information on something else to demonstrate my interest in the subject, such as the nuffields bursary. Thank for you help.

    Basically it enables you to do a placement at a university or company in a scientific subject, it shows you're taking a keen interest in your subject outside of academia and seeing it used in the real world. See this website for more details: http://www.nuffieldfoundation.org/sc...s-and-colleges
