Hello!

As I've always enjoyed chemistry i'm planning to study it at university. The career prospects and the fact its my strongest subject (a* at gcse) have helped me along in this decision. Reading around courses, i became interested in chemical engineering, but soon realized almost every uni had an AAB or higher entry requirement. Being pretty certain I'm not capable of this i soon binned this idea.

I'm now wondering with my predicted grades, (BBB in chemistry, maths & physics) which universities, firstly i could get into, and secondly would be best.

Finally i take business and my teacher has mentioned to me that she is certain i can get an A*, i've seen many courses with names such as "chemistry with management", are these worth looking into? Seeing as i would then be incorporating my second strongest subject, which i also enjoy.

tl;dr:

-Any way i can study chemical engineering with BBB grades?
-Good uni's to study chemistry at for BBB grades?
-Is chemistry with management or similar good for job prospects?

Thanks for any help!

Depending on your PS amongst other things the grade boundaries can be somewhat flexible at quite a few universities.

If you look here:
http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/...uide-chemistry

You can see the top universities for Chemistry according to the Guardian.

You will see Hull is 3rd with an average of 269 UCAS points for the average entry.

Seems like a good bet! (Also you might want to note the 98% employability rate, 13% higher than Oxford).

"Chemistry with" degrees can vary a lot. It can be 2 modules in total up to half your degree. In my honest opinion if I was you I would apply for straight Chemistry. (Maybe have a specialism within Chemistry.) Then if you wish to do a phd or a straight chemistry job you will be best prepared and most companies will be willing to teach you the business side of their company if they see you have a science degree.

Good luck with applying!
