Hey guys. Need to know the periodic table for Alevel? Not sure where to look?

Well go on google and search for memrise. It's free and scientifically proven it works. You need to create an account.

Next search courses and type in "The Periodic Table For Dummies." It should come up with a course by 12AKersley.

Now click on the course and then press "start learning."

P.S please follow me while your at it. After all I spent good time doing that course for you guys.

I actually knew the whole Periodic Table in Yr 7 and I hadn't even heard of the song up until a few months ago.

I do not know of an A-level course which involves learning the whole table!!!! That would be insane.... you don't even need to do that for most uni's and even then you would never need the whole thing.

You'd probably just be expected to go to Ca or maybe Ar

You will always be given a periodic table in an exam. It is what you do with it that counts, not learning it.

I know, but you do actually need to learn it if you want to do PhD or something. Plus when I won Imascientist. com I talked to some actual scientists on live chat and it really impressed them that I knew the whole thing. They also said they had to learn it for uni.

I know you are given it in the GCSE exams it takes a lot less time and really helps if yo know all the symbols and where things are placed.

Yeah, but I really want to go to Oxford and do a double degree in Chemistry and Engineering. I'm already getting A*s and my Chemistry teacher actually likes the fact I can come up with answers that involve the Periodic Table straight away. Also it helps with those questions on "Pointless." I always come up with pointless answers not many other people in my family get and two members of my family are scientists.

Good luck with that. Oxford doesn't do a degree like that. (and if I have somehow managed to miss it's existance you don't have a hope of completing both at the same time - unless you are some machine who never sleeps and can attend two lectures at once)

Hey, but they do do this, this is copied from their website course list.Chemical Engineering

Can be selected as a specialisation in the following undergraduate degrees:

Not chemistry... engineering with pipes

Oh and - with all oxford courses - the scope for specialisation is very small. You'll probably find it's a bolt on in third year, not a serious specialisation

How weird.

I've had modules specific to s and p block, dn configurations for complexation, and f block chemistry.

Don't most universities have that for inorganics?

Yup thats inorganic chem. That is (of course) in the oxford spec. You sure as hell won't find that in the engineering course (least I very much doubt you're going to cover it to any serious extent).

Materials science looks more your thing if you like engineering as well as chem

I asked my question before any of this engineering or Oxford talk began, those aspects of this thread hold neither interest nor relevance to me.

You are not the OP.

If you wish for a separate discussion start a new thread...
