    What exactly do you mean by having an 'eye for attention to detail'? Many A-Level subjects are replete with 'detail'..

    I am at peace with intricate concepts, that would otherwise topple typical students...

    Thats one way of saying you pick up on things with ease, but its less to do with if you can do them, its more if you want to do them, I know before I posted

    But thinking about it, I could have done A Level Geography or History based on the fact I'm good at remembering stuff, but I didn't coz I wouldn't enjoy the material, what I said is still true, you need to be good at maths to some degree, and a good memory helps, there are lots of equations on extraction transition metals, ozone depletion, how to make esters, aldehydes, acyl chlorides ect, and not to mention mechanisms, so there is a lot to remember, but if that doesn't appeal to you, then it won't make a good choice, and if it does, by all means go for it.

    Go for it.. I think A-Level Chemistry is more about understanding than memorising. If the understanding is there then memorising shouldn't be a big deal.

    Well, I can look at things from an 'intrinsic, and mechanical' perspective. Does that help?

    A level chemistry (and any science) is for anybody who is genuinely interested and works to get concepts and understand material, apply knowledge rather than simply memorize question papers and mark schemes.
