Honestly, organic is so much better than physical chemistry it is ridiculous.

Physical is so boring, filled with long, monotonous maths.

Why can't Chemistry just be Organic?

Because the curriculum of Chemistry A-Level has to involve the physical aspects so that applicants to subjects such as Chemistry, Chem Eng, Chemical Physics, Materials Science etc have preparation for the subject.

Same reason why ecology is taught in A-Level Bio, it has to cater somewhat to breadth to provide for the interests of many.

Trying to name all those compounds is not my idea of fun.

I hated physical too, all throughout A levels and university, but it’s something that has to be taught and some bits of it are very useful. You can’t be a chemist without understanding the basics of physical chemistry.

Not the most fun thing in the world, naming is a mixture of educated guessing and wishing you revised naming.

But getting it right is truly an art, one I wish I had

I see, sounds interesting; what about Biochemistry?

I’ve never been interested in biology. For me it was always chemistry, specifically organic :love:

I see, my love, or future love, is of Biochemistry because it incorperates organic chemistry into a biological environment, otherwise I would just do Chemistry (the physical does scare me though!)

Beware though. There’s a girl in my research group who did a biochemistry degree and she said there’s virtually no chemistry in it. She’s been having to learn organic chemistry from scratch since joining the group.

Damn, I wish there was an organic chemistry bachelors degree...
