If you are interested in taking a Chemistry-related course at University, it's encouraged to also partake in wider reading of the subject you wish to go into. I've assembled a collection of books/science journals and found the absolute cheapest price on Amazon if you wanna read them. This is also useful if you are undecided on where you would like to go in the future: now is your chance to have a look what the subject area is like!

(In the past, I've read Bad Science and it's really good Would defo recommend!)

If anyone has any recommendations for books, whether that be Chemistry related, or related to another subject - please do reply/message me and I'll be sure to share them!

current oxford student here- the best possible book to prepare for interviews and to introduce you to undergrad chem topics is why do chemical reactions happen. other than this, the series of oxford chemistry primers has been really helpful during my time here, so maybe start to browse through those (there are around 100 so just pick a few that interest you). also something to note is that popular science are just as, if not more, valuable indicators of passion on a personal statement than textbooks, so i would recommend checking out the chem section in waterstones/blackwells etc
