CCEA qualifications in Chemistry are available at GCSE and GCE.
Chemistry helps us make sense of the world around us and connects to the main social, ethical and cultural issues affecting our lives today. It cultivates knowledge and understanding of the material world, the nature of science and the scientific process.
Everything we see, smell, taste, touch and hear involves chemistry and chemicals. We experience chemical reactions each day, for example when we breathe, cook and exercise. Studying chemistry helps explain these reactions. It also teaches us how to be objective and how to reason and solve problems.
Chemistry has close links with physics, biology and mathematics, providing a wide-reaching base of scientific knowledge that brings career opportunities in science, industry and commerce.
