After you apply
You will be asked to complete an online test to assess your numerical skills and how you apply your knowledge to chemical problems. We ask you to do this as we want our students to get off to the best possible start when they join us. The test allows us to see a more complete picture of your skills than your predicted grades alone. We can also find out more about why you want to study with us. Offers are made on the basis of the entry requirements, information in your UCAS application and the outcome of the online test.
