Description: Chemistry is a pivotal science as it provides an understanding of the scientific method and the scientific basis of today’s world. A course in chemistry is also of great value in the service function it provides to other fields of study such as engineering, biology, medicine, nursing, food sciences, pharmacy, oceanography and environmental sciences.

Chemistry is the science of change that affects virtually all other scientific disciplines and is essential to many new technological developments. Chemistry is a physical science and as such places great stress on mathematics and physics. Thus, a student planning a career in chemistry is advised that performance in these disciplines should be above average.
