What are your motivations to pursue a degree in chemistry? 

"I have always enjoyed learning sciences at school and how intricately chemistry explains phenomena in the world. Studying IB chemistry showed me the usefulness and real-world applications of chemistry, which I am more curious to explore at university. I also like how there is an equal amount of theoretical and practical work involved in the course. As I am not quite sure what exactly I want to do in the future, I feel that a chemistry degree offers me a range of career choices and transferable skills that will be handy in the future."
