Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs R. Chand

CHEMISTRY

The study of Chemistry seeks to explain the fundamental principles of Chemistry with a
focus on properties of matter and how it reacts. In this course, you will learn about atomic
structure and bonding, organic chemistry and chemical reactivity. Practical work is an
essential part of this course and it will develop your problem-solving skills. All the internal
standards are practical assessments and in these, you will learn how to apply chemical
principles, develop essential practical skills and proper laboratory technique. 

Endorsement in Chemistry requires students to obtain a minimum of 14 Credits at least 3 of these credits from externally assessed standards and 3 credits from internally assessed standards at either Merit or Excellence level.
