All Level 2 Chemistry External Achievement standards must have been attempted.
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
organic chemistry, spectroscopy, thermochemical principles and acids and bases.
Practical work is an essential part of this course and it will develop your problem-solving
skills and proper laboratory technique. One of the internal standards is a practical
Investigation and you will learn how to apply chemical principles and develop essential
This course is an approved UE course.
