Level 2 Chemistry

CHE201
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms J. Carson-Iles

The Level 2 Chemistry course explores and makes sense of how substances react together and how substances can be identified by their reactions. These chemical reactions are investigated through three internal assessments. Over the course of the year you will also study Atomic Structure and Bonding, to further strengthen your understanding of Chemistry. The course has both practical and written components and builds on your skills from Level 1 Science. If you are thinking of studying Science at University, Chemistry is often a required subject.

Any questions, please see Ms Carson-Iles
