Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Scoggins

Recommended Prior Learning


At least an achieved or above in the derived grade examination AS 90944 Acids and Bases in Level 1 Science, and merit or above in the Level 1 practical investigation. 


Chemistry Level 2

This course involves study of the key concepts of Chemistry to enable students to choose further study pathways in this specialist area. 

Chemistry study includes atomic structure, analysis of solutions, types of reactions, energy changes in reactions and organic chemistry. 

 The course is a prerequisite for L3 Chemistry and required for entry into many University and Polytechnic Course pathways.

 This course will be assessed to a selection of Achievement Standards, both internal and external, with students having the opportunity to gain up to 19 credits at Level 2.
