Level 3 Chemistry
At least 14 Level 2 credits.
Chemistry is for those who wish to improve their general understanding of science within the context of real life situations, and vital to those who need to continue studies in the sciences as part of their career aspirations. It is essential for the medical profession, biological sciences, food technology and engineering.
The chemistry course at level three is an extension to level two. It includes two internal assessments, one of which will be an extended practical investigation for which the students will have 10 weeks in which to research their investigation, carry out the practical part of the investigation and write up a full report on it. There will be three externally assessed standards which cover particles and thermochemical principles, organic chemistry, aqueous systems and equilibrium, and the application of each of these topics to real life situations. Experiments are undertaken throughout the course to improve understanding and develop good experimental technique.
The table below shows the credits available within the subject.
I or E * = Internal or external assessments
* This standard will be taught (time permitting) but assessed by student choice.
