Chemistry NCEA 2
Course DetailsLevel 2 Optional 20-26 Credits
Purpose:To prepare students for entry into NCEA Level 3 Chemistry Course. Chemical analysis. Organic chemistry. Atomic Structure and Bonding. Chemical Reactivity. Energetics. This course contributes towards the National Certificate in Science (Level 2). Chemistry level 2 is an intellectually demanding course requiring excellent study skills, the ability to ignore distractions in class, good literacy and mathematical abilities and good revision skills. Many of the concepts and knowledge needed require students to work independently. The ideal student has a mature and self motivated attitude to their studies. Success in this course requires a genuine interest in Chemistry as a subject and Sciences as a whole. This course leads directly to Chemistry level 3.
Entry Requirements:14 credits (including AS90940 and AS90944 from SCG1 or SCE1, AS91027 MAG1/MAE1 strongly recommended and HOF/TIC approval.
Course Contribution:$20 workbook (non refundable) may be required
