Leads To:
Chemistry (NCEA 3)

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.
