Level 3 Chemistry
Teacher in Charge: C. Northage
The course follows a similar pattern to that of Level 2, but provides for more in-depth study of the topics. These include organic chemistry, thermochemistry, equilibrium chemistry, and redox chemistry. Both theory and practical work are used to explore the ideas and concepts, while providing students with the required skills to progress into higher levels of study.
This is a recommended course for students considering tertiary study in Health Sciences, Engineering, AgriCommerce, AgriScience, Food Technology, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Veterinary Science and Technology, Dental Technology, Biomedical Science and numerous majors in a Science or Applied Science degree.
