12CM2

12 Chemistry 2

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Alayna Pulham

This course is for those students who struggle with the more abstract and mathematical concepts in Chemistry. 

One less external standard is covered over the year when compared with 12CM1 (and an additional internal to replace it). This allows more time to be spent on the other two external standards. This course is still not an easy course - during the year you will complete two external achievement standards and two internal achievement standards. 

This course will lead into 13CM2 which is a university approved course. 

Note: You cannot move from 12CM2 into 13CM1 as a pathway as you will not have covered the same content in the course as the students in 12CM1 course will have. 

Prerequisites

Students should have gained at least two ‘Achieved’ grades or above in the External Achievement Standards in Level 1 Chemistry papers from 11SD1.

A student coming from the 11SI1 course must have gained at least a Merit grade in the Science Achievement Standard (Acids and Bases standard) paper and an Achieved in one other Science standard.
