13CM2

13 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 13CM1. This allows more time to be spent on the other two standards over the year to allow you longer to practise and develop your understanding. Taking this course will mean you have additional time in the NCEA exams to work on your two papers as you get 3 hours to complete 2 standards. 

Prerequisites

Students should have gained two ‘Achieved’ or above grades in the External Achievement standards from the Level 2 Chemistry (either 12CM1 or 12CM2).

OR HoD approval
