Teacher in Charge: Miss A. Pulham

This course is for those students who struggle with the more abstract and mathematical concepts in Chemistry. One less standard is covered over the year when compared with 12CM1. This allows more time to be spent on the other two standards. 

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