L3 Chemistry

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Kent

Level 3 Chemistry

Analytical analysis of organic compounds is a fundamental skill necessary in all aspects of organic chemistry including biochemistry, medicine, pharmacy, environmental science

Chemistry seeks to understand the world around us at the atomic level. By using modern analytical tools and interpreting the outcomes, we are better able to make informed decisions.

Organic Chemistry is fundamental to a range of professional and exciting careers and Chemistry students should develop sufficient scientific awareness and skills to be able to engage with these areas and nurture further interest in them.

Students then go on to take an in-depth look at Thermochemistry and chemical processes such as reduction-oxidation reactions, and chemistry in the world around us.
