At Year 13 (Level 3) the topics are: Spectoscopic Analysis, Oxidation-Reduction Processes, Thermochemistry, Organic Chemistry and Equilibrium Processes.
At year 12 various fundamental chemistry concepts are introduced at year 13 the fundamental ideas are broadened and generalised.
A good understanding of Chemistry underpins much of our modern way of life and is a requirement for further study in a variety of subject areas.
