Year 13 Chemistry (13CHE)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs F. Aiyaaz


At least 14 credits from the Chemistry NCEA Level 2 external Achievement Standards including achievement at merit level in two externals. The HOD Chemistry may allocate 13CHEZ or 13CHE based on pre-requisites.

This course is the two external and three internal course. Choosing this course is more suited to students who passed Level 2 Chemistry yet struggled in the external papers. Chemistry credits and knowledge are still the focus for University Entrance, and builds upon the knowledge and skills acquired in Level 2 Chemistry to extend the students’ understanding of chemical phenomena. Practical work is an integral part of the course. Calculations, equation writing and abstract concepts are involved. The reduced external course will not cover aqueous systems.

 Students may alternatively choose (or be directed into 13CHEE Chemistry advanced (three externals and two internals) based on Year 12 grades.
