    Expectations

    Learner booklets are on the individual class team and paper copies are used in class. There is an expectation for self-studying which is a skill that should be developed for higher/further education

    This course is assessed by 3 progress assessments as well as a final exam. Learners will also have to complete a project of their choice based on a course topic.

     

    Progression Routes

    Advanced Higher Chemistry is a required subject for courses such as Medicine, Pharmacy and Veterinary medicine. It is recommended for those who wish to study Chemistry/forensics/chemical engineering.

    It also would benefit anyone who plans to follow a career in a STEM subject, has an interest in chemistry or enjoys the subject.
