NCEA Level 2 Chemistry

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. McFarlane

Chemistry provides students with an understanding of the material world including how substances interact with each other and how we can make use of them.
L2 Chemistry is a course which builds on the acids and bases topic in  in Level 1 Science and expands into a variety of new topics.

The internals are based on practical work and the externals are theory based.

This course prepares you for Year 13 chemistry. You need this course if you are considering engineering, health sciences, veterinary or food science pathways. 

The course is complimentary and should ideally be taken with some of the other Science and Mathematics disciplines. It leads into a large variety of different career pathways. 


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

$70 (approx.) Stationery, compulsory textbooks & optional extra resources

Recommended Prior Learning

Prerequisite: At least Merit in SCI 1.5 (Acids and Bases) and 1.8 (Chemical reactivity) ALSO proven performance in the Science Department Y11 Mathematics Skills Test. Any exceptions are at the discretion of the TIC Chemistry.

Key numerical skills in Mathematics are required in L2 Chemistry. We assess this in Y11 Science  - and those students who wish to do 12 Chemistry, but of whom we have a concern, TIC Chemistry will make contact.
