Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs P. Afele

Level 2 Chemistry looks in detail at the chemistry we see around us and explains everyday concepts. There is a strong emphasis on practical work which is used to illustrate and clarify the material presented in class. Students take an active part in their own learning. Level 2 Chemistry is an essential step towards studying Chemistry at both Level 3 and at a tertiary level.
