Preliminary Chemistry

Each Preliminary Chemistry term will give students:

  • A thorough understanding of all course materials during the Theory component of every lesson.
  • Practise questions of that week’s content under the guidance of an experienced, highly-performing tutor during the Problem Based Class (PBC) ┬ácomponent of every lesson.
  • Revision and consolidation through practise questions of everything learnt during that term so far during the Tutorial component of every lesson.
  • The opportunity for 1-on-1 time with the tutor to ask questions and discussions about school homework, self-study and clarification of any concepts in the lesson.
  • A lesson specifically dedicated to practical activites/experiments and data processing skills each term to ensure students have a deep understanding of the relevant applications and uses of the theoretical material learnt in each topic.
