Intermediate 1 Chemistry

Intermediate 1 Chemistry

The Intermediate 1 qualification in Chemistry provides learners with the opportunity to see the physical and natural environments through the eyes of chemistry.

It develops knowledge of chemical facts, theories and symbols, while giving learners skills in solving chemical problems, and performing chemical techniques and investigations. Through practical work, learners will develop the ability to record measurements and observations, analyse experimental information, draw conclusions, and evaluate procedures with supporting argument.

The course encourages learners to be open-minded and recognise alternative points of view. They will learn that they can take decisions which affect people and their environment.

The Intermediate 1 Chemistry Course is at SCQF level 4.
