LEVEL 2 CHEMISTRY – L2CHEM

Learning Area: Science
Qualification: NCEA Level 2

Chemistry is the study of change. Students will gain an understanding of the composition and properties of the materials that make up our universe. They will study the changes matter undergoes and the energy involved. They will develop an understanding of theories used to explain observations about chemical systems. Level 2 Chemistry supports careers in nursing, primary industry e.g. wine making and manufacturing. It also lays the foundation for success in Chemistry at Level 3 and beyond, particularly if you are considering engineering, health, veterinary environmental science or food science pathways.
