To ensure that all students entering Intermediate Chemistry (CHEM2) have the prerequesite knowledge equivalent to CHEM1101 and CHEM1102.
A summary of the syllabus is available.
How the Course Works
This course is web based which means that you can do it wherever you are and at any time you like between now and mid-February provided you have internet access. The course is self-taught through 3 worksheets, provided here. These worksheets enable you to develop and test your own understanding. When you have mastered this material there is an online, open book Supplementary Course Test for you to do. This test can be repeated as many times as you like: once you have mastered the material you will be able to enrol in Intermediate Chemistry units.
Enrolling in Intermediate Chemistry (CHEM2)
This information is only for students that have completed CHEM1001 and CHEM1002 or CHEM1108 and CHEM1109 and wish to enrol in 2nd year Chemistry!
- You will not be able to enrol in Chem 2 without a signed 'Special Permission Form'.
- Once you have completed the Supplementary Course Test, you will be able to download a certificate. You should print this out and attached it to a completed copy of the Special Permission Form. Bring it to the Second Year Chemistry coordinator (Dr Richard Payne (R.Payne@chem.usyd.edu.au, School of Chemistry) for his signature.
- The signed form can then be taken to the Faculty of Science Enquiry counter (level 2, Carslaw) to complete your enrolment in CHEM2.
- Although enrolment can be completed at the very begining of semester we would appreciate your early enrolment. (If you need added incentive, remember that the queues at the Faculty Office are shorter before the start of semester).
