IB Chemistry at Torquay Girls' Grammar

Course description

The IB programme is different to the A Level syllabus in that the topics are not studied in a modular manner. The syllabus encourages students to inquire, discuss and think critically about the issues in the broadest sense so that they become more aware of their responsibilities in society. The International nature of Chemistry is stressed - the vocabulary shared amongst scientists is universal and the collaboration between scientists working in different areas of the world is essential if we are to continue to further our understanding of matter and the influence, adverse or otherwise, which we have on our planet.

Entry requirements

For higher level, students should achieve an A grade in GCSE additional science or an A in GCSE Chemistry. For standard level, students should achieve an A grade in GCSE additional science or an A in GCSE Chemistry.
