Higher Chemistry (Evening)

This course aims to provide successful performance in the Higher Chemistry National Course.

The Higher qualification in Chemistry extends learners’ knowledge and understanding of the physical and natural environments, through a wide range of studies including chemical reaction rates, enthalpy and patterns in the Periodic Table.

If English is not your first language, for study at SCQF level 6 you must be able to demonstrate English language skills at that level (e.g. SQA Higher level or IELTS 6). 

Course content

The Course develops greater knowledge of bonding, structure and properties, and of the mole, and enables learners to acquire enhanced understanding of carbon compound reactions, nomenclature and structural formulae, and of polymers and natural products. They will also study Hess’s Law, equilibrium, acids and bases, redox reactions, and nuclear chemistry.

Entry requirements (minimum)

  • For SCQF 6 subjects (Higher) we require an A or B pass at National 5 or A or B at Intermediate 2 in Chemistry.
  • Due to the high level of challenge presented by National Courses, and the significant demand for this programme, please note that the above represents minimum entry requirements. Our selection processes will also take into account the breadth of subjects studied previously.
