O & A Level Chemistry Curriculum Singapore

Stills001

As students embark on their educational journey, the worlds of O Level and A Level chemistry open up before them, offering a structured and comprehensive exploration of the fascinating realm of science. These syllabuses are carefully crafted to nurture a profound understanding of chemical principles, critical thinking, and practical skills. Let’s delve into the distinctive features of both syllabuses to grasp the essence of each.

O Level Chemistry Syllabus

Assessment Objective A: Knowledge with Understanding

In this segment, candidates are encouraged to display their knowledge and understanding of scientific facts, theories, vocabulary, and more. Whether it’s deciphering scientific phenomena or comprehending the implications of scientific applications, this objective forms the bedrock of chemical knowledge.

Assessment Objective B: Handling Information and Solving Problems

The ability to handle, interpret, and analyze information is a cornerstone of scientific exploration. Candidates are tasked with translating data, predicting outcomes, and proposing hypotheses. This objective fosters the growth of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Assessment Objective C: Experimental Skills and Investigations

The practical aspect of science takes center stage here. Candidates engage in hands-on experiences, making observations, measurements, and evaluations. Planning investigations, suggesting improvements, and mastering experimental techniques are vital components of this objective.

A Level Chemistry Syllabus

Core Ideas and Extension Topics

The A Level syllabus is structured around Core Ideas—Matter, Structure and Properties, and Transformation—forming the bedrock upon which the study of chemical systems is built. Extension Topics take these core concepts and delve into diverse chemical systems like organic compounds and transition elements, broadening students’ perspectives.

Practices of Science

The scientific approach is instilled through the Practices of Science, fostering a mindset of inquiry, analysis, and ethical consideration. These practices transcend specific subjects, equipping students with essential skills and attitudes shared by scientific disciplines.

Learning Experiences

Teachers are empowered to tailor learning experiences that resonate with students’ interests and abilities. By incorporating real-world contexts, experiments, and technology, the syllabus comes alive, making the study of chemistry a dynamic and engaging endeavor.

A Well-Structured Assessment Journey

O Level Assessment

The O Level assessment comprises Theory Papers (Papers 1 and 2) and a Practical Assessment (Paper 3). The theory papers encompass multiple-choice questions and structured questions that assess knowledge, problem-solving, and analytical skills. The practical assessment evaluates candidates’ practical skills, experimental prowess, and application of scientific methods.

A Level Assessment

The A Level assessment follows a comprehensive scheme consisting of four papers: Multiple Choice (Paper 1), Structured Questions (Paper 2), Free Response Questions (Paper 3), and Practical (Paper 4). These papers collectively assess students’ theoretical understanding, application of knowledge, critical thinking, and practical skills.

I improved a lot in chemistry during my time here at bright culture. The teacher was really engaging and really did a did dive into multiple chemistry concepts which was beneficial to me. This really helped in the notorious section C of the chemistry paper 2. The teacher would also any questions that I have, the classroom has a really conducive learning environment, so I wasn’t afraid to ask questions as well. Highly recommend you to come sign up

was struggling with doing chem in general because I felt that it was a subject that was really hard to score. one of my worst subjects I averaged c5 to c6 even after studying. Ms Bernice helped go thru 10 years of the tys and allowed me to clarify doubts, hence I got a b3 for o levels.

Came across it cuz I was looking for a holiday crash course to buck up my chemistry at it matched my schedule. Found it interesting how there would be different teachers for different topics and it kept the class not boring at all since everyone has a diff method of teaching. The teachers was nice and detailed and always willing to repeat when I didn’t understand and answer my questions. I like how u can opt for additional afternoon lessons just to do questions and go through cuz it’s something I rarely do on my own and it helped to make my foundation stronger. Overall a great way to get a revision of sec3 and a heads up of sec4

I thoroughly enjoyed this crash course as it allowed me to gain a better grasp and understanding of integral concepts that are very hard to pick up on. Would recommend to those who have a poor foundation and would like to build up their chemistry understandings again!

I attended the S3 / S4 Final Sprint Program at Bright Culture just before my O Levels and it helped me to revise all the topics tested in the O Level. The teacher was very patient and answered my questions. The program also came with guidebooks which explain all the concepts needed clearly 👍
