Chemistry Placement Exam Preparation


    Students who wish to take higher level courses in chemistry should note that credit for two terms of general chemistry is an essential prerequisite to enrolling in higher level courses. Although there are several ways of obtaining such credit, the majority of our students do so by obtaining credit for Chemistry 5 and Chemistry 6, and much of this site's information is presented in that context. It is also worth noting that Chemistry 5, which requires Mathematics 3, is offered in fall and winter terms, and Chemistry 6 is offered in the fall and spring terms.

    In addition, there is a one-term honors general chemistry course, Chemistry 10, offered only in the fall, for especially well-prepared, first-year students. Admission to Chemistry 10 is based on performance on the Chemistry Placement exam given during the First-Year Orientation. Adequate mathematics preparation, equivalent to Mathematics 3, is also required for admission to Chemistry 10.
