IB Chemistry

About IB Chemistry

IB Chemistry HL provides students with higher-order investigative experiences and activities to promote a deeper understanding of critical concepts in Chemistry. Although IB Chemistry tends to stick very closely to the published syllabus, many questions do appear ‘out-of-syllabus’ simply because students are also required to think out of the box instead of merely regurgitating facts and figures.

The aim is to help students develop the ability to analyze scientific literature critically and to develop manipulative and experimental skills necessary to perform college level scientific investigations.

How can Prep Zone help?

Prep Zone offers premier training courses for IB Chemistry. Our individual classes are completely customisable. You decide how many sessions you want, you decide how long each session should be, you decide how frequently you would like to have sessions, and most importantly, you decide when you want the sessions. We work 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the year (except some public holidays). Sessions can be 1 hour long, or as much as 3-4 hours long – as we charge by hours. Individual sessions are ideal for focusing on stuff that you’re particularly weak at, clearing doubts, and revising practice material/mock exams.
