Why study IB Chemistry?

Chemistry is the science of matter and its transformations. The principles of chemistry help to explain how particles interact with each other at the atomic level and, ultimately, takes you one step closer to understanding the “building blocks of life”.

IB Super International Baccalaureate Chemistry is a two-year course taught by expert IB chemistry tutors. Students in Singapore will be able to develop investigation and higher order thinking skills related to chemistry.

Topics to be covered:

The following are the topics that we cover in our comprehensive two-year course:

  • Stoichiometric relationships
  • Atomic structure
  • Periodicity
  • Chemical bonding and structure
  • Energetics/thermochemistry
  • Chemical kinetics
  • Equilibrium
  • Acids and bases
  • Redox processes

Topics for the additional high level (AHL) include the following:

  • Further Atomic structure
  • The periodic table—the transition metals
  • Chemical bonding and structure
  • Energetics/thermochemistry
  • Chemical kinetics
  • Equilibrium
  • Acids and bases
  • Redox processes
  • Organic chemistry
  • Measurement and analysis

Options include:

  • Energy
  • Materials
  • Medicinal chemistry
  • Biochemistry

Unlike the A levels students, whose grades are solely dependent on the exams they sit at the end of two years, IB students are assessed both internally and externally. They will be externally tested through a written exam at the end of their IB course as well as an investigation they have to carry out. They will be then internally tested via an experiment that is created and executed by them. This takes up 20% of the final score. By attempting the Chemistry internal assessment, students get the opportunity to apply chemistry to the real world and develop their attributes in the IB learner profile.

IA topic

Students have to choose an IA topic on an area of the syllabus which commensurates with the level of chemistry that is taken. For example, a Higher Level Chemistry student will have to carry out their investigation based on a Higher Level topic. Although teachers do not discourage students from doing an IA topic based on syllabus beyond the IB curriculum, it is not necessary for students to go beyond the IB curriculum to score a level 7 (highest grade ) for IB Chemistry.

Why choose IB Super?

At IB Super’s IB Chemistry and HL Tuition, we are continuously striving for the betterment of our students. In light of these efforts, we have developed a structured approach for students so that they can learn all the core concepts of chemistry in a systematic way.

  • Effective tutors

    One of the biggest reasons you could have for selecting IB Super is that we have highly skilled and effective teachers who are well versed in the IB curriculum. The tutors are certified experts in their field, with a dedication to helping students succeed. Moreover, we love to encourage and empower our students so that they can take initiative to excel and reach their full potential.

  • The Right Technique

    Concepts can never be learned if they are not properly taught to the students. At IB Super, our IB Chemistry and HL teachers use a proven, systematic approach to motivate students and grow their confidence.

  • Assessment and Evaluation

    We frequently assess our students to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Such evaluations are carried out on a periodic basis. This enables us to better understand what the student needs assistance with to obtain the best results.

  • Student Engagement

    To spark students’ learning, a thought-provoking question, simple demonstration, or a video followed by a discussion will be presented during class. This helps students to fully engage in their learning and deepen their understanding of the subject.

At IB Super International Baccalaureate Chemistry Tuition Singapore, students will be provided with maximum opportunities to learn the concepts of chemistry. We want to guide each of our students into doing the best they can and realising their dreams!

We meticulously tailor our curriculum and learning materials to every student and their needs, and use interactive teaching approaches to ensure they are interested and absorbing all of our lessons. Our tailored methods deepen comprehension and aid in out-of-the-box thinking, so that they’ll be able to discover their fullest potential.
