Chemistry is an experimental science that combines academic study with theacquisition of practical and investigational skills. It is often called the centralscience, as chemical principles underpin both the physical environment in whichwe live and all biological systems. Apart from being a subject worthy of study inits own right, chemistry is a prerequisite for many other courses in highereducation, such as medicine, biological science and environmental science andserves as useful preparation for employment.The Post-16 IB Chemistry course explores the following topic areas: Core Additional higher level (AHL)1. Stoichiometric relationships 12. Atomic structure2. Atomic structure 13. The periodic table3. Periodicity 14. Chemical bonding and structure4. Chemical bonding and structure 15.
