91391 Demonstrate understanding of the properties of organic compounds (5 credits, external, continues in Term 2)

Term 2
91391 Demonstrate understanding of the properties of organic compounds (5 credits, external, continuation from Term 1)
91393 Demonstrate understanding of oxidation-reduction processes (3 credits, internal).

Term 3
91390 Demonstrate understanding of thermochemical principles and the properties of particles and substances (5 credits, external)

Term 4
Revision for exams

The following standard can be completed and assessed at any time throughout the year on your own time outside of class, and it is optional whether you want to complete it or not:
