Leaving Certificate chemistry aims to provide a relevant course for students who will complete their study of chemistry at this level while, at the same time, providing a foundation course for those who will continue to study chemistry or related subjects following completion of their Leaving Certificate.

Chemistry is a subject which involves very active participation which include many experiments, calculations and real-life applications. Chemical reactions are all around us and chemistry help us make sense of the world around us.

This syllabus is for students in the senior cycle of post-primary education and is assessed at Ordinary and Higher levels.
