JC Chemistry Term 3 Crash Courses

There are only about 4 more weeks to Prelims, and 8 more weeks to Promos!

 

It's not too late to catch up now to prepare for these important exams!

There are two separate offerings of crash courses for H2 Chemistry during term 3 of the school year. These will be great jumping off points to lock down key concepts, before joining regular tuition classes, which will further ensure consistency.

The first course is designed to help students fully understand the key topics of JC Chemistry, which include core topics of Chemical Bonding, Energetics, Kinetics, and Acid-Base Equilibria.

These topics lay the foundation for why elements and compounds appear, as well as behave, the way they do. A good understanding of these topics is necessary for students to develop an intuitive sense of how and why certain reactions occur, and why others don't.

Besides Physical Chemistry topics, the other big topic for JC Chemistry is Organic Chemistry. The crash course for organic chemistry will be offered as a separate module, and will aim to develop skills in recognising key features in different organic molecules, and therefore predict the kinds of reactions that they will undergo.

Term 3 Crash Course

To facilitate a safe but still extremely effective learning environment, 2020 crash courses will be conducted online. Please refer to details here.

This course will cover the often overlooked chapters of Chemical Bonding and The Periodic Table. Six other key Physical Chemistry topics of Energetics, Kinetics, Chemical Equilibria, Acid-Base Equilibria, Solubility Equilibria, and Electrochemistry will also be included. These topics are crucial for both JC1 students preparing for their Promotional Exams, as well as JC2 students who are still trying to lock down concepts from these topics.

During each lesson, Chung will highlight key concepts, as well as strategies for answering typical kinds of questions. Class sizes will be small such that Chung will be able to point out mistakes and problems to each student individually.

 
Time Commitment

Students who are signing up for this course should be prepared to spend about 5 to 6 hrs per topic (including the 2-hr in-class time):

  • Students will be expected to watch 1.5 to 2 hrs of videos for each of the topics before class. As they watch the videos, they will  go through between 8 to 12 questions that will help them review key concepts and skills related to the topic.

  • They will then attend the 2-hr tutorials. Chung will first clear any questions they have from the videos and review notes, and then continue to drill questions to lock down key concepts and skills.

Fees

  • Students can sign up for individual topics at $120 per topic.

  • This includes the 2-hr LIVE interactive tutorial lessons, plus at least another 1.5 hrs of on-demand video lectures for a total of 3.5 hrs of content time.

  • $450 (6% discount) if signed up for FOUR topics.

  • $860 (10% discount) if signed up for full-course of EIGHT topics.

  • A $120 non-refundable deposit will be collected (by PayNow / PayLah / bank transfer) at the time of registration. This will be applied to the course fees on completion of the registered lessons. The balance of the fees will be collected (by PayNow / PayLah / bank transfer) one day before the start of the first topic.

  • Fees are non-refundable, and there will not be a possibility of make-up classes for the crash courses. If a student cannot attend a lesson for good reason, they will be allowed to make-up the lesson during one of the regular 2-hr lessons. This should be completed before the end of August 2020, or the fees for the missed lesson will be forfeited.

Overall Methodology at Chemistry Domus
  • Key concepts will be explained and then reinforced by doing actual exam questions.

  • Individual mistakes will be pointed out. These mistakes often include the use of wrong concepts, common pitfalls, and poor presentation of answers.

  • Students can also clarify doubts after lessons.
