Study + experiments + observations = chemistry success

Oxidants, reductants and redox reactions are all in a day’s work for an average Year 12 chemistry student.

As they prepare for their upcoming internal, each student studies fastidiously, learning the skills they need to balance equations, carry out practical experiments and use the observations gained to determine the solutions of an altered equation.

Redox reactions aren’t as simple as putting 1+1, it requires a deeper level of thinking and perception to fully gain an understanding of the topic. Nevertheless, each Year 12 chemist uses their brainpower to do this and bag three Excellence credits.
