Chemistry is one of the most fascinating and informative subjects that stretches all the way from atoms to bonds to how commercial processes occurs to make our life easy. From scientists to magicians all depends on chemistry to amaze people with their discoveries. Chemistry in International Baccalaureate (IB) in both IBDP and IB courses provides two levels of Chemistry understating with Chemistry HL (Higher Level) and Chemistry SL (Standard Level). IB is renowned for its practical approach and diverse course for better understanding to once choice. Students are assessed both internally as well as externally by their school teachers and IB moderators using a combination of examinations that contains 3 papers and an Internal assessment (IA) for both Chemistry SL and HL. Chemistry SL contains 11 units and Chemistry HL contains 11 units plus 10 extra units which are extended knowledge for 11 fundamental units. Along with this an option of one of the four optional topics need to be covered for paper 3.

Both Chemistry HL and SL students makes an IA (internal assessment) which consists of 20% of the final markings. IA is both internally as well as externally moderated by the IB. Chemistry IA is marked from 24 total points on the bases of

  • personal engagement (2 points) that includes the ideology and inspiration for the aim and study to be conducted for the IA with clear idea, justification and personal input.
  • Exploration (6 points) that includes the research question, methodology , variables , hypothesis, required chemical and analytical apparatus as well as  the background information to setup the study. It also includes safety measures and ethical implications if any.
  • Analysis (6 points) that includes keep perception and connection in the study setup as well as the hypothesis. We also include sufficient quantitative and qualitative data collected as well as correct analyzation of data.
  • Evaluation (6 points) that includes the understating and analytical connection between the study as well as the hypothesis using the data. Strengths and weakness with conclusion and discussion
  • Communication (4 points) that includes the language and understanding of clarity in which the study is written and expressed. Clear representation of data and relevant terms used.

Chemistry IAs are generally submitted in 3 drafts in which first draft accounts for proposal of the study to teacher and taking approval. In second draft all the study and analysis are written that is collected and in the final draft the IA is finalized with MLA citations and final changes for final submission.

Both Chemistry HL and SL courses consists of 3 papers

  • Paper 1 – MCQ (multiple choice questions)  which is 30 questions for SL and 40 questions for Biology HL.
  • Paper 2 – Subjective questions consisting of two sections with Section A with short question answers and Section B with Long extended type questions for both SL and HL.
  • Paper 3 – Option Paper in which there are two Sections with Section A consisting of data based and fundamental questions and Section B consists of questions from 4 optional topics from which you have to answer any one.
