Cambridge Pre-U Chemistry offers a practical and theoretical approach to the teaching of chemistry, developing learners' ability to solve chemical problems in varied contexts. Written with progression to university chemistry in mind, this course highlights the principles that unify the subject and seeks to examine them through their application to chemical situations.
It equips learners with a coherent base of transferable skills and key knowledge suitable for future study and employment in chemistry and related fields (e.g. medicine, engineering, applied sciences) whilst providing thought-provoking material that may appeal to those who do not wish to pursue a scientific career.
We have made some changes to the wording and layout of the front covers of our question papers to reflect the new Cambridge International branding and to make instructions clearer for candidates.
You will see these changes on live question papers from June 2020 and therefore we have made these changes on the specimen materials for this syllabus. The specimen questions and mark schemes remain the same.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
