Doc Brown's Chemistry  The Irish Junior Certificate Science-CHEMISTRY for the Irish Ordinary Level and Higher Level Science Syllabuses

My unofficial support for the CHEMISTRY of this syllabus - Each topic or unit is linked to potentially useful sections on this site for the ordinary level chemistry course

[ALL LINKS SHOULD WORK IF THIS PAGE IS SAVED] [Each link opens up in a new window]

 PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING VERY CAREFULLY

 My notes and quizzes were primarily written for UK based KS3 Science and GCSE/IGCSE courses but users from all over the English speaking world regularly use the site, so I do my best to link up with other 'international' courses. The Irish Junior Certificate Science course doesn't quite fit the UK KS3/GCSE courses, but there is sufficient overlap to provide series of 'on-site' links to potentially helpful sections I have written so far. I do not have time to give extended email responses and I do not deal in past papers and it is up to the student to decide whether the material 'fits' and 'useful'. All students should have a copy of the syllabus.
