  3. 3. Griffith Chem Year 11 and 12 Program Information Sheet Complete a Griffith University chemistry course while studying Year 11 and 12 school chemistry The Griffith School of Environment will offer Year 11 and 12 students the opportunity to study a Griffith University chemistry course while undertaking Senior Chemistry at your School. Griffith Chem is an excellent opportunity for students to experience a university course whilst completing their senior studies. Griffith Chem is a two year program taken over your Year 11 and 12. In the Griffith Chem program in Year 11 you will  study the content of the first half of Griffith Chem course within the normal delivery of the QSA Chemistry syllabus in your Year 11 Senior Chemistry subject. Two nominated laboratory sessions and write-ups will contribute towards Griffith Chem. All content and laboratory sessions will be undertaken at your School with your teachers  have the option of a day excursion to Griffith University to utilise practical equipment to complete an assessment in a water topic. This will be at the discretion of your School and the University  complete the stage 1 examination for Griffith Chem towards the end of Year 11. This exam will be undertaken at your School
  4. 4. Students who pass both laboratory sessions and achieve 50% or higher on the stage 1 examination will be invited to continue with the Griffith Chem program in Year 12. An administration/laboratory fee of $85 (to be reviewed before 2014) will be payable to Griffith University by students who continue with the Year 12 stage of Griffith Chem course. In the Griffith Chem course in Year 12 you will  study the content of the second half of Griffith Chem within the normal delivery of the QSA Chemistry syllabus in your Year 12 Senior Chemistry subject. This will be undertaken at your School with your teachers  attend the Griffith University campus on two days to complete Griffith Chem laboratory sessions and write-ups. Dates and times to be determined with anticipated dates in June/July  complete the end of course examination for Griffith Chem towards the end of Year 12 academic year. This will be undertaken at the University campus What does participating in Griffith Chem mean to you as the student? If you successfully complete Griffith Chem over the two years by completing the laboratory sessions and the two examinations at an overall Pass or better, you will be awarded a formal Certificate of Completion by Griffith University. If you then enrol in a Griffith University degree program you will be eligible for credit for your first semester, first year, Griffith University chemistry course, either 1001ENV Chemistry, 1013ENV Chemistry in Biological Systems 1, or 1101BPS Chemistry A providing that course is a core requirement in your degree. (Once enrolled at Griffith you apply for credit based on your Griffith Chem success. The Certificate of Completion will be your documentary evidence to support your credit application). In addition, if you have done very well in Griffith Chem, by achieving an overall Pass or better for laboratory sessions and achieving a percentage of 65% or better for the end of program examination, and meet the entry admission pre-requisites into a Science or Environment program as nominated by Griffith University, you will be eligible for guaranteed acceptance into your selected program on the proviso that you list that program as your first QTAC preference. You will also be granted specified credit for 1001ENV Chemistry 1013ENV Chemistry in Biological Systems 1 or 1101BPS Chemistry A.
  5. 5. Please be assured that the undertaking of Griffith Chem along with your Senior Chemistry subject will in no way be detrimental to the class results of all students. The Griffith Chem program is an example of the collaborative outreach work that Griffith University and schools within the region are undertaking that provide positive outcomes to students, schools and the University. For more information about the Griffith Chem program please contact either: your chemistry teacher or Head of the Science Department at your School, or Ms Margie Carsburg Griffith Chem Coordinator Griffith University Telephone: 07 5552 8873 Email: m.carsburg@griffith.edu.au
