Students who do not have a minimum of 70% in Ontario grade 12 chemistry or equivalent may write an assessment test in order to see if their background in chemistry is sufficiently strong to succeed in CHEM 1F92. The test takes approximately 90 minutes to write. There is no cost for writing the test. Students must achieve 70% or higher on the assessment test in order to be admitted into CHEM 1F92, if they do not have a minimum of 70% in Ontario grade 12 chemistry.
Assessment Test Schedule(2013):
The assessment test will be administered at Brock University several times throughout the month of August. Dates will be posted soon. Please contact Prof. H. Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
FIRST YEAR CHEMISTRY
I. Topics Covered
II. Sample Questions
The questions given in the sections below are representative of the kinds of questions that appear on the assessment test to determine if students have sufficient Chemistry to succeed in CHEM 1F92. Actual questions on the exam each year will vary.
The best way to study for this exam is to use your Chemistry textbook or a Chemistry Study Guide and work the problems/answer questions at the end of each chapter in the textbook you have chosen. You cannot learn how to do chemistry by looking at the answers someone else has provided!
Pay special attention to definitions and concepts. If you don't know what the words mean, you can't work the problem!
Questions on the Equivalency Exam are not equally weighted. Some are more complex than others, and the marks on each question reflect this.
A. Sample Questions: Basic Math
B. Sample Questions: The Periodic Table
C. Sample Questions: Chemical Compounds
D. Sample Questions: Chemical Reactions
E. Sample Questions: Chemical Calculations
