After ended course the student will have achieved competence to proceed on courses with chemistry requirements.
Required prerequisite knowledge
Recommended previous knowledge
|Written exam and laboratory exercise||1/1||4 hours||A - F||Specified printed and hand-written means are allowed. Definite, basic calculator allowed. |
To get a pass mark in general chemistry one should get a pass mark both in laboratory evaluation and in theoretical exams. Pass mark in the lab evaluation is given on the basis of the student's laboratory portfolio that includes the following: The laboratory part counts 25% of the final marks.
The grade on the laboratory exercises is bases on map evaluation which includes: 7 reports and analysis of unknown sample. The unknown sample counts as one report. Each part of these evaluations has to be passed.
If the the laboratory excersizes is evaluated to a non-passing grade, the students can redo these in the next ordinary term for the subject.

Because of limited laboratory capacity the course will, from autumn 2008, only be available for students admitted to a study program where the course is mandatory or as a recommended elective.
This according to § 3-7, point 5, within rules for Universities and University Colleges.
Students that do not have the course in their original study plan but wish to take this course have to apply to the Head of Department responsible for this course. Applications should be submitted following the guidelines for applications for admission to individual courses.
Curriculum is based, but on not limited to the book, in addition to all handouts, information given in lectures or on Canvas.
