NST Part IB Chemistry A: changes to the format of the papers for May/June 2013 There are two

three-hour written papers set for Chemistry A, papers A1 and A2. Each paper will contain five questions of equal weight; candidates are required to answer all five questions. Paper A1 will contain two questions relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Introduction to Quantum Mechanics, one question relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Molecular Spectroscopy and two questions relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Symmetry and Bonding. Any question may, however, draw on material from the whole of the Chemistry A course. Paper A2 will contain three questions relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Molecular Energy Levels and Thermodynamics and two questions relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Electrons in Solids. Any question may, however, draw on material from the whole of the Chemistry A course NST Part IB Chemistry B: changes to the format of the papers for May/June 2013 There are two three-hour written papers set for Chemistry B, papers B1 and B2. Each paper will contain five questions of equal weight; candidates are required to answer all five questions. Paper B1 will contain four questions relating primarily to the material presented in Michaelmas Term and one question relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Introduction to Chemical Biology. Any question may, however, draw on material from the whole of the Chemistry B course. Paper B2 will contain four questions relating primarily to the material presented in Lent Term and one question relating primarily to the material presented in the lecture course Introduction to Chemical Biology. Any question may, however, draw on material from the whole of the Chemistry B course. Chemistry Teaching Committee 10/10/2012
