National 1

Though there will be National 1 courses produced, equivalent to Access 1, these are rarely used in mainstream schools. On this website Level 1 will refer to courses normally taught to 11/12 year old pupils in first year of Secondary school.

- KS3 || - K9

National 2

Though there will be National 2 courses produced, equivalent to Access 2, these are rarely used in mainstream schools. On this website Level 2 will refer to courses normally taught to 12/13 year old pupils in second year of Secondary school.

- KS3 || - K9

National 3

Though National 3 Qualifications may be used with older pupils, the content is very much at the Introduction to Chemistry level and could be used with pupils S1-S3 (11 - 14yrs).

- KS3 || - K9

National 4

National 4 is the beginning of more specialised Chemistry teaching. Internally assessed mainly. Pupils S3/4 (14/15yrs).

- KS3 || - K9

National 5

Is a specialised Chemistry course designed to take pupils onto Higher level. Externally assessed. Pupils S3/4 (14/15/16yrs).

- KS4 || - K10


This is the specialised Chemistry course which provides the entrance requirement for many Further Education courses. S5 (16/17 years).

- AS || - K11

Advanced Higher

This overlaps with early stages of Degree courses. Though not essential, this course is aimed at those seriously considering studying Chemistry or related subjects at University. S6 (17/18 years).

- A2 || - K12

Mixed Bag

I'll use this for resources that are not specifically aimed at any particular course and may well be simply for fun.

Regular Users

If you are a regular user of this website, and any of the Resources that I have personally produced, you may like to make a small donation.

Searching For Resources

At the moment, the Search Engine will search all of my websites so expect most hits to be for the older version of my website until I have completely transferred all the resources over.

N5ChemTutor App

N5ChemTutor for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Apple Store Download Badge


Monday, 11 Sep 2017

I'm presently writing Topic 5 - Calculations and Topic 6 - Acids and Bases (working titles, may change).

At that point I'll be rebranding the App as N5ChemTutor1 and will start charging a modest fee for the App. If I achieve sufficient sales, then I will be able to start on N5ChemTutor2.

Monday, 01 May 2017

N5ChemTutor App (1.4.1) is under review and should appear on App store in next few days.
This included Topic 4 - Structure & Bonding

Good luck to those sitting Chemistry Exams on 8th May!

This included Topic 1 - Reaction Rates and Investigation Skills


Welcome to (hopefully) the final version of my newest website.

Like my previous website the intention is to use this website as a means of accessing various resources I have created or collected for use with my pupils.

I am more than happy for other Teachers or Students to make use of these resources as well.

New Courses:

A major driving force behind the creation of this new website is the fundamental changes taking place over the next few years in Scotland.

The shift to the new National Courses is a trigger for me to go back and re-evaluate, reorganise and repackage some of my existing resources.

Over the next few years, barring further health problems, I should also be creating many new resources or, at least, new versions. This, I've already started.

New or amended resources will only appear on this website. Resources from the old website that I feel are still relevant will be shifted over.

New Devices:

The rise in popularity of Tablets & Smartphones requires a fundamental change in the way my Website needs to be laid out and the method of presenting many resources.

As an avid user of Flash, it will require probably years to acquire programming skills in alterternatives, but, in the interim, I can convert some of my existing resources into Videos - with an unfortunate loss in quality.

Ever increasing reliance on Videos requires the production of multiple formats to ensure compatibility with the range of devices being used.

Page Listing:

These are listing to pages, in both this website ( Int ) or one of my other websites ( Ext ), that I expect to be most useful to my own pupils.
