2022/2023 Chemistry Scheme Of Work For SS3

Chemistry scheme of work

This chemistry scheme of work for SS3 (Senior secondary school three) provided by myschoolpress is the same for both private and public secondary schools in Nigeria, we hereby urge all secondary school principals and teachers in Nigeria to make use of the approved scheme of work as the only scheme approved by the ministry of education

We here bring it to your notice that this scheme of work is now available for all S3 secondary school chemistry teachers in Nigeria. This article mainly focuses on the chemistry scheme of For the sake of this post as regards the government-approved scheme of work for Chemistry SS 3 first term and second term only as we all know that students will be writing their senior secondary school certificate examination therefore there will be no 3rd term for SS 3 class

Chemistry teachers will find this post useful to them because the post mainly focuses on government-approved schemes of work for ss3 Chemistry. This provides in detail what is expected by WAEC, NECO, JAMB and all other exam bodies in preparing chemistry students for their external exams

As an educationist we understand that there should be a continuation from the previous class for students to better understand the subject, therefore, this scheme of work for Chemistry for SS 3 first term provided here is a continuation from SS 2 3rd term chemistry scheme of work. S this scheme of work has been systematically arranged for better and proper understanding for students in SS 3.

WAEC and other exam bodies in Nigeria make use of the government-approved scheme of work for all subjects offered in senior secondary school and to be in line with the directive from the ministry of education, all senior secondary schools in Nigeria must utilize the same scheme of work whether it is a private or government owned secondary schools.

To further on this article, this scheme of work, this scheme is used to ensure that the learning purposes such as aims and objectives for a particular class are achieved not only it is also a complete guide on all academic activities implemented by the ministry of education on all senior secondary schools in Nigeria as it is the integer to the subjects and academic session
