Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Chemistry A similar course in the Swedish upper secondary school.

Intended learning outcomes

Following completing this course the student will be able to:

  • carry out experimental investigations in a satisfactory manner for safety and with satisfactory accuracy and processing, report and interpret results and present work orally and in writing.
  • use the periodic table to describe the structure of the atom and predict similarities and differences in the basic chemical properties
  • discuss how electromagnetic radiation interacts with matter
  • describe how models for different types of chemical bonding based on the electronic structure of atoms and relate the properties to the binder type and strength as well as to the substance's structure.
  • interpret, write and use formulas for chemical compounds and reactions, and thus integrating stoichiometric reasoning, and perform simple calculations
  • interpret singular pi change in chemical reactions and the use of singular pi change to discuss the driving force of a reaction.
  • use the concepts of oxidation and reduction of spontaneous and non spontaneous reactions.
  • identify common strong and weak acids and bases, perform simple pH calculations and use the concept of neutralization in the stoichiometric calculations.
  • discuss equilibria in the buffer effect.
  • describe various elements, compounds and modern materials, their characteristics and cycles and their importance.
  • relate the knowledge of chemistry to the global environmental impact
  • use knowledge of chemistry in daily and technological context

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2,0 fup, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 7,0 fup, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Written examination (TEN1, 7 credits) with grades A-F

Passed control formulations give bonuses at exam time, therefore only the first exam time. Passed laboratory exercises and thoroughly conducted laboratory reports, which shall be in the computer as a tool (LAB1; 2 credits) with grades P / Q. Laboratory work can be performed only when the course is scheduled. Lab reports must be submitted during the time course is in progress and as directed in the course PM.  Final grade based on the grade on the exam. Grading System A-F.

Other requirements for final grade

Exam 1; 7 ECTS

Lab 1; 2 ECTS

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
