Placement PreTest for CVC Honors Chemistry
CVC Honors Chemistry is a very rigorous and intense course that requires excellent math and wordproblem solving skills. This pretest is not mandatory in order to register for Honors Chemistry but having your student complete the test could be helpful in determining whether his/her math skills are on par with what is needed to be successful in the course. A student should be able to complete the test in the allotted time and following the directions of each section and have at least 11/13 correct at the end of the pretest. ~with thanks to the RSC and High Point University
