Placement Pre-Test for CVC Honors Chemistry
CVC Honors Chemistry is a very rigorous and intense course that requires excellent math and word-problem solving skills. This pre-test 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 pre-test. ~with thanks to the RSC and High Point University
