Malaysia has many reputable international schools that offer quality education at every level of a pupil’s life, from preschool all the way to A Level. When making a choice of which school to enrol in, do consider the type of syllabus that’s right for your child. Also an important consideration is to choose a programme or curriculum that’s recognised by tertiary education institutions that you may already be planning for. Many choose programmes such as the IGCSE since it is widely recognised the world over.   A Guideline To Applying To International Schools Malaysia   Step 1: Submit an application to the

Thinking of checking out some international schools in Malaysia as a study destination? That’s an excellent choice, with plenty of good reasons to boot. Ranked by UNESCO as the 11th most preferred study destination in the world, Malaysia is fast developing into an education hub that offers high quality education at a fraction of the cost compared to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and in Europe. From preschool to high school offering IGCSE syllabus right up to A Level tertiary education institutions, Malaysia is a setting for world class education standards. It has become one of the top

Academic grades are no longer enough; education must be enriched with practical skills for pupils to flourish in their future careers. Technological and economic advances are shaping our world at an incomprehensibly rapid pace, especially when it comes to artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, genetic engineering, algorithms and biology. Such developments mean that today’s pupils young need to complete school and university with more than a selection of academic qualifications. Grades are no longer enough for young people to thrive in modern careers, which often require increasingly demanding digital and practical skills. The Telegraph in the UK has reported that:

Chemistry-Rates Of Reactions Topic

This term took an interesting turn in Y10 and Y12 Chemistry, as well as Y9 Science. The year groups were simultaneously studying the same topic: Rates of reactions. It was also another opportunistic moment to differentiate the same topic over three levels. With Y9, the topic was mostly differentiated to allow students explore the factors affecting rates in terms of concentration, temperature, surface area with relevance to understanding the type of experiments related and collisions at a superficial level. 

The Y10 took the ideas on rates further with relation to collision theory and Activation energy as a way to explain how these factors affected the rates of reactions, while further evaluating errors related to the experimental procedure. The engated with photochemical reactions as well.  

The Y12 had to draw on their previous topic, energetics (energy profile diagrams) to explain the role of catalysts on rates of reactions, and use initial rates to determine the integrated rate law and orders of reactions. 

All these ideas had a common factor, a set of apparatus (pic attached): a gas syringe, conical flask and stopwatch which added a profitable experience in understanding the world of Chemistry!
