2. Pre-Requisites
There are no prerequisites for this subject, although it is recommended that the student have completed Chemistry in High School. Also, it is advisable that the student is familiar with the nomenclature and formulation of inorganic and organic compounds
3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession
The subject of Chemistry Foundations intends that the student deepen the understanding of the chemical concepts that he has acquired during the Baccalaureate, complete them and acquire the bases to acquire the necessary skills for their application to the practical cases that will be presented both in his future professional as when taking other subjects of the study plan.

General Chemistry is an annual basic subject, which will be taught in the first year and constitutes an essential starting point for the correct learning of other more specific subjects in the different areas of Chemistry.

8. Evaluation criteria and Grading System
Evaluation System Continuous assessment Non-continuous evaluation * Description
Test 20.00% 0.00% Test of organic and inorganic formulation must be passed.
Assessment of problem solving and/or case studies 20.00% 0.00% The resolution of problems by the student will be positively assessed at the proposal of the teacher.
Final test 60.00% 100.00% This test may be distributed throughout the course in partial tests, according to the schedule that will be published on "Campus virtual"
Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    The student will pass the course with a minimum grade of 5 and must pass the organic and inorganic formulation test.
    To average with the rest of the evaluation activities, a grade higher than 4 must be obtained. The student will only have to take the exam for the parts not passed.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    There will be an exam in which the theoretical and practical concepts of the subject will be fully evaluated and must pass the organic and inorganic formulation test. The final grade will correspond to the final exam grade.
    The student will pass the course with a minimum grade of 5.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
The same criteria above will be used. The student will only have to take the exam for the parts not passed.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
There will be an exam in which the theoretical and practical knowledge will be fully evaluated.and must pass the organic and inorganic formulation test. The final grade will correspond to the final exam grade.
The student will pass the course with a minimum grade of 5.
