A Level Science Practical Endorsement
The number one Private Exam Centre for A Level Biology, Chemistry & Physics Science Practical Endorsement
A Level Biology, Chemistry & Physics Science Practical Endorsement
We have listed below our Spring 2021 dates for the A level Common Practical Assessment Criteria (CPAC’s), commonly referred to as the Science practical’s endorsement.
We have been approved by the JCQ to carry out the 12 Science Practical’s for the A Level CPAC’s (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) for the following Awarding Bodies – Pearson, OCR, Eduqas and AQA.
We know it works, the lead monitor for the JCQ’s A Level Science practical’s commented:
“Thank you very much for letting me visit the centre and observe a practical activity. I was very impressed with your understanding and implementation of the practical endorsement.”
The Exam Boards state that candidates are expected to have completed 12 practicals for the practical endorsement in addition to the three written examination papers. The practical’s do not count towards the final grade but the content of paper 3 is based on them. We are offering three full practical days, preceded by a compulsory lab experience day.
The maximum number of candidates per session is 15.
The cost of each science practical is £925 per subject.
