A-Level Science Practicals Endorsement

Tutors & Exams has been approved by the JCQ to carry out Science Practicals (Biology, Chemistry & Physics) for the following Awarding Bodies:

Edexcel, OCR, Eduqas and AQA.

The lead monitor for the JCQ:  “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.”

What’s Required?

The Exam Boards state that candidates are expected to have completed 12 practicals for the science practical endorsement in addition to the three examination papers. The science practicals do not count towards the final grade but the content of paper 3 is based on them. We are offering three science practical days (four practicals per day) over the academic year. Day one will be in late Winter and will be in line with the learning you have already undertaken. Days 2 & 3 will be in late spring and an ideal time to put the theory into practice.

Costs

The cost of the whole qualification including the science practicals is £925 per subject. However, if you are studying with one of our partners (CloudLearn, UK Open Study College, Wolsey Hall, Oxford Open Learning), or booking all three Sciences, the fee is £825 per subject. If your learning centre is not listed, contact us and we will try to include them. Alternatively, let your learning centre know that you could be receiving a discount!

We are also holding lab experience days at a cost of £250 (£200 for our partnership learners) per day so candidates gain confidence, become familiar with, handle equipment safely and experience what is expected from them in preparation for the assessments.
