Science Practical Examinations for Private Candidates

It is advised that you undertake the practical examination component for each of the science subjects studied.  Practicals are offered in Chemistry, Biology and Physics for all Examination Boards. Whilst the Boards claim that practicals are not compulsory, they do carry 15% of the final mark. Also if there is no practical component, the final examination certificate will be endorsed “No Practical”.

Cost of Practical Tuition

Practical tuition costs £350 per day and a day’s tuition will cover 4 practical sessions.  Since each subject entails 12 practical sessions, 3 day’s practical per subject will be required to complete its practical component to obtain the practical endorsement for that subject.

Extra practice sessions can be arranged at the same rate.
