The Classroom Environment

Our online/in-person classes are small making learning more accessible for learners and gives the classroom environment a calm atmosphere to learn. Having a limited number of students in the classroom gives the students more one-on-one time with their teacher, for teachers to review students’ work, to provide feedback on what went well, and how to improve students’ work for the future.

Register Science Practical endorsements 

A level: 3 written exams and *optional practical endorsement

*Optional practical endorsement. It is possible for students to receive an A Level Biology qualification without completing the practical endorsement, although your certificate will state you have not completed this and can harm your chances of gaining a place at university or getting a job.

*Is it Optional for Me? Whilst being optional, 15% of your written grade will come from your knowledge of practical elements, so if you are looking to optimise your grade, you would be recommended to consider taking the practical lab assessment. If you plan to study a Science related degree at university it is likely you will require the practical endorsement.

You will be awarded up to 56 UCAS points per A Level
