For your International A level (in a science-based subject), Edexcel assesses practical knowledge through written papers, whilst CAIE include a practical assessment of unseen material under examination conditions; both require working knowledge of multiple science practicals.

At Greene’s, you will  have the opportunity to gain a solid foundation in practical work for your International A level examinations, acquiring transferable skills useful in your further study and beyond. Success on these intensive courses requires pre-course preparation.

Our courses are suitable for anyone studying an International A level science subject, in particular:

  • External candidates studying at home through distance learning organisations;
  • Retake candidates looking to improve their grades and understanding of science in practice;

Science practical case study

Dr. Saif Bham, Tutor of Sciences at Greene’s

The International A level science practical assessment is more than just an exam… practical sessions enable students to develop their ideas into workable investigations and to think critically about evidence. This is the essence of the scientific process.

Oya, Science Practical Course

I should have come to Greene’s last year, but I didn’t know about the college back then – I wasted time by not studying effectively for my A levels in Biology and Chemistry.

Fees & Registration Deadlines

The year 1 and year 2 courses can be taken consecutively for those wishing to complete their practicals in one year.

The IGCSE examination boards describe “required practicals” in their course structure. Students are expected to have performed these experiments or watched them demonstrated and be familiar with one of a few possible versions of the experiments. However, there is no check in place to ensure the students have done any experiments except for paper-based examination assessment.

This bespoke, hands-on course, which caters for different learning styles and is taught by experienced Greene’s tutors, enables students to understand the science practicals that they will be examined on, preparing them for International A levels or further study.
