GCSE SCIENCE REQUIRED PRACTICALS

Students studying COMBINED SCIENCE have 21 practicals that should be covered and experienced within year 10 and year 11. TRIPLE SCIENCE students have 28.

Many of them will feature in your final exams, so it is important that you remember how to carry them out and how to explain their purpose.

‘6 mark questions’ will be asked that expect you to be able to describe how to carry out these practicals.

Below is a complete list of them all with and online ‘simulation‘ and a ‘video‘ for each.
