Book Description

This student guide offers advice to help you develop the practical skills required as part of the AQA A-level Biology specification. It covers all the required A-level practicals. Practical skills are assessed in two ways: in the AS and A-level examination papers in the A-level practical endorsement Some of the questions in the two AS exam papers and the three A-level exam papers will assess your understanding of the practical skills and your ability to apply them to familiar and unfamiliar contexts. Some of the planning and implementation skills cannot be assessed in a written examination, so will be assessed by your teachers while you are carrying out practicals throughout your course.
