A level Science practical requirements for 2023

As mentioned in a previous update practical requirements return to normal in 2023 for GCSE and A level Science. This means that students sitting A level Sciences in Summer 2023 are required to meet all the CPAC conditions stated in the A level Science specifications.

To support centres with practical work we provide A level Core Practical Guides and practical playlists for each A level Science qualification. These are located on the 'Teaching and Learning Materials' pages.
