    Slightly, I suppose. For me the practicals were the most interesting bits! I was always more of an Arts person, I suppose, though I did like biology.

    It's not that weird. I enjoy science, particularly physics, but I'm not a massive fan of practicals to be totally honest.

    I *hate* science but loved the practicals. I was extremely good at dissecting things. Give me a scalpel, pair of scissors and some hooks and I was off. Kidneys, those were fun... I really enjoyed kidneys.

    Wow, I really *do* sound weird. Anyway... I reckon some people are just good at understanding things when doing them, and confident with it, and some people aren't. Happens in most subjects.

    I really enjoyed science, but I equally enjoyed practicals. Having a practical bascially mixed up the lessons a bit. Because in my chemistry classes, if we were not doing practicals, we were making notes for most of the time.

    Although some practicals are boring! Titrations I can safetly say I am allergic to!

    I thought most of the practicals we did in A level chemistry were pretty boring. Biology was marginally better.

    This is definately not weird. I do all three sciences and the only thing i enjoyed about practical work is making up results lol.
    Well i heard that a lot of great scientist in their early days actually make up results. I guess practical is boring because some time it don't get the right results and we need to twist the numbers to make it fit.

    i'm the same, i'm not a huge fan of practicals.

    In a-level physics being asked to done some practicals just felt such a drag. Because you had toooo... get out your seat. Go al the way to the other side of the lab (a whole 5m), get the stuff. Go all the way back again, set it all up, do loads of repetitive results, draw a graph, draw a line of best fit and they take all the stuff back again.

    Yawn!

    I much prefer demonstations, whereby the teacher sets something up and you just have to watch. This is usually much more interesting and less tedious.

    I only did science up to GCSE level but although I didn't mind the theory, I hated the practicals, probably because I was so crap at them!

    my freinds allways sabotaged my chemistry experiments by promising to look after them and them just leaving them to burn away on the highest flame :rolleyes:

    Also in one of the biology practicals (an assessed one at gcse) by freind picked up about 8 test tubes in his hands all in a mess and just thrust them towards me. Not surprisingly half of them fell on the floor and smashed and we both got marked down for being not having good lab technigue or something. Which i thought was rather harsh.

    I am absolute garbage at practicals! For chemistry Implementing I has the third worst in the year (Did well on written aspects though ) And I really think I bodged up my physics practical exam, my string broke at the wrong height, typical of me with practicals >.<

    Although they make a break from all the written work, When I was doing AS Chemistry I always seemed to screw the practicals up so in a way I guess I didn't realy like them.
