    Practical skills are pretty self explanatory- and in reality, not entirely essential.

    You see, even in the ISA, your practical will only carry a small amount of marks. Knowing about how science works and the topic at hand will usually carry far more marks.

    Plus, examined practicals have near fool proof instructions with step by step guides. And don't be afraid to ask your teacher if you think you're going wrong- they may not be allowed to help with questions, but they can help you with a failing practical!

    I use youtube a lot to watch the experiments over and over again so I feel confident about what I am doing.

    Are you going to do a science degree? because you do realise that you will me assessed on you practical skills a lot on a science course dont you?
