Basically im an A2 biology student, and I wanted to ask a question.
So as you know there are practicals which are supposed to be done for te coursework, however I was unabke to do these practicals
So i wanted to know whether my grades would be valid if i sit the exams without the practicals because as you know teachers are supposed to assess you when you do practicals.
Can I stil do my final 2 exams in june, (I got a B as AS LEVEL) so I dont want to give up now

I assume you're referring to the controlled assessment courseworks - did you do the papers but not the practicals, ie. get given some model results?
As I recall from teaching A-level (this was on OCR spec), there were two marks available for the actual practical procedure - one for not being a drip (ie. safe working), and one for something specific to that practical method.
The best thing to do would be to ask your teacher specifically, as they will be up to date on your exam board's rules. Personally I would be inclined to award the one mark for safe working if I had seen regular evidence of this in other practicals, but might be disinclined to award the other.
