    Hi.

    I am currently self-stuyding A-level Biology on the Edexcel syllabus. I didn't want to go through one of those distance learning colleges and opted for the much cheaper option of studying it myself so I have no external support.

    Units 3 and 6 involve practical work. I'm currently struggling to find the specifications for undertaking the practical elements, what's required of me and what I need to do. I know such guidance exists somewhere on the internet though.

    I'd be greatly appreciated if anyone who has studied A-level Biology via Edexcel can point me in the right direction.

    I did A-level Biology by self study last year although it was AQA. I did look at Edexcel though before I found out what exam board the exam centre in which I sat the exams used.

    Here's the link to the Edexcel Biology specification including various other materials such as previous exam papers (you have to scroll down a bit).

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks for your help

    I have managed to find a few centres willing to 'authenticate' my coursework before submitting it off to Edexcel for marking, but I'm confused as to how they could reasonably be expected to know it's my own work when I've done it myself?

    You're welcome!

    Hmm, I don't know, but I imagine they'll know how to deal with it. Maybe they'll just check it for plagiarism to make sure you haven't copied from a website or something.

    I am thinking of hiring a private tutor and asking them to authenticate my coursework, as I haven't found a single exam centre willing to do it!

    Do you know if Edexcel would accept coursework that had been authenticated by a private tutor?

    I'm not sure, worth asking though.
