Hi there,

I just wanted to know if any of you guys knew any exam boards that will allow me to do ONLY written papers for AS Biology and NO practical side of it. This is because my Private tuition does not do any practical side of the AS Biology so he had advised me to find an exam board that will allow me to do just the written exam paper....And also is AS Biology hard I mean it does look hard and on top of that my college will not allow me to AS Biology as I don't have an B in my additional science but I do have a B in core...and so I am willing to pay to do AS Biology as I really would like to do it, however I am just scared of failing it.

I believe you are unable to do an exam-only version of sciences, as for the AS to get accredicted there must be 20% practical element.

If you go to a college, why don't you ask them if you can do the practicals with them? They may not allow you to study Biology with them, but if you're a private candidate for the subject they might say yes.

You can do the practicals at private exam centres. Just google A Level exam centers. Not all do the science practicals but a few do.
I'm a private candidate doing biology and chemistry I need to do practicals in both AS and A2.
The difficult part concerning the practicals will be getting enough practice time not just doing the actual practical assessment.
