I need to re sit a chemistry practical for OCR A, I am just wondering I have tried researching online and its saying you need to do 12 practicals. However I studied this subject as an A Level whilst at college and we didn't to 12 practicals and still obtained a full A Level. I am also confused about when I find an exam center and book a practical, how am I supposed to know what the practical is going to be about and what to study. Whilst at college we were given an insight into what practical it would be.

I don't understand why you would need to retake one practical from the 12 required for the A level practical endorsement.
When did you take the A level that you are trying to resit? It sounds like you took the old modular specification that is no longer available for resits of exams or practical assessments.

I completed the full A Level summer 2016, it was still under F321 - F326, does the new specification require all these, think I taken about 6 in total for the full A Level and the best one was used for my final grade.

Summer 2017 was the last chance to re-sit that specification. If you want to improve your Chemistry grade the only option would be to take the whole of the new spec Chemistry, including the 12 assessed practicals.

I have just looked on a website in google it says the practical endorsement is separate to the A Level, I have looked at science degrees some say they require the practicals the others don't mention nothing about it.

The result of the practicals does not affect your grade but the (vast?) majority of related degrees would require a pass in the practical endorsement. You'd need to check this out carefully with any university course you were hoping to study before you wasted time and money taking Chemistry without it
