    Hi, I wanted to know if anyone knows if any kind of coursework needs to be submitted if I want to self-study Chemistry and Biology?

    I think you need to pass some practicals.

    You have to complete the 12 assessed practicals. They don't affect your final grade but if you are applying to a university course that requires the subject they will almost certainly require a pass in the practicals. (THis applied to England).

    Depends on the exam board you are doing. For UK exam boards you don't have to do practicals as you will be assessed based on written paper. For CIE , you will have to do the practicals and there are no alternatives .
