Is it possible to sit a level science exams without the practicals, then sit the practicals during a gap year?

I haven’t heard of anyone who’s ever done that, especially because questions about the practicals will be included in the exam papers anyway. But just to be sure, maybe you should ask your teacher or head of year.

No. If you have taken the exams and the practicals you can carry forward the pass in the practicals when you re-sit the exams the following year, but you can't carry forward the exam results and then take the practicals.

Edit: I can't find the regulation for this, but the software just doesn't let you make this as an entry, whereas it's easy to specify that you're carrying forward the practical grade.

I'm an exams officer.

Annex 1 of https://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/...ents-2019-2020 talks about the practicals and how you can carry forward the mark if you re-sit the exams but it doesn't mention specifically that you can't do the opposite - but doing so would run contrary to all the general exam practice.
