I did my biology practical a few days ago.I followed all the steps correctly in the first half.However I think I didn't use a colorimeter properly in the second half of the practical for which I got wrong results and wrong graph.My teacher told me to don't mind about it when I showed her my graph.

idk,I am still minding...is it enough to fail the overall practical endorsement?

Each of the practicals covers a set of skills.
Once you complete a skill it is ticked off.
You pass the practice endorsement if you get all of the ticks.
Most are easy like can you draw a table/ follow instructions
Multiple practicals cover each spec point.
So if you miss out on one tick you will be able to make it up in another practical.

Hey AW AFR!

As emma963 says the task will cover skills that can be assessed in another practical
Also just because your results were wrong it doesn't really matter because if you drew a graph with those results you still technically drew the graph correctly
But honestly don't stress over the practical endorsement - your teachers will ensure you pass it - and you have two years to get everything ticked off!

I hope this helps,

For now I did 3 practicals for Biology.In the second one I didn't to finish the whole practical because I run out of time,the first one went pretty well and in the last one wrong results.

Which and how many are the skills that teachers are going to tick?

If your teacher hasn’t said anything then I’m sure you’re fine :yes:
