Practical Assessment
Please note that any examination centre accepting private candidates has to give them an opportunity to complete the fieldwork with them if they so wish. This means that the school will have to organise the fieldwork. However the student can choose not to complete the practicals but should be aware that by choosing not to do them they may be unable to access certain marks if they do not have the necessary knowledge available.

Please note 10% of the overall assessment of A-level Environmental Science will contain mathematical skills equivalent to Level 2 or above. At least 15% of the overall assessment will assess knowledge, skills and understanding in relation to practical work.
