BioGrad Examination Centre at Liverpool Science Park offers a unique set of laboratory based practical endorsement courses that support all the requirements of the Biology, Chemistry and Physics assessed practicals for OCR, AQA and Pearson Edexcel.
The programmes have been developed by real research scientists and qualified assessors with input from exam officers to fulfil all criteria of the A-level practical endorsements.
All sessions are taught in very small group sizes so that students have the opportunity to spend quality time with the scientists and have time to make (safe) mistakes, learn and try again until they are confident in their work.
Courses are available for the below subjects:
BioGrad laboratories are world-class research facilities and our courses are held with real scientists. The BioGrad programme is designed for students who wish to invest their time and energy into developing real laboratory skills that will ultimately get them into work/university whilst also developing their theoretical knowledge to support their A-level studies. These courses are more than just obtaining the minimum requirement to pass.
Our staff spend a great deal of time and effort adding ‘extra value’ evening activities, showing students the real experiments that they use in their own work and writing references after the courses.
BioGrad are working with education psychologists to track the progression of our students after they have competed their practical endorsements with BioGrad. We are establishing best practices for teaching laboratory skills and will be inviting all students who attended these courses to help us in this research by allowing us to follow up with them occasional after they have completed their training.
