Nuffield Foundation calls for Ofqual to reconsider proposal to remove the assessment of practical work from science A levels

The Nuffield Foundation has called for Ofqual to reconsider its proposal to remove the assessment of practical work from the final grade awarded in physics, chemistry and biology A levels.

We believe that hands-on practical work is an integral part of school science which enhances the learning of scientific knowledge. The technical and investigative aspects of scientific inquiry complement students’ theoretical understanding, enabling them to make links between what they observe and scientific ideas.
