Your A Level practical work supports the topics that you learn in the classroom. If you are planning on studying science after A Level, then universities also value students that have the practical skills to succeed in higher education. We have brought the laboratory expertise of Birmingham researchers to some of the most common A Level Science experiments to help you understand why practical skills are important, as well as how to do well in the lab.
