How to Revise the GCSE Science Required Practicals in 2024

Administration / 15 Aug, 2023

Overview of GCSE Science Required Practicals in 2024

Firstly it is important to focus during GCSE Science Required Practicals when you are carrying them out at school. Ask as many questions as you need to in order to understand the scientific reasoning and knowledge behind the practical. If you have any questions leftover, note them down for your GCSE Science tutor. The practicals are based on scientific concepts, so ensure you understand the concept behind practicals to make it easily understandable. First understand the science behind the practical before revising the process of the practical itself. Once you are ready to study the practical you can approach this in many ways. You can begin by looking at and reviewing the notes you have made during lessons but also the practical report you will have written with your hypothesis, method, conclusion, data tables and graphs etc.

Resources for the Required Practicals in 2024

On the Physics and Maths Tutor website there is a separate section for the GCSE Science Required Practicals in 2024, full of amazing resources and condensed notes. This is a great starting point. Read through these notes and try your best to understand and memorise them. There are a plethora of videos on YouTube actually carrying out the practicals that you can watch as well. Many times exam questions will ask you to draw out the apparatus for a particular practical. Therefore, I would also advise practising this during your revision and labelling all the equipment. You can also create flashcards with the labelled diagram of the apparatus on one side and the explanation of the key parts of the practical on the other to quickly review during your revision.

What’s Next?

After you feel comfortable with the GCSE Science Required Practicals, always consolidate your learning by completing practice questions. This will reaffirm your learning and highlight any areas of confusion that you can bring up with your teacher or tutor. After you have cleared up any misconceptions or filled in knowledge gaps, ensure you practise these areas again.
