Do you supply chemicals and materials for practical exams?

For some syllabuses, the confidential instructions list any chemicals and materials that we supply. You must check the despatch list against the list in the confidential instructions as soon as they arrive and let us know about any discrepancies immediately. Open the packets containing perishable materials as soon as they arrive and keep them in a refrigerator that is not accessible to unauthorised people.

The Head of Centre, along with the supervisor, is responsible for the safe and confidential handling of all materials until they are used in the exam. No information about these materials must reach candidates see ‘Special instructions for science practical exams’ 5.7.1 in our Cambridge Handbook 2024 .
