    does anyone know where we can find last years paper for more practice material?
    Usually, exam papers aren't made available to students until after a year post-sitting because schools and colleges use them as mocks. This is probably the case for EMPA papers too I would imagine. Your teacher will probably have access to them however, so you could ask them and they might let you have it.

    Hello,
    I was wondering, when you give an answer to a calculation, the mark scheme has a range, yet if someone gives an answer to 2 decimal places instead of 1... Will someone loose a mark?
    Oh and for an answer how much does a range vary for the answer??

    I’m not sure if you would know these answers, but I would highly appreciate it
