    I've been looking over the specification and it is far less detailed than my notes. Can they ask questions based on information that isn't on the specification?
    Should I just condense my notes so that they match the specification exactly?

    I'm studying from home so I can't really check with a teacher.

    What will help you with this, is going through a lot of past papers, like even from specifications that arent ours, as they tend to maintain the same questions, as there is only so much application and so many questions they could ask.
    I remember for last years paper, i went through loads of past how science works questions and one question was basically the same! e.g
    some really common applciation questions are;
    1. factors to consider when deciding sample size: enough for representative, and statistical test, but not too time consuming
    2. Why use units per gram or per area: because it allows comparison and there are large variations in overall masses or area size

    But yeahh that sort of thing

    Oh. Yeah I know.

    I got a C grade last time in unit 4 (I kept nodding off in the exam, I couldn't afford caffeine for the last exam) and never finished. I'm still on an A grade overall though somehow.
