    Have people been doing last years maggot maze as a mock?
    We just went through the questions in class - i.e. like a normal lesson, rather than a mock.

    I think we're having something else as a mock after half term

    60/60 UMS because I prepared for it

    Which is what this thread is trying to achieve aha.

    It doesn't count towards the A* though, right?

    I'm tempted to buy that little purple book thing that's for the EMPA, you know the one I am on about? I have the unit 4 and 5 ones
    hi. 60/60 is AMAZING!! i was wondering how did you prepare? if you used a book which one? thanks

    ISA is internally marked, EMPA is externally marked.

    We were told EMPA is easier to score marks in

    The advantage of ISA is that the teachers know roughly how well you've done before results day.

    I'll probably go into Task 1 without much prep

    Task 1 is fairly straight forward, and you can spend time for 2 and 3 after 1 has given you a decent idea of what to expect

    The a-level biology EMPAs are pretty soon so I was wondering if anyone had any resources to share, such as a guide to standard deviation.
    If anyone has any biology EMPA/ISA resources, could they please share, thanks!
