    It was pretty easy for me...I got 38 out of 40. Just learn what calibrating means and make sure you know how to calibrate something. Also make sure your science vocab definitions are up to date i.e. independent variables etc. The rest is all applied knowledge. Oh and make sure you know everything about your experiment like the variables. Also learn what tolerance is and validity plus reliability. I've helped you quite a bit there so just do the past papers on the AQA website now and you should be fine . Hope you get what you want.

    I think you had to calibrate a thermometer or something similar. I really can't remember. Try telling me about the experiment again?
