    If you're doing AQA then go through the markscheme for the table/graph to see where you can get maximum marks then go through past papers.

    - 6 marks - you can get these from the teacher's -observation
    - 3 marks - table of results
    - 7 marks - graph work

    The rest is dependent on your mark in the exam paper. My advice is to go through the specimen papers provided by the AQA website and look through it thoroughly. You should be able to pick up atleast 16/50 marks without effort. (referring to the above points)

    Best of luck! Let me know how it goes

    For AS, which I presume this ISA is, you'll get 6 marks for Practical Skills Assessment, which your teacher will allocate.
    You'll get 6 marks for your graph and table.
    And you'll get another 38 marks from your paper.

    This can't be AQA board because I am doing A2 Biology AQA, with AQA, you have an Externally Marked Practical Assesment(EMPA) which is at the end of february/end of march. Make sure you do well in it, it cost me my A grade and if you do badly in it you have to re-take it next year(only comes once a year from what im told). You should be given the specimen which is something to do with lactase and measuring the time taken for somthing to go down a syringe. Thats what i remember from AS, Im worried about Unit 4 which people made a facebook group about because it was mainly logic :/
