AS AQA ISA - How bad will this affect my result watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I have this problem with ISA's as I get terrible nerves and I don't think straight (just last week I forgot to put on my goggles in my chemistry resit till half way through then in my biology ISA before I knocked the actual experiment over) yet in just normal exams I'm able to get A's and B's so I wouldn't think its becuase I'm bad at my subjects

    So today after doing part one of the ISA I walk out and realise that in my column in my table for my independant variable....I've written the damn wrong values...as well as this I'm worried the range these values cover isn't actually big enough. So how much of an effect do you think this would have on the overall marks for the exam? Would it be possible to redeem myself on the other parts of the ISA? I did want to get an A/B at AS though I'm begining to wonder if I'm punching above my weight here though now...I genuinely can't believe how stupid I can be sometimes. :s

    As far as I'm aware you only get a smallish proportion of the marks from your practical, so don't worry too much. Its the paper you need to focus on, and from what you've said I'm sure you'll do brilliantly I was like this all the way through AS, and I thought I was being stupid thinking I could get an A, but its the raw UMS that counts, and I managed to get an A overall.
