EMPA exams are going to screw up my grades

    • Thread Starter

    I've already done my biology EMPA which I don't think I did well in but hopefully I got at least a D. Chemistry is even worse though. I just did a past paper and I got 12 marks out of like 34! Admittedly, I was stressed and my head was all over the place so I probably could have done a bit better but 12!? I do relatively well in the normal exams.
    In my unit 1 for Chemistry I got three marks off an A, which is good considering nearly half of my class got U grades.
    I'm so stressed about this EMPA though. I've been out of action for a few weeks due to having glandular fever which meant I couldn't even get out of bed, let alone revise. Just to add insult to injury, it's left me with chronic fatigue syndrome so I can't revise much at the moment without getting tired. So basically I have a mountain of revision to get through, plus the pressure of this EMPA to do when I get back and I have no idea how to improve my grade. Any pointers to at least PASS?

    Did you do the AS or the A2 EMPA?
    I have mine next week and im really confused on what to revise, could you give me some pointers, or let me know if you remember any questions

    If your good with chemistry maths you should be fine as majority of marks are for that (AS EMPA)
