revise: water movement through plants and potometry (this one's important)

the experiments are straightforward and easy
make sure you use the correct units

yeah that's right so the things coming up on an ISA might be different from an EMPA.

i'll be doing my A2 EMPA practical on the first week back after easter holidays all i've been told is that it's about the movement of maggots in different light intensities or in light and dark...

Mines second week back after, according to our teacher they're not allowed to give us the description till a week before...... But surely i must be doing maggots aswell then.


Also when is your EMPA write-up? I know some schools are earlier than others.

yeah you'll be doing maggots too. it's about kinesis/taxes i guess

my written exam is on may 7th as well and i was given the topics to revise for it today: Nutrient Cycles, Investigating Populations and Survival and Response. all the written exams are on the same days it's just the practicals that different schools have on different days

The exams CAN be on different days! My task three A2 EMPA is not until the 12th of May!
http://themightymitochondria.tumblr.com/ - this is quite a useful revision resource for taxis/kinesis etc.

Good luck everyone!
