    I thought the June 2014 paper (well, the mark scheme anyway) was awful. Haven't really started revision yet. Probably should.

    We haven't even got our mock results back yet!

    But otherwise everything is going well. Slightly worried about the EMPA though.

    I'm looking at past papers etc and it seems like the answers are really obvious, but I always over think it and get it wrong

    I did unit 1 last year the exam was awful which if you've seen it you'll understand, I don't think it'll be that hard again this year, so you should all be fine. Also a lot of my class were worried about the EMPA but not one of us got lower than a B, just make sure you read everything a couple of times and you'll be fine!

    I got a C in the June 14 paper, only because of the poor mark scheme.
    i am worried about the practical exam, but mine is an ISA not an EMPA.
    does anyone have any idea on what its going to be???

    I thought it was pretty awful! Even though some of the questions seemed kind of straight forward now I've got the mark scheme the answers almost don't match up! I actually got a D in it which I wasn't happy with so I'm actually resetting it this year in hopes of getting a much higher grade!
