    Empa is 20% so no. 2 Cs would not suffice unless they were both 1 mark of a B.

    I reckon about 80% for an A, given that it was fairly straight forward! Way better than the chemistry one haha

    I got a D in unit 2 mock exam 2014 paper.. 44 marks out of 100.. I've done lots of past papers and the problem with me is that I don't read the full questions and I just jot down what comes up from my mind... I just realised that the answers are over and over again however just need to be specific... Also I haven't been reading the textbook for ages I just do past papers is this alright???

    I think it will be about 35/ 36 this year. And the reason why that is I know loads of people saying they ****ed up task 1 entirely. The only time is was 40 out of 50 was when it was an incredibly easy exam.
    I also think us sayin "Oh you need 40 for an A" is us just being extremely paranoid and pessimistic at this stage.

    Can I just remind everyone that discussing specifics about the EMPA and trading information about the EMPA is not allowed on TSR. AQA are actively looking for people cheating and there have been a couple candidates disqualified already! Do not be one of them and get 2 years of hardwork thrown down the drain!

    There are still schools doing EMPAs due to extensions.

    I think its a bit pointless to talk about it now. It's in the past. No need to dwell on it.

    Hey I know this exam was ages ago but I just need help on something. I think I got an A on unit 1 a high B on unit 2 (maybe an A but I don't want to get my hopes up) though I think I screwed up on the Empa and either got a low C or a high D (which also depends because I think the last part, thr exam, went better than I'd hoped but once again I don't want to get my hopes up.) Do think that can get me a B overall?
