    Does anybody know the best way to revise for the A-Level practical examinations? Either ISA's or EMPA's? If there is anyone on here reading this who got B or A or even A* on the practical units can you drop me hints? It would be really appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    The biology EMPAs are common sense, if you know the biology work from the course and do a couple past papers you'll be fine. And you can't go wrong with carrying out the actual practical and writing down results unless you're stupid. Chemistry EMPA you actually need to learn and stuff. Our school gave us EMPA notes and stuff, plus there lots of stuff and resources online for that chem EMPA. Oh and the physics EMPA I was well and truly screwed😊

    Thanks I'm quite nervous for them because my GCSE practical results were always the weakest :/ Yeah, sod physics, I'm glad I'm not doing that anymore, three lines of best fit? No siree.

    Do past papers over and over again, and know the topics your practical is on well enough.

    The only hard thing about them are the how science works question, so try asking your teacher for some of these questions for a particular topic.

    How far in advance do they tell you what the topic is on?
