    Which exam board is this?
    I can try and find some past papers for you to give you a rough idea, but it's against the rules to share information about what is on the current ISA.

    You should be prepped for most of the questions anyway for paper one as most are usually the same except for question 4. Be ready to talk about your sources, a control variable, your equipment and method including safety tips - for this you need a , have a results table ready to draw out - you can pretty much put most of your answers for this on the sheet to take in with you as long as you don't actually draw the table. I'm trying to remember other possible questions you could get for question 4 but it's been a while haha!

    I think some other ones could be a preliminary method, advantages of comparing results the answer to this would be reduce the effect of anomalous results, calculate a more accurate mean - explain how to calculate mean - and confirm reproducibility), what is the range of a variable in your experiment and do you think this range is good enough, outline another method and say why you chose yours - thats all I can remember

    Oh and aren't the specimen papers on the AQA website? Anyway you don't need them - just plan an answer to each one of the questions I've written above - most of them are pretty easy - and you'll be sound

    Hope this helps - good luck!
