This year for A2 I have 2 prac exams, and I started one of them today. At the END of the 2 hours I realised that I measured one of the solids wrong right from the beginning which will ultimately affect all of my results.
I spoke to my teacher who said we don't have time to redo it and he said I'll probably lose 1-2 marks as my yield will be off, but am I not going to lose marks for my titration and ratio in my calculations being wrong ? confused.
I feel miserable as I need an A this year and I can't believe I've messed up on something so little
I still have my other Chemistry prac to do which I can hopefully not mess up, and the titration to do and the booklet to fill in for the one I did mess up - I just hope that this doesn't lower my grade in my practical too much.

Can anyone tell me anything to make me feel better? lol

Don't worry, as you have another one left try your hardest in that one.
I am kind of in the same situation.
