    You do realise you shouldn't post things like this because it will only attract the attention of people who are wanting answers and that can get you and the other person into a lot of trouble?

    The AS and A2 chem EMPA was fairly straight forward so don't worry too much about that, hopefully, the physics and bio are also easy. Overall, the as ones are easier than the A2 in terms of what to do.

    The ISA is internally marked -So by your teachers, and submitted to the exam board,

    whereas the EMPA is marked externally by the examiners.

    I personally feel like ISA's are easier, but I only do EMPAs so its biased (6EMPAs to be exact -including last year resits because i failed most of it) tbf I did do ISA's in GCSE where I got As and A*s on it, and found that so much easier.

    But my teachers also said that EMPA's are easy to get a good grade.

    I've done my AS and A2 Chemistry and Bio, still got AS and A2 physics next week!

    Good luck to everyone who is doing it
