    In my A2 Chemistry ISA, I actually cried. It was a titration-related one and I didn't get a single colour change after titrating a stupid amount, so I did it horribly wrong and got no results, and had to make some up. In the written exams I still got some marks so I just focused on the exams to make the best out of that situation, and that is what you should do.

    thanks for the reply isas are the worst had a similar experience last year decided to the empa which i did to better in but i was doing that in the middle of actual exams. Yeah i think i am probably better of just concentrating on my exams (doing all 4 units).

    Ah, I see. If you have the choice of doing the EMPA in the middle of your exams, then have a think back to last year (you said that you did better in) and then remember that you're doing all 4 units this year. If you've worked enough for the exams then the EMPA related stuff won't be completely unfamiliar but it would be a bit of stress.
