    I don't know what to do to prepare for it. I am resitting it as a private candidate in an exam centre I have never been to, and they have not offered any tutoring. I just completely suck at EMPAs and I just want to get at least a C on this one. I just want some tips and rules that can help. Thanks in advance.

    Also doing this.

    Would it be worth creating some sort of group on fb or whatsapp to share resources?

    I've got my EMPA resit tomorrow and I'm so stressed because I'm the only one resitting so school couldn't do a mock EMPA for me so I've had no prep for it

    What are you worrying about? Maybe we can give advice? Just look over past papers and understand a lot of how to calculate uncertainties and you're sorted!

    Thank you, I've done that and I'm going to have a look at some youtube videos, I just want to get an A to take the pressure off the exams so I wish I'd had a mock empa to just remind me of how it all goes kinda thing. I'm guessing it'll just be a capacitor and then a pendulum/spring mass system but I'm just thinking they might mix it up because we're the last people who can sit it!!

    I've got the Empa a week monday. I've been going over SHM and capacitors for ages hoping the questions will be easier then last year. Really need a good grade for this and running out of ways to revise it
