    Help me
    So we have completed our titration practical in class and we even carried it out twice just to make sure we all got it accurate and knew what we were doing.
    Well, the practical side of it went well and I understood what I was doing,
    but now when it comes to the write-up bit, I am completely lost.
    I don't know how to start my write up or what to include in it.

    I'm already halfway through year 12 and we have only done 1 practical and my teacher is not in for most of the time...

    Title, equipment, method, diagram, risk assessment, results, calculations, conclusion. Write down all of your sub headings and underline them if you feel like it.
    You should have your practical booklet or sheet from the spec or whatever with you right? Use that as a guide, you could probably copy it word for word if it's exactly what you did.
    Title -is baso 'required practical blah blah blah'
    Equipment -with all the measurements of stuff you used (conc of your solutions etc)
    Method -should be in your practical booklet from spec, just copy that, or whatever method you were given.
    Diagram- draw it properly, decently sized and with a ruler and everything, saves you from having to redo it. Label it.
    Risk assessment- 'wore goggles to prevent blinding myself' that kind of thing, don't need to write too much on that, just afew sentences
    Results - put it in a table if you've got plenty, if not then just mix it in with your calculations
    Calculations - make it clear what you're doing step by step
    Conclusion- talk about your result, talk about something if t went wrong and what you did to fix it, what you'd do differently next time etc...
    Hope this helped )

    It depends on the teacher. My teacher asks us to write the title, aims and skills, risk assessment( if not given in practical book), analysis and extension. So depends on how your teacher wants you to do it.

    Doesn't really depend on your teacher since they're not the people assessing your practical books, it depends on your spec. When I did mine it was AQA, what I listed is what it asked for. As it's a required practical, there will be a spec booklet that has all of the practicals written up, have a look at that and write yours up using that as a guide

    I do OCR. so LilN has a better suggestion for AQA. I don't wanna confuse you cuz maybe i do it differently to how your spec wants you to do it.Its better you take LilN's advice as he has done AQA.
    Btw m sorry i am unable to help you.
