is there anything excluding the reference writing I need to know? like do I need to remember the volumes of liquids needed for the tests and magnification drawing and graticule usage too?
I self-tutor so im confused

I was actually going through the past papers...in the previous years, there were 2 questions per paper (Q1 about an experiment and Q2 was like an article for. Which you had to gather info). I went through the June 2019 paper for Unit 3 and they don't have the article question anymore...so the exam tomorrow is probably gonna be :

3-4 questions long. It's gonna ask about variables, controls, uncertainties, at least 1 food test (probably won't be for reducing sugars as that was in the June 2019 paper so could be for starch or vitamin c) semi quantative methods...at least I'd say 2 graph questions are gonna come (around 5-6 markers) so practice those. We will also get about instruments that should be used.

Magnification questions will probably be max 2 marks...better to work on questions that will give you more marks. Graphs are the easiest to obtain them. Also go through food tests at least one and some precautions that can be taken. They will also give at least 1 experiment planning question worth 4-5 marks

Yup. It's on nhpapers...I'll attach the link to the most recent paper and Mark scheme. Just go through the June 2019 one as Jan paper is the old paper pattern. Good luck tomorrow!

Like in specific experiments they might ask what to use to let's say measure this amount of liquid and so on...so common laboratory apparatus. How would you reduce the error associated with this instrument? Oh yeah, just remembered they might ask about mineral ions and their effects on plant growth as that is a very common topic

Yup..that was easy. It's on savemyexams.co.uk

But it's according to the old paper pattern so the useful bit would only be to solve Q1 from the previous papers as that was about experiments
