For paper 3 of Edexcel Chem A/s level you have to do a few experiemnts aswell as the paper at the end of the year.

One of the experiments on finding out what 3 salts were- i messed up - i didnt get the salts and most of the 'inferences i wrote' for the 15 marks were totally wrong.
Am i legally allowed to repeat it? I.e can i force my school to let me do it again.

Also roughly what percentage of the paper would it be worth?

thanks!!

I am sure your school does more experiments than needed, so you will have a chance to make up for it. I am guessing you did a 'C/D' type practical (where you do different tests and observe[C] what you see and draw inferences[D]) IIRC you need 1xC and 1xD marks in your final assesment but you WILL have more opportunities to make up for the makrs you drop now.
