1. Please Help: What do I need to get a B in AQA Biology?
Hiya everyone, new here and was just seeking some advice.
I got a real bad exam timetable and have been working flat out for bloody ages now and I'm tired
Basically think I should have 2 as or 1 a and 1 a* right now and I'm just wondering what I need to get a B in biology over all because I don't think I can get an A and I don't want to work real hard for just a B.

Sooo...
Unit 1:82a
Unit 2:121a
AS ISA:40c

Unit 4:72b
Unit 5:???? LOL
A2 ISA: can't remember teacher said it will probably go to full marks in scaling process.

So what do i need in Unit 5 to get a B ?

Up to unit 4, you got 315 ums. You need 420 for a B.

So if you get 60 in the ISA then you need 45 in unit 5.
If you get less than 60 in the ISA then you need more than 45 in unit 5.

And for an A, if you get full marks in the ISA, you need 105 in unit 5

Means you need 45 Ums to get a b overall, which means you have to get a U in unit 5, that's if you have full marks in your isa, if not then probably a e/d in unit five and you will still get a B overall. If you get 105 Ums in unit 5, a high B, then you get an A overall, thats if your isa is full marks.

Sorry, I meant 45 UMS. That's definitely achievable if you work hard
