    My teacher told me that last year a boy who took foundation papers for his additional science GCSE received a B overall .. is that even plausible?!

    Is it true if you get VERY high scores in your papers and a high score in the c/w (ISA) you can get a B over all? If so how high do these scores need to be?

    Thank you

    Yep that is doable if you get high grades in the ISA and then a high C in the paper.

    I don't know what the exact marks you would need are, however you could work it out if you knew the grade boundaries and what percentage each part was worth.
