    I got told from my school that an A* in the ISA will not be any higher than 42/50... don't know if I really trust their judgement though! In the ISAs I got 44-physics , 45-bio and 48-chem so im hoping for 93UMS , 95UMS, 100UMS but I really don't know

    Because in my school everyone seems to have done really poorly. For example I got 93 in unit 1, 90 in unit 2 and then 39 in the ISA. could that be changed in moderation?

    We're you the top or were those sorts of marks normal in your school?

    Well my school is predicting 40 as the grade boundary and that seems about right considering who got what

    ISAs
    Physics: 41
    Chemistry: 40
    Biology: 41

    sounds crap compared to everyone else's Hopefully I can make it up in core sciences because the grade boundaries are generally low.

    They're good grades. We're most people in your school getting that?

    Wow! Is that a private or grammar school? Because our school is state but it still pretty good and top set were on average around 37.

    I am quite afraid that the UMS score of my ISA will determine my grade more than my exams will. What I mean is that I've never gone below 94 UMS in either Unit 1 or Unit 2 of the sciences, and yet 43/50 might be 86 UMS. Combined with poor performance in Unit 3, I might end up with 359 UMS or something and miss out on the A* that I really want.

    Yeah. But I reckon some schools are more generous than others so they will probs be changed by moderators. Hopefully!
