    Nope! It's common sense, although last year for core it was on biofuels (no specific knowledge needed)

    I haven't been taught anything
    My teacher is useless so I'm relying on CGP for my grade.

    I thought Physics was my strongest but obviously not. Got 20/48, 27/48, and 38/48 in Bio, Chem and Physics coursework. Did Bio and Chem again, got 37 in Bio hope to get around 41 in Chem. I hate coursework for all subjects, I'm an exam person.

    Same with chem! :lol:

    Yikes! That's a big difference!

    I have 48/48 in chemistry... Physics I've finished but not marked. And we haven't done biology!

    Those are the official boundaries (42/48=A*) from the core science GCSE last year

    There haven't been any submissions for separate science
