    YES!! 100% Agree- I think and hope Physics will be easy too!
    Physics will most likely be a 6 marker on the National Grid and how it creates electricity (or alternative ways)

    What marks would in each exam I need to secure an A* in each science if I were to achieve A*'s for Physics, Chem. & Bio in the controlled assessments? (triple scientist)
    Depends on the Grade boundaries but probably 54 Minimum to secure that A* because it could never be higher than 54 I doubt it

    Me too! Physics is the hardest for me. Last years paper - ugh! That shock absorbers question was awful. It was harder than usual so I hope Edexcel give us an easy one this year. That's it for me I'm only doing core this year

    My science teacher is a pain, she wont let me change it even though she still never sent it off to the exam board
    That's quite annoying and I feel sorry for you, because my teacher allowed me to go from an A to an A*.

    I really feel for everyone who didn't do so well on the ca Feel like teachers always discredit controlled asessments and then when they tell you the result its always too late!? It should be an easy way to get an a* but never turns out that way. In fact our school couldn't even be bothered to tell us the result, I only found mine out because it was part of the sample.

    Good luck to everyone sitting the exams though There's still time to get an a* if you believe in yourself.

    Some teachers are just bad markers, one class in my school with the same ability as mine got an average mark of about 42 in the CA's whilst mine got an average of about 36 and I suspect its due to the difference in the teachers marking as there cannot be that much difference in a mixed triple science set.

    That's so unfair! I hope your work gets moderated and remarked I don't think that's fair at all I somehow managed to get 48, I don't know who marked mine or how but I swear I had no idea what I was doing and my teachers must be super generous. So I can agree with what you're saying some teachers are generous, others not so much and you think they would be considering it reflects the quality of their teaching.
