    I'm really worried for my best friend, like she needs a C in maths to get to the college she really wants to go to but she's borderline D/C. I don't know what to say to her if she fails because there is nothing i can do. Any suggestions?

    Oh Dear. I know exactly how you are feeling.
    However most of my friends either didn't have enough gcses or failed a core subject so the college let them re-sit their gcses whilst learning an a-level too.
    Tell her try not to worry though because it isn't the end of the world if you don't get the grades.

    :goodluck: Hope this helps

    Tell her it'll be okay, tell her they don't define her as a person and that you'll be there for the next step she takes

    I have a last-minute question for those of you who did AQA Core Science. Does your ISA get added to your overall Core Science grade, or no?

    There's Two things i can think off, firstly she could try and get a remark if she is really close to a grade C, amd hopefully she can get a couple of marks. Or secondly, she can retake the exam in November. I don't know if i got a C or not either, so im pretty nervous myself. I wish her the best for passing! Sorry if my suggestions are not thet good either

    Yes ofc it does! Well the marks from ur ISA are counted just like the exams and then they make a total and then give a grade. I think.

    Well I'm hoping for at least 1 A but a couple of Cs and Bs would be fine since I missed a lot of time off school

    The exam wasn't that bad. People made a huge deal out of it for no reason, a teacher and a level students went through it and said it was easier than theirs. Hope you do well though. I'm sure you'll do okay.
