    Really? I think too many people are getting 40+ in these Isas so I think 47+ will be 100 with 45 being 95/96 ums. But if schools are being generous with their marking and marks are lowered 45 will probably be 100.

    I got 39/50 ( I did it last year and they wouldn't let me retake because I was on an exchange ) how much UMS would you say that is.

    I got 97ums in B1, 81ums in B2, so how much would I need for an a* in biology or is it impossible?

    What do you think the B1 grade boundaries are? I would say 43/60 is an A*

    Wow you did very well in B1! I think 39 is around 84/85 but I'm expecting high grade boundaries for it. I hope I'm wrong though! So 97+81+85=263
    360-263=97 in B3, but if your ISA score is around 87/88 you might need around 94 instead of 97 in B3.
    its definitely not impossible!

    What?! Oh that's the highest possible grade boundaries...I think. So 40 for an A 45 for an A* etc... I doubt it will be that high though. It's like with the specimen papers. My school thought 54/60 was an A* and 48/60 was an A, and so on... But the grade boundaries for the actual exams were a lot lower. They use this high grade boundary for reassurment and to reduce chance of disappointment.
