# AQA triple science grade boundaries Watch

Thanks

Lawlet
2. Every Year it is the same! However Module grade boundaries tend to change and fluctuate depending on how easy or hard the paper is...

Biology----Chemistry----Physics =

A*= 360/400
A = 320/400
B = 280/400

C= 240/400
3. is it out of 400? how does it work out?

I know C1a and C1b add up to 100 but i thought P2 and P3 are out of 50?

Oh and the isa as well as, isn't it out of 50?
4. Are you doing AQA?

Biology = B1a + B1b = 100
B2 = 100
B3 = 100
ISA = 100

= 400

Same with Chemistry and Physics...

I am going AQA and oh i only just realize that Paper 2 and Paper 3 is out of 100 mark.

Also if i got 80/100 on paper 1, do i still have a chance to get an A*?
6. yes Deffoo..providing you get 2 A*s and an A..or whatever*

i don't understand what you mean?
8. Out of 400 UMS total:
360 = A*
320 = A
280 = B
240 = C
200 = D

Also if i got 80/100 on paper 1, do i still have a chance to get an A*? What UMS mark would 80/100 equal to?

That's an A for that module, you'd need 360-80=280 UMS on the remaining 3 modules. So a mid A* average on each.

Not imposible, but hard.
11. gingerbread85, how do they work out the UMS mark?
12. have anyone got any past paper for paper 2 that is not on the AQA website? Before 2008? Or this syallbus only started 2/3 years ago?

They take the "raw" grade and compare it with the boundaries for the paper. So if an A* is set as 32 marks and an A is 29 then 31 marks will get you 87 UMS (linear scale between boundaries. 100 UMS is usually 4 marks above an A*.

Nope, new in 2006/7 so the 2007 papers are just the "1"s. I posted the June 2010 papers in another thread.
15. Also what would my UMS mark be for physics, chemistry and biology so far, base on these results:

45 A*
40 A
35 B
30 C
and so on...

Biology- paper1- 47/50 paper 2- 40/50
Physics- paper1 -40/50 paper 2- 40/50
Chemistry- paper1 -40/50 paper 2- 40/50
16. ^^^Those are already converted in UMS.

Bio = 87/100 = A (Top A)
Physics = 80 = A (Just on an A)
Chem= 80 = A

60/100 = C
70/100 = B
80/100 = A
90/100 - A*
17. TheFootyKing19: Thanks i guess i would need to get UMS of 100 in paper 2 and paper 3 to get an A* then. Nevertheless the biology is more relaxed.
18. in my c123 i got a b 36/50 in my c456 i got an A 41/50 in my c7 i got an A 80/100 and in my coursework i got an A 80/100 what grade does that give me overall

Coursework??

Are you sure your exam board is AQA?
They scraped coursework around 6 years ago, plus your exam codes (C123, C456, etc.) don't make sense.
Out of 400 UMS total:
360 = A*
320 = A
280 = B
240 = C
200 = D
I don't understand this, because I got an A in p1a, p1b and p2. I got A*s in my ISAs and I got 1 B in P3. My science teacher is tellling me that my overall physics GCSE is at a grade B-and i don't understand why. Shouldn't it be an overall A considering I got all As and only 1 B? Or is the P3 exam a larger percentage of the overall physics GCSE?
