    Does any one have the grade boundaries for last year? I'm talking about the overall grade, not the module grades.

    Thanks

    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

    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?

    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*?

    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.

    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.

    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

    ^^^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*

    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.

    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.

    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?
