    Hi guys I'm currently in year 11 and have just done my Biology GCSE.
    My grades:
    B1- 86/100 A (UMS)
    B2- 76/100 B (UMS)
    B3- 100/100 A* (UMS)
    Biology ISA 39/40 A* (Raw marks)

    The reason why I listed my grades are because I would like to know whether I could get an overall A* in Biology, to get an overall A* you need 360/400 and if you add my UMS marks you will see that I'm on 262 (excluding the ISA) therefore in the ISA I need 98% UMS. I need to know whether 39/40 is 98%, I asked the head of science in my school and he told me that 38/40 or above in all ISA's are 100/100 (UMS converted), do you guys think this is true?

    It will be really helpful if you can answer my questions as you can see I'm really worried
    Thanks in advance!!

    I currently do Triple Science, I spoke to the Acting Head of Science at my School yesterday and I was told to re-sit my B1 module as this was stopping me from achieving the A*. My marks so far are as follows:

    B1- 72/100
    B2- 83/100
    B3- 90/100
    ISA- 100/100

    All of the above are the UMS Scores.

    I am pretty sure you will achieve an A*, so don't worry!

    39/40 will be 100 UMS

    86 + 76 + 100 + 100 = 362 - Got your A*

    Student: 741230:
    72 + 83 + 90 + 100 = 345 - Got your A - 15 off an A*
What's the best type of cheese?
