    Your teachers won't know your exact grade because it needs to be scaled out of 60 by the exam board. They take the marks of everyone who sat the ISA, and use complex statistics and equations to work out your final mark. The closest estimate to use now would be to compare your result out of 50 with last year's class results.

    Last year it was 38 for an A and 35 for a B.

    the garde boundaries for ISAs very rarely change year on year so going by last years boundaries would give you a good indication.

    The boundaries aren't likely to change a great deal, so you're probably looking at an A as well with 39 on 50.

    That's what my teacher told me for this year's whilst giving us our grades in class.
    It seems as though it's one mark higher than last year as well..

    45/50 - A*
    42/50 - A
    39/50 - B
    36/50 - C

    Have a nice day!

    * This is an estimate I reckon, and is subject to going up/down after all of the scores have been sent to the exam bodies in the summer.. But I reckon it's a good estimate, even if the boundaries are shockingly high :/ *

    Thanks for letting me know. I am so angry now though, I was only 3marks away from an A. I made silly mistakes.

    Arghhhhhhhhhh I wanted to know the same thing, got 39/50 in my A2 and 42/50 in my AS. I was really surprised by last year's grade boundaries, I had 35/50 in my AS and my teacher told me that I should get a C but ended up getting 28 raw marks which was an E. I reckon 39 will be about a C this year (really hope it's not).

    I know it's pretty daft..
    To be fair last year I think I got 44/50 and got 54 UMS, so maybe it might go down slightly!
    Fingers crossed and good luck in your summer exams,
