    Hi folks! Just got a little question My Chemistry portfolio is with a lack of a better word sh*t I think im on a 4 Don't ask me how i managed but I did, I was wondering seeing as I'm really not bad at chemistry nowadays ( just on hte portflio part) and ihave my HL chemistry exam comming up will i be able to get a 7? In my mocks i got a 7 but the IA wasen't counted and I have no idea how to calculate and stuff so if someone knows if its possible to get a 6 or a 7 with a 4 in the IA part please let me know. Thank you all!!

    all the best!

    sorry to say so but i think that with a 4 in IA it is highly unlikely that u get a 7 in ur final grade even if u have pretty good exam papers..

    but still maybe your IA grades are a bit higher than what u now think so i guess if u have a high 7 in ur written exams (sth like 90%), with a 5 in ur IA u may get a 7 in your finals!!

    as for a 6 i think with a 7 in ur exams and a 4 in ur IA u can get it

    fingers crossed and good luck:yy:

    Well the IA is worth 24% of your final grade, so if you think you've got a 4 in ur IA, then you have essentially got between 22-27 out of 48 which means you are walking into the exam with 11-13.5% of your final grade out of the 24% that the IA is worth. In order to get a 7 from last year's grade boundaries, you would need at least 80% overall, which means you can still get a 7 overall, so long as you don't lose (roughly) 20% overall - so you can probably afford to lose another 6-9%, but this is all worked out from last year's grade boundaries, which may go up or down this year.

    nice calculations. agree, there is a chance of getting a 7 if you study like crazy. however, about the grade boundaries. during the last exam, i.e. november 05, one should have gotten 38 out of 40 to get a 7!!! well, that's not really 80%. but then again, on paper 2 one should have gotten 69 out of 90 (but that paper 2 was damn tough!!!).

    again, if you are a good boy (and from "sammm" i hope i can assume you are a boy; if your username was a joke, then sorry) all the way till thursday may 18th, then you have a chance.

    all the best of luck to you
