    As i'm aware your two science grades you get at gcse are based on two science exams and two isas from year 10 and year 11 which are both worth 25% and the exam both 75%.

    If I got a C in my science paper and a D in my ISA would my grade average out as a D or would it be a C?

    I don't think you're right. You don't say which exam board you are with, but most (all?) boards have 3 exams (25% each) - 1 from each science - and a controlled assessment (e.g. an ISA) worth 25%, for each Science GCSE. To find your grade you need to add the 4 UMS marks up and then find the %, more than 70% would be a C.

    Hi, I am in year 10 and took my chemistry and physics exams in November, yesterday I got my results from aqa and it says 84%(A) for chemistry and 86%(A) for physics. I have also taken my Isa and gotten an A* although i do not know my exact marks.
    Does this mean that all i have to do now is one biology test and i am done my science gcse in year 10? Also I want an overall A* so is it possible, if I do well in biology to get an A* overall?

    Your ISA mark is not yet certain as it won't have been submitted to AQA yet and it may yet change. You need to average 90% for the A* so (even if the ISA mark stays the same) it is unlikely unless you re-sit Chemistry.

    Thanks Data, I don't really mind a re-sit as I can only learn more in another year and improve my grade.

    Re-sit this summer. If you re-sit next year you will have to do the whole thing - modular GCSEs are dead after this summer and in future you will have to do all the units of a GCSe in a single exam season to get a GCSE.
