    I recently got my results back and they were
    c1- 90 ums (A)
    s1-84 ums (A)
    Bio1-93 ums (A)
    Chem1-88 ums (A)
    Phy1-96 ums (A)

    I'm glad with these results but for the sciences I'm really finding it difficult to get A's in the isa, so I'm worried if I'll be able to achieve A* in A2 for bio and chem and an A overall for physics(dropping it).

    Please help!

    ISAs are awful, and a lot of schools cheat to get much higher marks on them. I wouldn't worry too much though, it's only 20%

    Don't worry. ISAs are evil and tend to be my weak point but as long as you get decent UMS in your other exams then you get enough of a buffer, generally, to get an A* overall.
