    I got a B in my unit 1 and unit 2 biology exams. If I get an A* in my isa and an A* in my unit 3 will it add up to an A ? Because I need to take biology for A-level. And my teachers not letting me retake unit 2.

    It depends on your UMS marks for the unit 1 and 2, and what UMS marks you get for your ISA and unit 3 exam. If you have a high UMS for your unit 1 and unit 2 and you get well into the A* range for your ISA and Unit 3 exam, then you could get an A overall as all of the things make up 25% each, but it does depend on your previous marks and also the grade boundaries of the other two things as well.

    okay as your ums is unknown just say you got 75 UMS in both B1 and B2, and say you can manage to get around 93UMS in your ISA then:

    75+75+93= 243

    320 ( what you need for an A overrall) - 243

    with the scores i've given you will need 77UMS in B3 to get an A overall in biology
