Can someone explain just how important my coursework will prove to be?Watch
Example, I got A* in my English Language coursework, 80/80! Once I got my overall result, it stood at A.
Recently, I did two science ISAs, one at A* and the other A. Just how much of an advantage have I got? I'm scared for science, but I'm incredibly glad I've got it. I've got 9 science exams, basically all of them. So how crucial are these ISA results going to be?
I know exams differ a lot from ISA's, especially in terms of the help you receive, but just think that if you are capable of such high marks already that you can achieve highly as well in the exams. Just take each exam at a time and learn the content; you already know how to apply it judging by your ISA.
Best of luck!!

Like Addiction said, the exams carry more weight in Science, they carry 75% of the weight split into 3 exams.
Your ISA can act as a backup plan just in case if u flop in one exam. So you're at some advantage. Just focus on your exam though
I've got a A* in Bio ISA and B in Physics ISA this year
Last year, I got an A* in Chem ISA
Its there to make everything fair between different series.
Lets say I get 48/60 in a Science Unit in June 2012 but my paper was hard though. Another student does the same unit in June 2013 but gets 53/60 but his paper is easier than mine. We'll still get similiar UMS if not the same.
In your example, you'd probably get an A*.
