Hi!
So basically I've taken the three separate sciences with AQA for GCSE and I've been predicted A*'s in all three of them. I've done the ISAs for each science and got A*'s in the Chemistry and Physics and I think I've got an A for Biology but what I want to know is how the overall grades are calculated?

I found C2 and P2 to be incredibly hard this year, so I was wondering, if someone got an A* on P1, B on P2 and C on P3 and an A* on the ISA, what would their overall grade be?

Thanks!

High B/Low A depending on exact UMS percentages.

Doubt it will be a low A, the C will drag it down.

Potential situation (although unlikely)

100+100+79+69=348 UMS

Which is an A.

Yes, but that's assuming she got 100UMS in both P1 and her ISA and that she was just 1UMS off the next grade in P2 and P3. Realistically, it's not going to happen. Well, it's highly unlikely.
Anyways, OP, if you're clever enough to get an A* in P1 and your ISA, you probably haven't got a C in P3
