I thought C3 was a lot harder than I expected, but then C1 was pretty easy and I think I put too much detail in some of my anwsers and kind of ran out of time a little, and C2 was sort of in the middle, I was kind of unsure about a lot of the anwsers I put when I came out of the exam

I was predicted an A* but I wasn't sure about the exams really so I expected an A or a B, but I cam out with an A*!!!! I was SO chuffed

My first ISA mark was 38 pre mediation but then we did a second one and I got 42 pre moderation, which stayed the same after it was moderated

That must've been so great! I'm dreading getting my results, I thought that C2 was wwwaaayyyy harder than C3. I found both of the six mark questions quiet hard in C2/3 but the one in C1 was AMAZING I'm nervous of my ISA being moderated down, seeing as I got 44 which is right on the grade boundary...

I really can't remember, I did my core ISA back in 2011/2012 and additional ISA I redid in year 11 and was one mark away from an A*

All exams went fine, I struggled slightly with c1 because it's not proper chemistry, but not really. I got A* overall, which is what i was predicted:
c1: a* (93ums)
c2: a* (93ums)
c3: a* (100ums)
isa: a* (98ums)
384ums overall

My ISA mark did not decrease, however, due to the movement of the ISA grade boundaries this year I would have got 100ums instead of 98 (my best mark was 47/50)

Great results, are you doing chemistry at A- Level?

1. I found unit 1 the hardest, for some reason I suck at 'how science works' questions. The others were quite straight forward.
2. I got an a*
c1: 83
c2: 94
c3: 100
c4: 100
3. My expected grade was an A or above.
4. No, it didn't change my mark after moderation.
Woop woop
Can anyone recommend any books/ advice for the how science works questions, please?

Yep, to a2. Still deciding whether I want to study chemistry or physics at uni.

Please take a look at my thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2809725
It has all the revision materials I used for my Science GCSE. (Core&Additional&Triple). The books that I posted the link to contain the 'how science works' parts that you are looking for. Hopefully it's the same exam board, sorry if it isn't!

1) I found C1 and C2 really good but I probably hadn't revised enough for C3 and found a lot of the fact-based questions difficult.
2) C1: 91 UMS
C2: 94 UMS
C3: 83 UMS
ISA:88 UMS
Oveall: A (356 UMS)
3) Was hoping for an A* but still pleased
4) Went down 2 UMS

1) How did you find the test?
C1 was fine, C2 was fine, C3 was awesome
2) What did you get?
C1- 99UMS
C2- 94UMS
C3- 100UMS
ISA- 78UMS (!!!!!!)
So A* in total
3) What grade did you expect?
A*
4) Did your ISA mark change after being moderated?
I don't know, but it's scary to think my ISA almost dragged me down to an A. I actually got a B in the ISA, my high exam UMS pulled me up.
