    Hi, if I get CCF in Biology, Physics then Chemistry in Double Award Science as I'm predicting (disaster at Chemistry), do I get CC overall?
    Or does the bogus grade in one science bring down the CC to something worse and if so, what?
    CC is fine for me overall as I intend doing non-science A levels.
    Please help....thank you.

    It depends which specification you are doing and what actual marks you get in the different units.

    Well say 65%, 65% and 22%, and its Double Award Science non-modular....all 6 papers in May/June.

    Still confused. Is there any controlled assessment or is this an IGCSE? Which exam board?

    NICCEA, and 25% controlled assessment GCSE.
    Basically can I "CC in the bank" and not worry about a poor Chemistry mark if that happens or would that Chemistry score "pull down" my CC to CD or worse?
    Thank you.

    Assuming you also get a mid C (65) in the CA, that makes an average of (65+65+65+22)/400= 54.25 which I think would be DD, a fraction more and you'd get CD.

    BRILLIANT!!....so, 60+60+60+60= 240/400= 60% CC.
    Every 1% dropped in Chem has to be gained somewhere else.
    You have been very helpful...thank you!!
    One further question bothering me please?
    Wouldn't 60% in Higher Level be more attainable than 88-90% at Foundation Level?
    I know they drop the harder questions,....but then destroy you be setting a ridiculous high 88-90% C target?
    Please help?

    You've got the idea.

    In general I agree but if you've never been taught any of the Higher tier stuff then perhaps not.

    Taught Higher Level, but if Mocks dodgy or borderline at all teachers may encourage entry to Foundation as they say it can be "safer bet for a C"....but I disagree....rather try Higher to get 60+% than Foundation at ridiculous 88-90%.
    Who gets final say which I enter...me/my parents or teacher......cause my parents will overrule teacher at meeting if needed.???
    Thanks

    It depends on your school's policy, so I can't help you there.
