okay so I have a science GCSEs in June, I'm in year 10. I would like to get an A or an A*. I have already got an A* on my ISA that goes towards it , so if I did two higher papers and a foundation would I have a chance? Or would I have to do all higher papers?

The highest you can get in a Foundation paper is C, I believe you need to do Higher for all if you want to stand a chance of achieving an A*.

But, I might be wrong.

I wasn't even aware you could do two highers and a foundation tbh.

I'm not too sure OP but you would need a very high A* on the two highers and a high C on the foundation, if it's possible to get an A* that is.

If you're aiming A/A* though I would have said to do three highers for sure

Great thank you, in our school, not sure about other schools but we could do 1 high in biology and 2 foundations in the others or whatever you're the best at.

When I was in Year 10/11 I did higher for all of my Chemistry papers and got a B in Unit 1, a C on Unit 2 and 98/100 ums on Unit 3 and came out with an A overall. In Biology I did higher for Unit 1 and got a B and higher for Unit 2 and got a C then did foundation for Unit 3 biology, got full UMS and came out with a B overall. I would suggest doing all higher to give you the chance to reach the highest marks, this will probably give you a higher chance in gaining an A/A*! Hope this made sense and helped
