    Of course not dear.
    I haven't a snobbish bone in my body as you well know, but my son Sheridan did get 100 in all of his modules at Physics.
    Clever boy that he is, he's now orf studying tapestry design and advanced needle work at university.

    Is this GCSE or A level. In GCSE the answer is no, it is in fact quite achievable as the A* (90UMS) boundary is often around 70-80% right. I myself managed it in biology chemistry and physics albeit not in every module.

    As for A level again no. I managed it in physics but only in one of the two modules alas missing out on the A*, so yes, it is possible, because someone has to get it, that's how UMS works

    Hardly, for AS physics last year, 100 UMS was capped at 58/75 for the unit 2 exam, and trust me unit 2 is a joke to anyone studying maths as well...

    Yep it certainly is. I got full UMS in all 3 sciences at GCSE, and then 296/300 in Biology AS (the only science I took), so it's achievable

    It's not "almost impossible", although fewer people seem to get above 95% in sciences than in Maths.

    If you study hard way before your exams (way in advance, around 5months prior), do lots of past papers it really won't be nowhere near close to impossible.

    Very easy for biology, harder for chemistry, no clue about physics

    Physics isn't too bad either. Practicals can have bad UMS curves though

    It's very unlikely. Although it might depend on your year because the practical assessments are changing for the new spec.

    I expect it's a natural talent that my Sheridan has.

    He probably inherited it from his mother. And of course my daddy was once such a brilliant mind.
