    What exam board?
    You get a mark out of the maximum amount available, and that is then converted to UMS which makes up 25% of your overall UMS/grade.

    If you're doing double science, you do:

    Core - 1 ISA, 25% of your core grade.

    Additional - 1 ISA, 25% of your core grade.

    You get two separate GCSEs.
