    They were talking about AQA FP2. AQA PHYA4 will definitely be lower.

    (Hopefully I don't jinx it)

    115/120 in this, 110/120 in Unit 5 and 44/60 in the EMPA. One raw mark in any exam off an A*. If only I'd not made two idiotic mistakes in the PHYA4 multiple choice

    Made my offer (A*AA), I just wanted an A* in Physics. Still can't believe the EMPA boundaries were as high as they are!

    A* A B being the b in physics which im unsure what to do about this! Our whole school got marked down for the isa. We all go D's?? When we were told the grades we got which was A equvilant of 51 ums and consiquently thats lost me an A for that drop. I dunno what to do about this guys as it cost others A* 's but my school is the type that just thinks aslong as we are at uni then put it under the rug sorta speak. Any advice ?

    Same here, my isa was 45/50 and I got an E... My grades were A*A*B, the B in physics. So I had to go through clearing... Awaiting a remark tho for unit 4

    Aw man I feel your pain! luckily my offer still got me in but its just ridiculous! I really wanted an a in physics. I got the same 45/50 which should of been 51 ums ? I think using the aqa converter and we can even resit the isa next year, only empa are available. Plus the school is more reluctant to inquire about it as the whole isa moderation is remarked not the individual. Its shocking really.
