    Am I allowed by the AQA exam board to repeat an ISA? My science teacher said we aren't allowed but I know a lot of people who were allowed in other schools! If you CAN legally by the exam board repeat it can you please send me a link or something which PROVES it because I really want to repeat my ISA.
    Thank You!,

    You can't do the same ISA again, but you can do another one based on a different topic/theme.

    If you did a B2 ISA and did badly and want to resit you DO have the option, by AQA, to do the B3 ISA and have the best score sent off. This applies to all the sciences.

    Does AQA have to do their ISA in one sitting or something? With my exam board we were allowed to have help from teachers and improve it 1 million times to make sure they were at high/full marks

    Thank you!! We have repeated our biology ISA's as our first ones were voided by AQA as they were not done under exam conditions. I got a B in my ISA and want to repeat it but my teacher said this is not legal in the AQA exam board and NO SCHOOL should have ISA repeats. But I emailed AQA myself and asked them so I no have SOLID EVIDENCE stating that I can repeat the ISA ! D Thank you again!!
    P.S He cant refuse can he? ://

    Yes you can repeat the ISA, but this is down to your school, as they may feel this time is better spent finishing off the course and or revision.

    there is a list of ISAs the school chooses from. and yes it has to be done under conditions set by the each exam board...

    also remember is not just about what Grade you got.. its about the UMS mark you obtained.. as you may be on a high B 1 ums mark off an A...

    is it worth spending 2-3 lessons doing a new controlled assessment ???
