    Hi guys, I was wandering if I could get an A* overall in my chemistry gcse with an A as my isa grade. I really want an A* overall in chemistry. I asked my teacher if I could redo it but she said that an A grade is really good and there is no point in redoing it. I am worried as I have got an A* in both of my biology and physics ISA. Thanks for your help!

    Yup...it's still possible.

    Do you know your (raw) mark? And then convert it to UMS and see how close it is to A*?

    You can still get A* but make sure your unit exams are high...aim to get at least 2 A*s out of the 3 exams and that should put u in a better position..
