    Hello,

    I am feeling so worried at the moment. I had recieved my ISA score for AQA biology and I had gotten '30' marks which came to a D. (I can't believe I was 3 marks off a C)

    I have opted in to picking the foundation paper as I am not the best at biology...

    Is there still a chance for me of getting a C? Or is that not possible? I am feeling so worried and stressed.

    Thank you

    But with GCSE I think it's different considering you can only get a C in below in foundation

    So do you by all means HAVE to take foundation? Or is it an option. I think it'd be easier to pass in higher idk :s

    I don't think I can ask to do higher paper now, it's too late she opted me in for foundation. Maybe I could try to ask again.

    Your ISA grade has significantly weight than your tests so don't worry. Last year I got a U for my chemistry ISA but still got overall C. You still have the opportunity to retake the ISA this year or the next

    Did you do higher or foundation paper? I'm in college I don't think I'll be able to re-take the ISA

    No it's not impossible, the ISA is 25%, and it's a high D. If you get C's in all the other science papers (quite strong C's) you'd be looking at a Mid C grade. You can still pass

    You could get normal low C's on two of them and maybe a middle C on one and get a C.
