I got an A* in all 3 of my ISAs but I find exams to be hard especially chemistry, so I was wondering what I would need to get an A or a B in them, in History my coursework was useless because I got an A* in that then an A* in an exam but it was only an A overall when I did it last year.
What do I need in my exams to get a B or an A in physics/biology/chemistry Watch

so obviously it depends on how high an A* you got in your isa's. Let's just say for example you wanted to get an A in a science and you had full UMS in your isa (which btw you can calculate using the UMS converter on the AQA website but be careful because grade boundaries can change. e.g. For chemistry last year it was 48/50). So if you had full UMS you would need to get an average of 74 ums per exam to get an A, so you're looking at about a middle B in each of the exams to get an A.
If you got a low A* in the isa it would make a huge difference because ISAs are only 25% but you'd be looking at more like 78 ums per exam for an A so a slightly higher B for each exam.
