    Tell us the exact mark so i can try to help

    For e.g ,me i got 46 raw mark on my add ISA.That equates to a UMS of 95.So if i were to get a mid B on three exams,i would get a bang on A(Srsly,1 mark lost and that is gone)
    Generally,if you got an A* on your ISA,an AAB on three science units would suffice for an A.

    The grade boundaries for the 3 remaining papers are quite similar, so for an A*, you're looking upwards of 48-50 maybe.
