    I got an A in my core ISA and A* in my additional ISA and after each of my exams I've gone through the paper and predicted how many marks I got so just need to know how many marks in total from b1, c1, p1 I need for a B and from b2, p2, c2 for a B

    I think you're looking around 75%? I think its 80% for an A and 90% for an A*

    What do you mean? On foundation you can't get higher than a C I believe.

    Yeah I know I've failed the higher tier. Between all of the unit 1 exams I've predicted that my total mark will be 80:180, that's only about 44% haha

    It doesn't really matter unless you want to do science in the future. If you do, make sure you get C's and make sure you do an A-level in science or a BTEC. Don't worry about it

    Hehe yeah A-levels are very hard even for top students! Id recommend a BTEC or Apprenticeship.
