    I got an A for this in my mock. However, in the real one it feels as though I have:

    (FOR AQA BY THE WAY).

    B1 - C
    C1 - B
    P1 - C
    ISA - No idea what grade I got.

    In Additional Science:
    B2 - C
    C2 - [probably a B]
    P2 - [probably a C]
    ISA - A* (full UMS according to last year's grade boundaries)

    What overall grades are possible, assuming I have reached the minimum UMS for each exam? It's really pissing me off that I've slipped.

    For additional science if you got minimumn UMS marks you would get a B and also for Core you most probably will get a B too if your ISA is at least a B. Don't get so down about your results, sometimes when you over focus on a paper you feel like you did really badly but end up doing well! Thinking about what grades you got might just make you stress even more!!

    Additional: 100+60+70+60= 290 UMS overall B

    Core: 60+70+60= 190

    Say you got 100 in the ISA highest = 290 UMS which is a B, so the highest you could get is a B

    Right... I've definitely messed up Core Science. I could have calculated the grades myself but can't find the specification for Dual Award Science (looked at Science A one or something instead). Could you link me to the correct one?

    Thanks.

    I think they just give you both grades together so yours may look like BB
