# URGENT: ****ed up Core Science at the start of the exams... (AQA) Watch

1. 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.

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.
2. 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!!
3. 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.
5. I think they just give you both grades together so yours may look like BB
