Assuming this is AQA Science and the units are equally weighted at 25% each:

Translating each of your modules into percentages we get -->
B1 = 52%
C1 = 40%
P1 = 30%
ISA = 94%
This averages out to a 54% average in your GCSE Science.

Now by looking at last years AQA boundaries for Science GCSE core - you need 48%, 52%, 45%, and 74% for a B giving an average of 54.75%....

You got 54% and the B boundary was 54.75% last year - so either you get a B, or just miss it out by a hair and get a C according to my calculations..

However, this is assuming the grade boundaries from last year stay the exact same which is very unlikely, and if you feel the papers this year were harder than 2015 June papers, you probably got a B.

Core
in core science the total marks you could get for module 1 is 75 marks and B1,C1 and P1 are all unified, so 20- 29 marks could be a D grade, grade C could be 30-39 marks, grade B could be 40-50 etc.

They were harder especially biology

They all were out of 60 except from the isa

sorry, I was thinking about core science for OCR gateway, it has a total of 75 marks, it may be different for other exam boards.

My teachers at school say there is something called a ums converter but I have no idea what it is and it is used to work out grades.
