    Last year I was told that both my science ISAs were at an A* but on results day they both went down to a low A . I am wondering if that is normal as my core science went down from 47-42 and additional science went from 45-40. Both going down 5 raw marks.

    It only get's moderated down if your school marked it too leniently. Last year, our school's got moderated up, which led to some people getting more than full marks (but it got capped at full marks)

    sometimes everyone's goes down if the exam board doesn't agree with the marking of the sample that they ask for. for example, mine and everyone else in my year's french speaking went down by 10 marks which is 5 marks per speaking exam. so that might have happened to you as well?

    Possibly but it wouldn't have made any difference in terms of grades and I didn't really care that much anyway.
