    Basically found out I got an A instead of and A* I wanted. What grades do you think I will need to get to achieve A* overall, considering I'm strong in chemistry and biology and not so in physics.

    Thanks.

    Our teacher said that the difference between an A and a A* isn't too much but the ISA's can bring u up a whole grade but an A is really good so you shouldn't worry as the A can bring u up a grade or even 2

    My friend got DDD in all 3 sciences and a B in ISA and got a C overall. So, it could be a different between a fail and pass. So, you could get an A*!

    Trust me ISAs count 25% of your grade and can be the difference between one grade and another .It helped boost my overall grade up,
    B1 68/100 C
    C1 67/100 C
    P1 59/100 D
    ISA 87/100 A
    Total = 281/400 B
    280=B

    They can cause a massive difference! The UMS points from an A* ISA and the UMS from a paper A* are the same.
