    Hey guys!
    So basically I have a question.
    I'm starting to get rather worried about my exams come June-July next year.
    I do triple science, and am predicted an A in physics, an A in chemistry and an A in biology.
    In my three additional science ISA's, I got 39/50 for physics, 40/50 for chemistry and 39/50 for biology.
    I did another chemistry further ISA and got 39/50 too (but I'll be using the additional one as it's slightly better) but what I wanted to ask is, that is it still possible for me to get an A overall in each science with these ISA grades?
    If it helps the grade boundaries last year were 40 for an A, 35 for a B etc (in 5's) so 39 is a very high B.
    Please help as I'm really stressed and concerned ((

    Of course it's still possible. The ISA controlled assignment only makes up 25%. It has equal weighting with all the other 3 units. If you get a B in your ISA, and you get A, A, A in your three papers, you get an A Overall generally.

    No you need to get a high A in the other 3 exams also. (Just a few marks above an A grade. This is to equal the UMS into an A overall)
