yep this is correct

Once the grade boundaries have been worked out, then the marks are converted to ums which are then added up and converted to an overall grade

25% on each exam and 25% on the ISA. The UMS marks are added (out of 100 on each module) to give a total mark out of 400. You need 240 for a C grade. Your final grade will basically be an average of the scores you got in each subject. Note that this means that if you get a B or C in one module but do very well in the rest you can still get an A*. Also, if you take Foundation Tier and get 73 or more in your ISA, it's possible to get a B overall.

Route A for Double Science:

Core Science:
Biology B1 = 25%
Chemistry C1 = 25%
Physics P1 = 25%
Core Science ISA = 25%

Additional Science:
Biology B2 = 25%
Chemistry C2 = 25%
Physics P2 = 25%
Additional Science ISA = 25%


Route B for Double Science:

Core Science:
Paper 1 (B1A, C1A, P1A) = 35%
Paper 2 (B1B, C1B, P1B) = 40%
Core Science ISA = 25%

Additional Science:
Paper 1 (B2A, C2A, P2A) = 35%
Paper 2 (B2B, C2B, P2B) = 40%
Additional Science ISA = 25%
