    I was wondering what happens if I fail in just one paper in a subject. I did both AS and A level chemistry. Do I still get a grade because my other papers went well? Or do I not get a grade at all because I failed one paper?

    You get a grade based on all your papers together- so yes you will get a grade even if you fail one paper and do well in the others.

    Paper 4 happens to be the one with the highest weightage, around 38%. Will I still get a grade based on the other papers that I gave?

    As long as you did well enough on the other papers to secure a grade, then you will get a grade even if you fail paper 4. Of course you want to do well in paper 4 so your overall grade is higher! Good luck.

    Thank you so much! The goal is to do the best I can. You can say it's just the stress getting to me at this point but I shall give it my 100%.
