# What grade would this be??

Announcements Posted on
Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
1. So I do modern history and the overall grade is made up like this
Paper 1 = 37.5 %
Paper 2 = 37.5%
Controlled assessment = 25%

I need to know what my overall grade would be

I think I'll get a B on paper 1
A D on paper 2
And I got an A* on the controlled assessment
What will be my overall grade??? Thanks.

i think that overall u would get an A for what ur saying about what grades u got for the two papers and overall for the controlled asessment, im not too sure though, but i think u will get an A so dont stress too much

Btw i did not take history for GCSE so would not know as much
3. It depends on the marks
4. If you were to assume each mark as the midpoint of each grade boundary your grade would be a B:
0.375*55+0.375*75+0.25*95=72.5

That can't be correct bcos 55 marks isn't a B?

55% was the D, 75% was the B, 95% was the A*
