I posted previously asking whether i seriously needed only 66/100 for an A in GCSE Maths Higher Tier.

http://www.edexcel.com/iwantto/I%20w...Boundaries.pdf

Those are the latest grade boundaries. However. Somebody told me those are the grade boundaries after the grades i get on my papers are converted into UMS.

Could somebody just give it to me straight and tell me what I need on every paper to achieve an A?
ALL papers are out of 100 marks.

Thanks in advance!

Could you explain how you came to 80% from 66%?

Approx. 66%? Common sense?
Well. Like I said, some person told me its UMS or something... and I have no idea how it varies etc.
And the person above you wrote 80%... so...

Wait i didn't look at that link. I just assumed for most standard tests its around 90% A*, 80% A, 70% B, and so forth. Butt 66% is a ******* joke.

And? An A at A level is always near enough 80 %.

It's also around the 70 mark for Cambridge as well.

i know this is maybe irrelevant, but in November, on AQA, you only needed 75% out of 200 to get an A*!! So it goes to show the boundaries can fluctuate hugely!

That link is to the IGCSE boundaries, which are different

http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...5#post23192505
This thread was made by a very intelligent maths teacher who posted the boundaries;
(Out of 200 aka both calc + non calc paper)

the Higher paper:

A* 174
A 141
B 103
C 66
D 39
E 25


and for the Foundation:

C 156
D 128
E 101
F 74
G 47

So that's 174/200 for A* which is 87% and 141/200 for A which is a shocking 70.5%!

I am doing Edexcel IGCSE Higher But the grade boundaries are most probably roughly in the same areas anyways. So you said that one was 70%, whilst the IGCSE one was 66% so yeah
I lol'd at the 66/200 for a C xD!

This is quite an old thread, so I'm closing it.
