# Which one did I do better on? watch

1. Last year I took 2 IGCSEs, and got a C on both of them. However, I am trying to find out something - which one did I do the best on?

The details of my marks are as follows:

IGCSE Geography
My mark was 80/180, which is a C.
To get a C you need 78, and to get a B you need 95.

IGCSE History
My mark was 57/100, which is a C.
To get a C you need 55, and to get a B you need 64.

So based on this, which subject out of the 2 would you say I did better on?
If any mathematicians could work this out with maths, that would be helpful.

Any mathematicians bringing maths into this would be helpful.
ok so im not very good at maths or anything but you got 57/100 in history which is 57% and you got 80/180 in geography what is 44% so based on that I would say history but tbh thats not really looking at the grade boundaries so i dont have a clue haha sorry
3. Yeah based on percentages History wins. But taking the grade boundaries into account as well, what do people think?

I would say History because you were proportionally nearer the B grade boundary.
