    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.

    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

    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.
