    Hey guys

    I was just wondering what percentages you'd need to get A*, A, B etc on your GCSEs. I've read its about 70% to get an A which I find hard to believe, but i dont really know. Im taking the IGCSEs but im guessing the marking would be very similar.

    Thanks

    There are no fixed raw mark percentages to be awarded any grade in GCSE. The grade boundaries are different for every set of exams, for every subject from every examiner, every year. They are entirely unrelated to those for igcse in the same subjects. If a paper is hard one year, the grade boundaries will be lower than average. They are increased if papers are easy. They are worked out after the exams following a careful statistical analysis of the results data. You should ask your teacher for guidance in your specific subjects with your specific examiner.

    For sciences and maths, grade boundaries for A*s are as low as 70%, but it varies every year
