    Hi there, it would really be helpful to know how to even calculate IGCSE English Grade Boundaries. I got 32 marks in my coursework and I got 20 in my speaking and listening exam. Currently I am doing the extended paper and I would like to know how many marks I would actually need to achieve a grade C? Thanks Guys!

    You need 39.

    I got 28 on S&L and 44 for coursework. I need 42 for an A* according to my teachers.

    The way you calculate it is by multiplying your speaking and listening mark by 0.843.

    E.g (0.843 x 29) = 24.447

    Then you add that mark to your coursework

    E,g 49 + 24.447 = 73.447 (Rounds down)

    The Grade boundaries then are C: 76 B: 86 A: 96 A*: 106

    So for this individual to get an A* it is 33 marks

    Why 0.843?

    I think it's because the S+L is out of 25. So to convert it to the 20% it's worth, you have to do that.

    Oh I see. Makes sense because the total marks is 125.

    To me that would seem like you need 40, which given I believe it's out of 50 isn't too bad? It's certainly possible, anyway.

    Okay so I'm not particularly sure how to work mine out:

    Got 38/40 for the Argumentative + 9/10 for Reading
    Then got 36/40 for the Persuasive
    And again got 36/40 for the Narrative

    For my speaking and listening, I got 23/30 overall..

    So I'm not entirely sure how to work out what mark I need to get tomorrow to get an A overall.

    Someone help me please
