1. 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.

I got the exact same as you in my coursework, and I was told I needed 36 ...
11. Yeah you need 36 for an A* and 26 for an A. (Got the same results too)

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

E.g (0.843 x 29) = 24.447

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?

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.
15. My teacher said she went to an exams meeting and she got it from there
16. Can someone help me out..
I got 29 on the S&L
I got 42 on the CW
So is it impossible for me to get an A*?

Oh I see. Makes sense because the total marks is 125.
18. guys i need ur help. My teacher has been useless and she's hasn't been able to help us with structuring the answers. Could u guys help by telling me where we have to use PEE or whatever for the questions please.
19. 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.
(Someone may want to check my understanding)
20. 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.
