Economics A2 Grading System Watch

Report Thread starter 3 years ago
Hello! I'm not really sure how to structure this question but here it goes.

Basically I'm studying CIE A Levels and am in the A2 stage now and somehow I messed up my Economics paper 4 last week due to personal reasons. I know I shouldn't be finding excuses but yeah. So I was wondering like, how does CIE grade the papers? If I get below an E for paper 4, but get an A for paper 3, does it mean I pass the whole syllabus? Cause according to the grade thresholds, we only need around 70+ total raw marks to pass? I got a B during my AS Level for economics, so I was hoping that it'll cover up for my A2? Or do I automatically fail the syllabus because I failed my paper 4? Thanks in advance! I'm planning on retaking it anyways despite passing during my degree, but yeah.
