    hey guys!

    I took my cie igcse economics exam this May/June. I did pretty fairly
    in my Paper 2- structured questions ( I would have lost about 15-16
    marks, tops).

    However, paper 1- (mcq paper) didn't go at all well for me.
    ( I had three exams on the same day and didn't at all practice for it
    and it came to a point where I was guessing most of my mcq answers).
    Considering that, I am really worried my grade will be affected greatly.
    [paper 2 is 70% of the grade. while the remaining 30% comes from the mcq paper.]
    I would like to know what usually happens in this kind of a situation.
    If I had come up to the A/A* in paper 2, will my grade drop to a B/C
    because of my mcq marks?

    do i still have a chance of scoring an A*/A if at all?

    Many thanks!

    It really depends on the grade boundaries, how do you think you did on the Multiple choice, if you gave a mark, you would be able to see what you might've got last year basing it off of percentages by using the CIE IGCSE Economics grade threshold table for June 2015. http://www.cie.org.uk/programmes-and...bles/june2015/ You do still stand a chance, be hopeful, you may have done better than you think! Good luck!

    i guess by the looks of it 15/30 in mcq. i did component 22 and 12. that falls into a D for the mcq component i guess. so will the examiners give that D so much of weight age that even if i got an A/A* in the other component to drag me down to a C? thank you for your support nonetheless.
