Hi all!

I was just wondering if anyone knew if there was a place where we could find out the grade boundaries for each of the GCSE subjects - I'd love to know how well I've done in maths (edexcel); I got an A*, so it'd be great to know just how higha mark I needed to get for it.

-Thanks in advance.

Nope, I found CCEA to be 100x harder. If you're doing Edexcel, count yourself lucky!

I think Edexcel is quite easy to be honest, and OCR is the hardest. It is around 80% for A* for Edexcel Maths. (i.e. 160 / 200 (paper5+6))

For Edexcel Maths the grade boundaries are usually:

>= 25% C
>= 40% B
>= 60% A
>= 80% A*

but it varies from year to year.

In English, it's usually:

>= 38/54 B
>= 43/54 A
>= 49/54 A*

And in History:

>= 47% C
>= 57% B
>= 67% A
>= 77% A*

As for the other subjects, you can generally just go on the Maths boundaries (80% for an A*, etc).

That's all I know I'm afraid.

Unfortunately for those of us in N.Ireland who sit CCEA exams, CCEA are the hardrest marking board and are sat by most of the Grammer schools here. They set harder papers and mark harder than most other boards.

UMS levels the playing field - there are no 'hard' and 'easy' exam boards, they make well sure of that.
