    I would like to know how igcse grades are given and what is weightage for eg why is chemistry 200 when for 3 papers the marks are 160. Do they really multiply your final marks for all 3 papers by 1.25 because of you multiple 160 by 1.25 we get 200.

    Check the latest grade threshhold for your paper.
    It will tell you if there is any weighting involved.

    What does that mean? Your grades are based on how many marks you get.
    If you want to know how many marks you need then just check the boundary for the grade you are aiming for. How they arrive to what is an A* or A is irrelevant.
