    I mean like, how are the grades calculated? is it the same as school?

    for example say i got 60/130 for p2 and 36/70 for p4

    is it calculated like 96/200= 48% which is equivalent to E?

    or is it something else?

    I know! I can't find anything either! Don't be worried! I have only done one past paper so far. Starting them next week. The grade boundaries say for example, maths : 3H & 4H max mark 100, A for 2011 would of been 64. But two papers is 200 marks 🤔 Very confusing and also hard to explain lol

    The grades are graded on a curve, for example:

    The top 5 percentile will get A*s, the top 50 percentile will get Cs, you will only find this out on results day about the exact values.

    I did IGCSE (cambridge syllabus) in M/J 2017. It's different every year but this is how I always did it (estimate):

    90-100 A*
    80-89 A
    70-79 B
    60-69 C

    Usually, if you get above a 90, you are guaranteed to get an A*.
