Hello, I am taking my IGCSEs this year (in fact I have already done a few exams) and I was wondering what are the general percentages you need to aim in order to get a level 9/A*.

I have found while looking at previous grade boundaries the percentage needed for A* was around 75-80 or above and I was wondering what will a level 9 would be as this year is the first year with IGCSE sciences being a 9-1 grading system.

I am very aware that they change the grade boundaries slightly each year.

Thanks

Over 75 for the lowest grade boundary mark schemes (there was one really hard past biology paper that we did which had the 9 as 79% or something) but generally over 85 for most things and expect it to be over 90 for a lot. It really depends on the exam and board you are doing it with.
