This depends on the exam board. If you know which unit/number the paper was and which exam series (I would assume either 2019 or 2018) then have a go at Googling the grade boundaries for that exam series (eg AQA GCSE grade boundaries 2019), click on the PDF from the exam board website then scroll down to English and the correct paper to see.

These should be the grade boundaries, but you might need to scale your mark if you only did part of a paper:

42/60 is the same as 56/80. It's 70%. If you were able to maintain that over the whole paper, it would be a grade 7 using last year's boundaries.
