# Combined Science / Triple Science grade equivelant.

Watch
#1
We have an exam on Monday and our Science teacher gave us 6 papers and said we need to get a 9-9 equivalent to get a 7 for that science. Does this sound like an accurate conversion?
45 per paper is a 9-9 in combined compared to the Triple average of 53 per paper for a Grade 7.

No that's not right. A 9 is a 9. However, when you apply for sixth form/ college, they normally want you to get a grade higher than the normal grade entry but it depends on the sixth form/ college

I got 9,8,7 in the last mock these are just practice papers to do over the holidays she assigned I was wondering if that would work.
Mark-on-combined*(75/90) = Marks on Triple
^ Then compare this with the grade boundaries of the Triple paper that year

But what matters is doing well on the content there is. use the Combined Science grade boundaries. Anything else would be daft.,

So you can see the grade you would have received on triple based on those questions alone not including the triple ones as it was a combined paper.

But why do you want to know the grade you would've received on triple? Youre doing the combined so your combined grade is more significant

If you were taking triple you'd have studied more stuff and been able to answer more questions so that's not the grade you'd receive. Stop makinglife more complicated: you're doing Combined Science, don't worry about anything else.

OK, but those were Combined Science exams and so the sensible thing is to use the grade boundaries for those exams.
