Gsce Combined Science

How is the GCSE Combined Science grade calculated?, are the marks for all the exams added together and then a grade or each exam graded seperately and then the average of those grades.
The GCSE Combined Science grade is calculated by adding together the marks for all the exams in each of the three science disciplines (biology, chemistry, and physics), giving a total mark out of 240. This total mark is then converted into a grade (9-1) using grade boundaries set by the exam board. Therefore, each exam is graded separately, but the final grade is based on the total marks from all three exams.
