Your overall grade is done by 

90% + =A*

80% = A

70&= B


50% =D

40%= U

Its seriosuly annoying because at the moment in chemistry i am on 79.7% so im o.3% off an A so i am retaking a module in a months time x

21+ for a C

25+ for a B

30+ for an A

36+ for an A*


Grade Boundaries for the structured have not been published yet.

Multiple Choice is marked the same as B1


Grade Boundaries for the structured have not been published yet. However, last year it was 49/60 for an A* - 27 for a C

Hope this has helped.

No offence but are you sure this is the right mark scheme - its just that last year I sat the exam and for biology B1A I got 37 marks which was equivalent to a B and in B1B I got a 43 marks which was equal to an A (I think it was 45 marks to get a A*)

Also what exam board are your school with ? I'm with AQA

@ rimii_spongeBoB14, you are much too young, still in year 9 to be considering this.

Best option is to ask your science teachers.

They usually have all the information about this. If they do not know, then the reason is you year 9's are doing a new science endorsed by Edexcel, where you need ALOT less marks for get HIGH grades. All your question numbers are reduced, inversely the verdict with time allocated. I also think coursework has  been eliminated.

Recapping, your teachers will give you the best answer to this.

What exam board is it? For AQA, it's roughly about half marks(about 21/45) for a C. I did a mock test in B3 and it was 26/45 for a B..

them modules sound like the edexcel board which means with ums marks which is what the examining board convert your mark to the marks are as follows:

36-40 = A*

32-35 = A

26 - 31 = B

20 - 25 = C

14 - 19 = D

and so on, however depending on how hard or easy the paper was the grade boundaries can change however this are the general ones and they mostly stick to them. Hope this helped!

Ok so how do you find out the max mark because I'm trying to work out the percentages and stuff but I don't know what the max amount of marks you can get is so where could I find that out, thanks ?
