Grade thresholds taken for Syllabus 9708 (Economics) in the October/November 2008
minimum mark required for grade:
The thresholds (minimum marks) for Grades C and D are normally set by dividing the mark
range between the B and the E thresholds into three. For example, if the difference between
the B and the E threshold is 24 marks, the C threshold is set 8 marks below the B threshold
and the D threshold is set another 8 marks down. If dividing the interval by three results in a
fraction of a mark, then the threshold is normally rounded down.
Grade Thresholds are published for all GCE A/AS and IGCSE subjects where a
corresponding mark scheme is available.
