GCSE Grade Boundaries

If you’ve done a set of CGP’s GCSE Practice Papers, or the practice papers in the back of a GCSE Exam Practice Workbook, you can estimate the grade you’re currently working at by comparing your total mark to the grade boundaries from last summer’s GCSE exams.

Grade boundaries are set for each individual exam, so they’re likely to change from year to year. You’ll find the latest information for each exam board on their website – just select the board you’re doing below and search for GCSE grade boundaries.

The grade boundaries for all subjects an exam board offers are kept in the same place, so you’ll need to search for the subject you need. If you’re doing science or maths, you’ll also need to choose your tier — Higher (H) or Foundation (F). The marks required for each grade are presented something like this:

In this example, if you were taking Foundation Juggling, you’d need 100 marks to get a Grade 4. If you were taking Higher Juggling, you’d need 115 marks to get a Grade 6.

Remember — any grade you get on these papers is no guarantee of getting that in the real exam, but it should give you a rough idea of how you’re getting on.
