Pearson Edexcel International GCSEs use the 9–1 grading scale which is also used for the Ofqual regulated GCSEs. The new scale was introduced by the UK government to raise standards and recognise outstanding performance. It improves differentiation between learners with a nine (9–1), rather than an eight (A*–G), point grading scale. This means that students are ideally placed to make progress to International A Levels (IAL) and to universities worldwide.
IGCSE Reporting Scale
Achieving a minimum of a 4 is required for a pass for each IGCSE subject.
Students will receive a final grade out of 9 based on their results in the exams/ coursework for each subject.
