What is grade threshold in CIE?

A grade threshold is the minimum number of marks that a candidate needs to obtain a particular grade in a paper or in a subject. These thresholds are decided after each examination has been taken and marked.

What is the grade boundary for a level?

Overall International A level qualifications (cash-ins) are graded A* to E. A grade boundary is the minimum mark at which a letter grade can be achieved. For example, if the grade boundary for a B is 60 marks, then 60 is the minimum mark at which a B can be achieved. A mark of 59 would therefore be a C grade.

What is the threshold for an A?

A threshold is the range of scores that earn a corresponding grade. For example, often an A is earned by receiving 90-100% of the points possible and a B is earned by receiving 80-89% of the points possible. Teachers often modify these thresholds to achieve a desired grade distribution.
