What is a Good Grade for IGCSE?


IGCSE curriculum prepares you for higher education and helps you stay focussed on education and not just on grades. The Cambridge curriculum offers various benefits to students and the curriculum prepares students to do much better when compared to their peers from other boards.

IGCSE has passing grades from A* to G, with A* being the highest grade, followed by A to G. There is also a grade U which means ungraded.

A* is the best grade and G is the lowest. Each grade translates into Percentage Uniform Marks ( PUM). This is not the total mark obtained for the syllabus. It is a point on the common scale for all syllabuses to show whether the candidate’s performance is close to the top, middle or bottom of the grade.

Grade PUM Range
A* 90-100
A 80-89
B 70-79
C 60-69
D 50-59
E 40-49
F 30-39
G 20-29

From the table, we see that a Grade B translates to a PUM of 70-79. While this may not be the best grade it is considered to be fairly good. A good grade can help you seek further admission, it is also important to remember that IGCSE prepared you for further higher education. While trying to focus on the grades, it’s better not to lose focus on the learning.

How much do you think your IGCSE grades would impact your admission into a good university? Your IGCSE grades may not directly impact your admission but definitely helps understand you as a person. Good grades in IGCSE and senior levels shows consistency, passion and motivation but a fairly average grade in IGCSE and good grades in senior school shows your ability to improve. So don’t get too stressed out thinking of your IGCSE grades and digress from the learning, but definitely yes, don’t fail it though!!!
