For example, if the difference between the B and the E threshold is24 marks, the C threshold is set 8 marks below the B threshold and the D threshold is set another 8 marksdown. If dividing the interval by three results in a fraction of a mark, then the threshold is normally roundeddown. Grade A* does not exist at the level of an individual component.The thresholds for the
are determined first by adding together the thresholds for the componentstaken by the candidate. A reduction may be made at the higher grades depending on the correlation of thepapers. If the maximum raw marks for the components are not in the weighting/relationship specified in thesyllabus, a weighting is applied to arrive at the overall thresholds. The A* threshold is calculated using thedifference between A and B as a starting point.For AS Level components, small adjustments may be made to the marks awarded for some versions of thepaper in order to neutralise any differences in the difficulty of the different versions and so make sure that allcandidates face an equal demand.The maximum total mark for this syllabus is
for A Level and
for AS Level.
