Grades assignation

Submitted by guest (not verified) on 11 March 2008 - 2:41pm

Greetings to all my online buddies!
Does anyone has an idea how CXC assigns grade to subjects? I may seems kind of vague asking such question. Here is an example to make my question a little more comprehensible.
92%-100% Distinction
85%-91% Grade 1
78%-84% Grade 2
60%-77% Grade 3
40%-59% Grade 4
20%-39% Grade 5
0%-19% Grade 6
The above method of assigning grades is not true. Note: Once more it's an example. If anyone of my online buddies has information on the correct method of grade assignation which is in connection to percentage as indicated in the above mentioned example, please reply. I shall love to hear from you.
Your online buddy

Tony, I don't think CXC tells you what percentage you make to get a grade 1,2,3,4 or else. They just tell you what grade you get and that's it. I have never heard of anyone finding out what percentage they got in a CXC subject. If you find out any information on that could you let me know as well?

I have heard that Cxc grades on a bell curve therefore it depends on the average grades of everyone who wrote and then it would be decided what percentage is assigned to which grade. Hope this helps.

what happens if you obtain little amount marks on the long paper, and you graded about 30/60 for the multiple choice and you pass your sba, is it possible that you can still obtain a grade 3 at least.

Hmmm... I am not sure. Since I don't know how much marks you made on the long paper and have absolutely no idea what grade you got on your SBA, I really can't say. If I said anything, I would be guessing.

What does your gut tell you? Do you think you passed?

incorrect grammar, should be - 'Does anyone "have" an idea','If anyone of my online buddies "have" information' (not "has"). and no i don't.

that's very true.i have exams next year and i'm so scared because of the way the teachers(english a and b)in particulary speaks.And others say it was hard.Every time the thought of not doing good comes to my mind i knock it out of my mind quickly and say...."I can do all things through christ who strenghtens me"
Thank you xoxo :)

If I fail my SBA, is there a chance I can pass the subject overall, like with a grade II or grade III?

Hello, it depends on how well you did on the other two exam papers.

How do they add up the marks for paper 1 paper 2 and your sba?? To find your grade

If I get about 60 something in the long paper and about 40 something in the m.c and 13/20 on my sba, what would my grade be?
