IGCSE examinations are taken in all subjects and they are marked on a scale giving grades A* to G. A* grade shows outstanding level of performance. Although all grades above F represent a pass, students typically needs a minimum of 5 grade C`s to progress to higher level of education such as AS-Level or IB. A minimum of B grades would be expected for subjects chosen for advanced study.
