The thresholds (minimum marks) for Grades C and D are normally set by dividing the mark range between
the B and the E thresholds into three. For example, if the difference between the B and the E threshold is
24 marks, the C threshold is set 8 marks below the B threshold and the D threshold is set another 8 marks
down. If dividing the interval by three results in a fraction of a mark, then the threshold is normally rounded
down. Grade A* does not exist at the level of an individual component.

The thresholds for the syllabus are determined first by adding together the thresholds for the components
taken by the candidate. A reduction may be made at the higher grades depending on the correlation of the
papers. If the maximum raw marks for the components are not in the weighting/relationship specified in the
syllabus, a weighting is applied to arrive at the overall thresholds. The A* threshold is calculated using the
difference 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 the
paper in order to neutralise any differences in the difficulty of the different versions and so make sure that all
candidates face an equal demand.

The maximum total mark for this syllabus is 260 for A Level and 130 for AS Level.
