IBCC Conversion Help
Hi, I know there are a lot of threads about IBCC conversion but I can't seem to find the answer to my question.
I've had a look on their website and it says, for instance, at A level an A would be considered 85, a B 75, a C 65 etc.
My question is how can I get my equivalence by that? So if someone got BCC would their equivalence be 205? Or if someone got DDC would it be 175?
If so, how do you get the whole "60%" thing?
I apologize if any of my questions have been answered before, I did try to have a look around.
Thanks in advance.May 6th, 2014, 08:58 PM #2
Detailed Explaination On How To Convert Scores To IBCC Equivalence Scores !
I will show you my results of my IGCSE and convert it now so you get the idea how to convert it.
I got the following in IGCSE. 1 A , 5B's and 1 C ( Not good though)
(According to IBCC, A* = 90, A = 85, B=75 and C=65)
!! Okay so since the matric in Pakistan is out of 900, we would convert all the scores to 900. and the A level to 200. !!
I gave total 7 subjects so my raw marks will be 700.
( The total raw marks will be the number of subjects you take multiplied by 100, For example if a person took 5 subjects 5*100 = 500 will be the raw marks, likewise if 8 subjects were taken then 8*100 = 800 will be the raw marks. In my case 7 subjects so i will use 700 as the raw marks.(
Lets convert now. 1A , 5B's and 1C will be = 85+(75*5)+65 = 525.
So my score is 525/700.
To convert this to percentage we simply multiply the fraction by 100. So, (525/700)*100 = 75%
So here my percentage is 75%. ( Note IBCC deducts 2% marks so the actual percentage will drop to 73.5%)
IBCC converts this to 900. To do that multiply the fraction by 900 to get scores according to 900.
This is, (525/700)*900 which is equal to = 675/900
(The percentage remains same, 675/900 * 100 = 75 %) ( Note IBCC deducts 2% marks so the actual percentage will drop to 73.5%)
Now comes the A level marks.
For example the A level grades were 3 A* ( A* = 90 )
So the raw mark will be of 300.
Lets calculate the marks and percentage.
90+90+90 = 270
So our marks are 270/300. The percentage will be 270/300 * 100 = 90% ( Note IBCC deducts 2% marks so the actual percentage will drop to 88.2%)
Now the IBCC raw mark used is 200 in A levels , but our marks are in 300. SO we need to convert our marks to 200.
Let's do that:- (270/300)*200 = 180
So our marks out of 200 will be = 180/200
(The percentage remains same, 180/200 * 100 = 90%) ( Note IBCC deducts 2% marks so the actual percentage will drop to 88.2%)
These were the individual score calculations for each (Matric (IGCSE/O'LEVELS) and Intermediate (A'LEVELS) )
Now from these two we can calculate the IBCC Equivalence scores (That is IGCSE/O levels AND A levels COMBINED)
We just add up the scores now.
Our IGCSE/O'LEVEL scores were = 675/900
Our A'LEVEL scores were = 180/200
So therefore:- (675/900) + (180/200) = 855/1100 ( Percentage = 855/1100 * 100 = 77.7 % = 78%)
( Note IBCC deducts 2% so from each percentage will be 4% deduction. so the actual percentage will drop to 74.88% )
This score will be the total score in the Equivalence certificate. 855/1100
I hope this was a really big help for people in this forum searching for proper answers.
I request admins to sticky my post so in future people do not repeat the same question.
