**Before reading NOTE:- If you are studying in Pakistan and doing O'Levels you need to have 8 subjects must and out of which Pakistan studies, Islamic studies and Urdu subjects are a must.**

(If you are doing IGCSE/O'levels Abroad (Outside pakistan) then you only need

__to take Pakistan studies, Islamic studies and Urdu)__*5 subjects and no need***Okay after a long time i figured out how to convert the grades.**

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.I hope this was a really big help for people in this forum searching for proper answers.
