grade boundaries

Below you have all the grade boundaries for GCSE Edexcel history from 2024 to 2019. 

You can use the search bar for each table for fast results and to save you from having to scroll through all the different pages on the table. You will have also noticed a lot of different grade boundaries and this reflects all the different options (topics) students may have taken within the course. Simply identify the topic/option you have taken and use the table to identify the boundaries for each grade.

The grade boundaries for 2024 have yet to be released so as soon as this happens, we will be sure to include them too with an updated table. 

You can find out when your exams are on our GCSE timetable.

How much percent is a Grade 9 in GCSE History?

To work out the grade 9 boundary for GCSE history, you need to add the grade 9 thresholds for each exam paper option you have studied.

To do this, you need to identify which entry code is relevant for you from the grades boundary table below.

The first digit of the entry code is determined by the combination of paper 1 and paper 3, while the second is determined by the choice of paper 2.

For example, if you were to combine the following:

  • Medicine in Britain, c1250–present and the British sector of the Western Front, 1914–18: injuries, treatment and the trenches

Plus Weimar and Nazi Germany, 1918–39 (= first entry code digit – F)


  • Superpower relations and the Cold War, 1941–91 and Early Elizabethan England, 1558–88 (= second entry code digit – R),

The entry code would be FR

See the exam codes tables below for more information however to be safe, you should aim to achieve at least 85% as your average score across all 3 exam papers.

This is because we can see that the highest score required in any of the 3 papers is approximately 111 out of 132. This averages to approximately 84% meaning the grade boundary will likely be around this range (hence it's safer to aim for 85%).

The second digit is a letter determined by the choice of specific Paper 2 topics. It corresponds to the Paper 2 reference code for each combination of topics.
