Using the International Grades Comparisons tool to assess student suitability


International Grade Comparisons (IGC) is an Ecctis advanced research tool featuring over 130 countries. It allows users to compare examination grades in key qualifications from across the world to UK standards. This contextualises student performances, gives clarity to levels of achievement and informs thresholds that are based on examination grades.

We will explore how IGC can be used to help with decision-making by showing how suitable student performances can be made, especially within international admissions, by using this advanced tool.

The webinar uses real-life case studies, provides tips on how to get the best out of the advanced tool and shows how IGC can be used in tandem with other Ecctis services.


The key objectives of the webinar are to:

  • Explore the main features of International Grade Comparisons
  • Explain how thresholds for appropriate international grade performances can be identified
  • Provide a practical demonstration 
  • Discuss what a ‘good grade’ means

This event will help:

This is recommended for staff in universities and colleges involved in the recruitment and admission of international students. This session is targeted both at members who already use IGC and to those who would be interested in subscribing to it.
