How to compare grades using UK NARIC's International Grade Comparisons - an interactive webinar


International Grade Comparisons (IGC) is a UK NARIC database of 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. 

In this online session we will explore how IGC can be used to help with decision-making by determining what suitable levels of student performances might be, especially within international admissions. 

The webinar uses real-life case studies, provides tips on getting the best out of the database and shows how IGC can be used in tandem with other UK NARIC services. 

Target Audience

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. 


The key objectives of the webinar are to:

  • Explore the main features of International Grade Comparisons

  • Explain how international grade performances can be compared to UK standards

  • Provide a practical demonstration on how to get the best out of the database

  • Help understand what is meant by a ‘good grade’
