    What grade was 37 UMS? (sorry I get really confused haha) An A is still really good though! So Unit 3's the coursework...you don't happen to know what unit was poetry and what one was the prose?

    Indeed I do! Unit 1 is the prose, Unit 2 in the poetry and U3 is the coursework. 37 UMS is 28 raw I believe Can't believe it went down 9 marks. Going to ask my exam officer what he thinks - definitely a mistake.

    got an A* in a paper I didn't finish. wut :eek:

    Aw that's rough Have you spoken to your English teacher/department? They will probably have the reason why you got marked down from the exam board. And if everyone got majorly marked down, they might appeal. Although your exam officer is probably a good place to go.
