geography urgent help needed!

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    so I took a gcse geography course of only one year as I got recommended. We did all the normal things including c/a and both physical/human topics although we did less topics overall than a 'normal' two-year course student would have done. I was very disappointed when my teacher announced the c/a grades as he obviously marked them himself before submitting to the examiner. I was one mark away from an A so my first question is do you think there is still a chance that the examiner will overlook the c/a and give me an extra mark? or will what my teacher predicted be my final c/a grade? secondly I would like to know if there is still any chance of me getting an A star overall? I know it would require a lot of effort but looking in the best case scenario if I get A stars for both physical and human tests coming up in the next weeks could my overall grade be an A star? or is it impossible for me to get above an A? If you have any personal experience stories or professional advice I would really appreciate

    Hi mate,

    No worries. If you're one mark from the boundary, examiners frequently "hunt" for an extra mark where they can, and you always have the option to request a remark in which they go through it thoroughly and frequently find an extra mark or two.

    Yes there is a chance of an A* but it is unlikely if you're a mark away from an A. Good luck!
