    Alright I know i've left this late but im here looking for some help.
    So the issue is the gcse subject grade is made up of 2 courseworks and 1 exam. Each coursework is 30% and the exam is 40%. My first coursework is an A and I'm predicted B overall. When it came to handing in my second coursework I was absent from school on the day of handing in and the day before and it was a 2 week half end of term (around march to april). After the half term that teacher asked for the coursework and TBH i totally forgot about it so i said I don't have it today. The teacher told me to give it next lesson. Bare in mind there was still 3 other people that needed to give theirs in. On the next lesson when one of the other people was handing in their coursework the teacher asked me if i had mine i said it needs to be printed out then the teacher said they dont want it. The next lesson after that the teacher asked me again if i had it and i responded with 'i thought you didn't want it' teacher said well you should still have it. There was 2 people left that needed to hand in their courseworks me and 1 other person that was on holiday he said to me lets both of us hand it in together (so its not awkward etc) The teacher accepted both the courseworks however 2 days later when i saw the teacher they gave it back and said im not marking it and gave no reason.
    The last week of april i went to the examiners office and explained the situation and she replied with "What do you want me to do?" "I can't mark it for you" (i never asked her to mark it for me i asked for that teacher to be reported) "I'm sorry i cannot do anything" (all of it said it a rude tone and cut me off 2 time then proceeded to shut the door)
    So fast forward to now...
    40% = A
    40% = U
    30% = probably D/C (its a hard exam)
    all i need is this gcse or i will have to do a level 2 btec (i havent even applied to one)
    On all the research ive done on reporting/appealing it says i HAVE to go and ask the exam officer and my previous school. And im not going back to speak to the exams officer because IMO she is a true *****.
    So is there any other options? sorry for posting a long paragraph but i guess its all relevent?
