    Hello guys,

    I sat the GCSE AQA exams this year, and I found them incredibly easy - I even made unofficial markschemes, and compared my marks to the unofficial and realised I had maximum got A's. I was an A* student all year round, I even did an AS prepatory test right after my tests and came out with an AS B. However, my results are telling me I lost over 30 marks on every paper for my sciences. I was confident, had done adequate revision and I found the papers really easy. How did this happen? Besides a remark, which is costly for me, is there any way to resolve this? This cannot be right? I have done really hard papers and I havent lost less than 20 marks! Please guys, I am so depressed - I cannot do the subjects I want to do at A-Level, and despite my other A*'s Im going to college now! SOMEONE please help me!!!!
