Mistake with English cost me the C

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

    Last year, I retook English Language at College, exam board being AQA. I passed the Exam paper by 3 marks and got all good coursework. Someone made a mistake with my coursework which then resulted in me getting an E. It's been about 50 days since I received my results.

    I am curious and scared as to whether AQA can refuse to award me with the GCSE, I'm not sure what I'll do if I don't receive it since I should. Does anyone have any similar experience where their coursework wasn't submitted or something which cost them the grade? How did you handle it?

    You should contact the exam board and explain the situation, but given how long it's been I'm not sure what they will be able to do.
    Hope it gets sorted.

    What does that mean: 'someone made a mistake with my coursework'?
