    Really disappointed with that. Although English was my weakest subject, I was really pleased with how that paper went..
    Not bothering with a remark though, as I literally only scraped that C by one mark anyway :/

    If you are not sure you will go up in marks with a remark then you could get a photocopy of your script and ask a teacher to mark it. It's a lot cheaper and if it turns out you were actually given too many marks you won't lose any.

    Is that just at your college because I was told by the head of 6th form I have to wait until school starts again before I can get a copy?

    I meant I have to wait until school starts again before I can request a copy. Do you know if that sign up deadline is just your college or is it nationwide?

    I bet you someone forgot to enter another 7 in to make it 77/100 :p:

    I've got a problem with PHB6 , I was expecting to get at least 72/90 i.e an A despite having problems getting equpiment to work in a practical exam , and I've got 50/90 which is worth a D grade.Not happy as it's stopping me meeting my Warwick offer (need 18 more points for the A they need).I've asked for a photocopy of the paper and I'm thinking of putting in for a priority remark as well because I don't think anyone (including someone who got AAAA) did better than a C in that unit.

    I thought the exam went really well we did loads of exam practise for this unit in class and I received straight A's always so I was absolutely appalled to see my D especially as I received A's for unit 2 and 3 which made my overall grade B. I am defiantly getting a remark as are loads of people in my class (about 75%). I was expecting an B at least !
