    English Literature with Edexcel here.
    The marking by the seems of it has been very questionable.
    Yeh English papers in general always seem to have very odd marking. I was getting A's throughout the year yet I end up with a C in the exam ... Very shocked, especially given I did better in the AS retake which I thought I'd flopped and didn't do much work for :/

    Got my remark back for English lit edexcel. It don't go up at all, all I needed was 2 UMS

    Stupid regulations
    Regardless of the outcome, I just hope mine comes quickly as that! This uncertainty sucks! Have a feeling Aqa will take their time though

    I also sent English Literature, most likely be appealing cos like you said new system means marks won't change at all.

    I got 86/120 ums in exam when I was getting 85-90/100 raw in class which is 120/120 ums all year.

    UCL. I achieved 100ums in both C3 and C4, also Distinction in AEA maths, but they refused to take me because of 1mark off to an A in music. Sigh. Good luck to you too.

    I was getting straight A/A*'s all throughout the year for law and when i opened my results im sure you can believe me when i say i was shocked to see an E!!!! im sending both papers back for remark as im praying there was a mistake or just a really harsh marker - it doesnt really bother me that it was an E itself but the fact that i felt decently confident when i came out of the hall and thought i could even scrape an A, maybe a B - never in my wildest dream and E. Im with IAL which is under pearson, edexcel! it's so scary now reading all this as clearly remarking is getting stricter and stricter!
