    What happened with them in the past? I've always thought OCR are the best of a bad bunch when it comes to marking.
    I've onlt ever had bad experiences with marking and OCR. GCSE apparently no one in our year got above a 'c' grade.... the all got sent for remark and OCR had to do for free as people's grades went up 2/3 grades. :confused: Not quite sure how they can make that big of a mistake! :rolleyes:

    I hope you're right but I suspect they've changed their policy this year and forgotten to update the website. Either way, I'll be staying up for the OCR results as well. Edexcel would be VERY careful about who has access to their twitter account this close to results day.
    Is the Twitter account verified with the blue tick? If not it can't be trusted at all

    They marked one of my papers wrong by 11 marks :mad:
    They gave me like 9/25 for an essay, which when remarked got changed to 20/25. It's like they forgot to mark a quarter of my paper..!

    It couldn't be a typo because they said it twice. It could, however, be misinformation, but I doubt that. I don't have twitter either.
    I've tweeted them back to confirm, but they haven't replied to anyone for 3 hours so I'm not holding my breath.

    Exactly the same with me. I got my History AS remarked and it went up by 11 UMS. I don't trust OCR very much at all.

    No, but there are almost 3,000 tweets on the account and they're all really boring, it's definitely a real account. It's really difficult to get verified on twitter, even as a company.

    I'd relish at the opportunity of doing it in front of the TV but I can certainly see why A2 students and many others wouldn't.
    I've kindly denied the offer. To be honest, if I did it I don't think I would ever open the envelope... My hands would be shaking way too much. I wasn't so nervous for AS, mostly because there wasnt as much riding on it but also partly because I was on holiday last results day.

    Are you picking up AS results or A2?

    Twice? They've only said it once on their twitter.

    Wow! I've heard of marking that bad before but I always thought AQA were the main culprits. Really hope that doesn't happen with my English, it'd be ridiculously stressful.

    Fair enough honestly I'd struggle opening the envelope as well xd. This is why I'd do it this time round but probably not next time round (even though I'm gonna be asked next time round I just know it xD)

    I'm picking up my AS levels

    the qn about the end of the reign was nice, but the synoptic one i wrote literally everything so dont know if ill get the marks for like lack of explanation etc. How about you???
    I also liked the question about the end! I thought that was a great question, because it was the end of the module, I had revisited it the night before to refresh I thought it wasn't too bad overall, I tried to really plan my time for each paragraph well so that I didn't go into too much detail, so I'm just hoping that on the synoptic question that I got enough in! Good luck for your results, what other subjects do you take?

    Wouldn't trust their Twitter at all. I rang up asking about the online service, the guy had no idea what I was talking about and clearly knew nothing himself. Waste of my time and money
