    Could someone help me out out here are these subjects worth renarking: (All AQA btw)

    Statistics 3 UMS off A Grade
    Biology (B1 B2 B3) 24 UMS off A* Grade
    Physics (P1 P2 P3) 19 UMS off A* Grade
    Geography B 3 UMS off A grade


    I am not sure if this has happened with anyone else but my Product Design Coursework was marked as an A* but has gone down to a low B. Is this in error? As it can't have gone down to a Low B as it was inputted into the system as an A*. Plus, my exam I done with Product Design is 2 UMS off an A grade. What shall I do?

    I'm 1 mark off an A in Science additional and 2 off an A in Science Core...gutted but overall still pleased with a B
    lol if its 1 mark get it remarked like me

    Idk how I got 45 / 80 marks in English language, that's a B by 1 mark in the exam (got A* in coursework) and the lowest i ever got in any mock was 56/80 and that was when I left the entire question 4 out (wrong nothing), which is 16 marks, and didnt od half of question 3, 8 marks.

    Here in the exam I finished everything in time, I messed up question 5 quite badly (16 marker) but my other answers were really good for what i wrote before

    I'm really confused about my overall I.C.T grade. The examiners (WJEC) must've been generous. I had an A* in my Year 10 coursework but a C in the Unit 1 written paper, yet I had an A overall? I really don't get how an A* and a C equivilate to an overall A? Obviously, I'm thrilled to have that A. I just don't feel like I deserved it because my exam was considerably lower than my coursework, if that makes any sense.

    Also, my Welsh examiners must've been coffee addicts as well as generous. There are four questions (including two crossover questions which are the same in both Higher and Foundation Tier). In the crossover writing question, I wrote 3 sentences about coffee (obviously in Welsh) and yet I had a B in the paper. How is my stupidness worth a B? All I can say is I'm thankful that I've had such generous grades.

    WJEC is designed to pass you despite the grades in the exams which is why many schools choose it

    If that's the case, I'm glad I live in Wales lol. I guess Wales have a kind of advantage as our schools are presumbaly going to choose WJEC. Yes, I am aware that schools in England also take WJEC courses, I'm just saying it's a common thing in wales lol.

    Well.. It wasn't bad. I was targeted 5+ A's but only got one. Looking at the UMS, 3 exams I was -5 or less UMS off the A grade.. I might remark but it would be like £200 for OCR
