    0 change in UMS in both Economics U3+ U4 and English Lit...
    New corrupt *****y ****ing system making it very very hard to get a change in marks because they merely just review the marking and as long as a "clear error" in original marking is not evident, marks don't change, so in order for the marks to change you need to get ****ed over by a big enough margin the first time round.

    Aghh that's so unfair but a gap year can be a great thing, I wish I was still taking one! Thank you😊

    I got AAA, missed out on A* A* A by a few UMS

    Got offer from KCL for history w/ econ
    OR
    I can take a gap year and apply for Law LLB at QMUL...

    Gap year would mean I wouldn't need to borrow the 27K tuition fee and subsequently not having to pay those monthly interest repayments which can range from £100 to £250 plus the X% of income.

    Vying towards option 2, but I'll have a think about it.

    Really disappointed with the new system where remarks have been scrapped and only reviews now exist, which for essay based subjects are appallingly useless.

    Would you not think about getting a copy of the script and getting an English teacher to double check it? My English lit also came back still a B but I am waiting for the script and if my teachers believe it's worth an A (for an overall A*) then I'll look into appealing it.
    I've already got into my firm choice so I dunno I think I'll just leave it :/ I could always retake the exam next year to get the A overall

    Ah I'm spec A! Got in to my insurance but my place at my firm hangs on this remark! I'm praying for a miracle though as I need 10 marks! But my units in English were A* A A D so I'm hoping they forgot to mark a question because it doesn't seem right!
    OMG exactly the same with me after getting A*/A/B all year, but got my script back and 2 people had marked it? Like one person has checked what the first person had done, so I'm just going to leave it now.
    In fairness I got 3 hrs of sleep before that exam (learnt my lesson now lol)
