    20 UMS is insane!!

    Brother:

    AS Biology (Edexcel), needed 1 for an A, went up 2.

    AS Chemistry (AQA), needed 5 for an A, went up 3.

    Chem was never very likely, so fairly happy. Needs to work harder for A2!!!

    So AQA have already remarked them all?
    We've had everything back we put in to AQA to be re-marked by 19 August. Still waiting for most of those submitted this week.

    Long ass exam
    40 marker unseen poetry or prose (you pick one)

    60 marker (Metaphysical poets 16th-17th century, Duffy 21st and Gatsby 20th)
    you are given a random statement e.g. "It is when readers are exposed to matters regarding sexuality in literature that they are most engaged and challenged - To what extent do you agree with this statement?"

    You then use 2-3 metaphysical poems, 2-3 Duffy and Gatsby whilst cross-referencing all of those in relation to the 4 AO's below.

    AO1 is SPAG - 10
    AO2 analysis of language, form and structure - 10
    AO3 comparison and use of critics e.g. Sir Geoffrey Hill's criticism of Duffy - 20
    AO4 modern and historical context awareness and influences - 20

    Okay gotcha, so hopefully my paper should be soon as I got mine in day after results...

    Do you guys think the exam boards will keep re-marking over the weekend? Seems fair to me so as to meet the deadline of 31st August!

    31st August is the deadline my firm university has given to me for me to tell them the result of my remark, andI think it's the UCAS deadline?

    I.e. They are only holding my place until then.

    I'm only AS, I got C2 remarked and the paper went from a B to an A, making my grade A overall.
    I am considering getting my S1 module remarked as I felt that it went so much better than the high c grade that I got, what are your opinions on that? My working out is a bit messy though

    Missed A* by 5 UMS
    175/200 total
    I think 69 and 106 breakdown

    Sent remark for U4 because for 30 marker my points weren't in mark scheme but more than valid and relevant to question.


    Also sent Edexcel English Literature for which the marking was absolutely baffling and borderline insane.
    Highest score was myself with 86/120 UMS in the whole year group... was getting A* all year.
    I'm in the same situation. I got 86/120 UMS in the edexcel literature exam when I was getting beyond the A* all year. Fuming.

    They are posted to the school so there has to be someone there to open the post and deal with them.
