There appears to be some scapegoatism [or as Jade BB3 would say, escape goatism] - no
acknowledgement that it's maybe the government's fault for unfeasible demands? And also AQA in
particular as well as OCR are to blame for some similar messups.
On the other hand, it seems that only Edexcel take 6 months to re-mark papers [there's numerous
examples of this]. And their customer service is terrible. But so is AQAs in my experience.
