    I really think they have. I got C for chem and bio(AS), even though I got A in the mocks and predictions. Right now I am really upset and depressed.

    Also in eco & bus I got 88/90 in unit 1, how the f*uck?!!? I'm not that good at eco & bus- I even got a C in that unit for my mock!!!

    Something must be wrong, any more people agree???
    My dreams are ruined!!!

    Also think of all the 1 million papers they have marked, is it not possible that a page was missed out in the scanning procedure?

    One of my brother's A levels went up *alot*

    He got an apology I think, they missed out a double page spread... :rolleyes:

    Always worth a remark if you are near to the next grade in my opinion...

    I'm sure I've lost at least 6 marks on Paper 1 of Edex Eco, but I came out with a perfect grade 90/90? What's that, man? While my S1 paper (also Edex) was expected to be almost perfect came out with 79/100. It's not really a problem 'cause I've got an A in Maths. But 79/100... ? I'm considering about having it remarked. Should I have a try?

    We all know these may sound like excuses but yes I think Edexcel has messy system.
    As individual module grades i got a B in chem 1, which i was sure to score 100% . i got a B in chem 3. that sounds ok.. and a U in chem 2?? which i was expectin 100% too.
    Does this make sense? A student hu can get 2Bs in Chem 1 and 3... will get a str8 U in chem 2?

    Argggh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
