    Having looked at some of the threads it has emerged that people that did OCR english lit did badly on the drama paper. The whole of our year group bar a few people got bad marks compared to the rest of the english exams (b/c/ds instead of a/a*s) and our school wants them all to be remarked.
    Post here if you have had a similar experience because i can't believe it was just our school, then a coincidence that some people on this forum had thier grades pulled down by this paper!

    Exactly the same happened to me. Dram post-1914, I did Death of a Salesman and got 26/40, which was by far my worst mark. I think if I had done better in that paper I would have got an A instead of a B. Although, I'm not sure and it might actually still have been a B, but it would have been a higher B and in practice exams I always did far better in the Drama questions than the Poetry and Prose, but I got 73/100 in the Poetry and Prose.

    I did better in the Death of a Salesman (post-1914) paper than the Poetry and Prose one *shrugs*.

    Something happened with our drama paper to! :eek: We did 'Whose Life is it Anway' and the question did not fit the passage to say the least. It was a question about suspense, and there was no suspense in the passage what so ever, it was drama! I got a B in that paper when i got an A in the mock, and our teacher wasn't happy with the question either! So, i think it was down-graded, and my coursework mark was an A* from my teacher, and it was marked down to an A! Overall, i got an A, which i'm very happy about, but i was 3 marks off an A* :mad: :eek:! And i'm thinking what if my coursework stayed the same - i could of got an A*! So, i'm thinking of having it remarked, aswell as the drama paper, and hopefully get an A*! I don't know yet...i'll talk to my teacher in September!
