    Not surprised, my science results weren't as expected. Never mind, did fine overall (with AQA and OCR exam boards).

    People, it's for RS only - so stop complaining about other subjects.

    (And ironically, I did my RS with Edexcel!)

    As someone said before ( i think) there is no point in complaining in what you got in other grades other than Re as they only marked RE papers ( we think!!!)

    I think this was in the news a few days back, so I am surprised that the BBC is reporting on it again.

    Yeh. Well it's stupid, but what can we do about it? I don't think my school did RS with Edexcel and I personally didn't take it as a subject anyway. I hope anyone who did do RS with Edexcel, got the grade they deserve! On a more general note - have people found they've done better with certain boards? Maybe all A*s with one, then more As and Bs with another, or something similar? From what i've seen so far, it has been quite the spread - although a lot of people at my school are appealing Edexcel English Language.

    Im happy. Both my EdExcel exams gave me A* (one of which was the RS one) and most people i know did well in the EdExcel exams so theres no need complaining for us. If i did bad with EdExcel (especially RS) i think you have a right to complain though as theyve been marked by untrained people

    Thanks! But I am actually sending my papers off for a re-mark. Because I thought they were my best papers, and I got an A (instead of predicted A*). I know I sound so big headed there, but I think that anyone who didn't get what they were expecting deserves a re-mark after this Edexcel marking shambles! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    Get it re-marked. It was probably marked by some Edexcel secretary who knows jack-**** about RS!
