    I wouldn't take it too literally, but I'd take it on board. The examiners have, and will, mark endless scripts, so they know what they're doing. They are never biased, they are always impartial. He/ She obviously wrote/ told you that for a reason. Take the advice, don't whine about it and expect some sympathy from us. Judging from your username you obviously need it!

    Er, can you send the paper for a remark once you've looked at the marking?

    You couldn't when I did my A-levels...

    you can order a photocopy for about £12 and that way you can ask for a remark. if you order your original script for a bit less, you cant get it remarked.

    Yep, my English Language teacher was one and taught part-time. And, from my two years of being her student, I can honestly say that she wasn't a robot. But, you never know these days.

    N.B. It's their job to be impartial when marking, which is why teachers don't mark their own students' scripts...

    Of course you can?! Why else do you think people would request their paper back, they don't send you the actual paper, just a photocopy

    Hi all, got my business unit 3 photocopy back today and I am so mad. I must have had the most harsh examiner in the history of marking. I got a D btw. Anyway as I was reading through what I wrote, I noticed some silly mistakes, but nonethelss worthy of credit. So as I got to the bottom of each question, the examiner had written really rude comments.

    Just to name a few, "very narrow minded", "terrible handwriting", "restricted view on life", "illiterate" :eek: I mean what the hell!!!!!!!!!

    I got 90% at AS and a D in unit 3. Anyway I have sent for a remark. I am so shocked at how ruthless the examiner was, and I wish he was right in front of me now so I could set off a fire work in his face!!!...Im usually a nice person

    Hang on...is there a particular reason for the negs? I dont mind them...but seriously?

    Well at the time we were told requesting to see our papers would mean no possibility of remark. Pointless though it seemed on that basis, I didn't question it any further at the time. I've never had a remark, you see.
