    what theee ****?!
    This is why i dont believe in grades! Our future is marked by strangers who could be anyone, and could mark you up or down for any personal stupid reasons..down to luck for the most of time!
    send it off for a re-mark, in fact go further, thats not on, not on AT ALL.
    Yeah, that's what people who can't do exams normally say.
    Really, what would you rather have? People who know you, so can't be impartial?

    Anyway, OP, I'm gonna go with what everyone else has said and say try and get a remark, or discuss with your teacher to see if they think you have grounds for a complaint.

    The grade system isn't perfect but how else are universities going to decide which applicants are best suited to study a course? Let's face it, a personal statement and interview alone isn't enough to distinguish between thousands of applicants. Most universities don't even use interviews.

    I also object to the idea that exam results are purely based on luck. Students might get the odd harsh mark (and I sympathise with you OP), but in general results are fair tbh.

    Yep I posted on the KCL thread I got rejected the reason being "you have not achieved or are not predicted to get the grades" YES I was:rolleyes:
    awful reason but they do have 4k applicant for just 220 places..
    that's stupid and they should give some margin for applicants who perform better than predicted..
    anyways....good luck with the rest and hope you get into City.. (yn)

    So as I got to the bottom of each question, the examiner had wrote 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 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

    Provided he marked it correctly why does a few snotty comments matter. Also he criticises your handwriting you want to set of a firework in his face hardly seems resonable.

    I don't trust examiners either. Mainly because my physics teacher is a senior examiner and she constantly gets things wrong, she doesn't understand the Boltzmann factor at all and can not take any kind of response pointing out what she said doesn't make sense. If she doesn't understand the course how can she possibly mark papers? I think it may be something similar in your case, an examiner who doesn't know the course well and so just marks on the obvious things like sentence construction

    This is a post on a forum not an exam you fool
    There is nothing wrong with using perfect grammar in everyday speech and writing, and in fact there is everything wrong with not doing it.

    No I mean I can understand that he wrote mean comments, but I don't know why he would write any comments at all, even if they were nice? How is opinion involved in a business exam?

    Lol this made me laugh. You have totally skipped the word "harsh" in my orginal post. He has not market it correctly at all, he has just give me one tick for every paragraph of writing and added up the ticks, idiotic man. And also, how dare he speak about my handwriting in such a way, it wasn't that bad, and most candidate's quality of handwriting descends nearing the end of the paper. But ye...I would never do such a thing...its too soft. Physical strangle would fit the bill.

    Exactly! Its like he was trying to justify his harsh marking. I think he knew I would get the script back, but a better choice of word's would have been appropriate.
