    Edexcel lost half the Economics papers for people doing their January module (everyone who asked for extra paper). They were awful about it, everyone got marked as getting 0UMS and didn't even tell the school before results day when like 20 people had 0UMS. Still haven't sorted the problem :/.
    This is actually really scary. I do Scottish Qualifications and last year a girl in my year's English paper was lost and so they gave her a No Award (or a Fail). She went in to school to see our English teacher and he got in touch with the SQA exam board and they admitted that they had lost the paper and then later awarded her with an A.

    That is actually disgusting. The oafs at Edexcel should give everyone their predicted grades.

    They get paid by piece rate, or paid per paper so they have no incentive to do a good job, it's sad really.

    Hopefully this has happened to me. I've missed out on my AAA offer today by getting AAB. the B was in edexcel government and politics, where i got 313/400. i got 80, 94, 83 in my first 3 modules , and in the one i've just got the results for, which i tried really hard for as i was in vain aiming for 97 to get an A*, only so i wouldn't be lazy on the knowledge i only needed 63. Anyway the exam went well, i thought it went better than the previous modules as i'd prepared for it so much, and i've found out today to my great surprise that i got 56ums. So it's been sent off for a priority remark, so i hope it goes up atleast 7 ums or bye bye Bristol (they won't accept me with AAB they said today)

    It makes you wonder if that happens with ALL your results!

    What's worse is colleges that don't give you marks on your results - so how the hell do you know whther you should get a remark!?

    ****ing Edexcel! I got my Biology results today, an E overall! My little piece of paper says I got a D for the coursework, when I know for a fact I got an A! My coursework wasn't even moderated! How has the grade gone down so much? I can only pray that they ****ed up the marking of the exams too, because I was getting As in the mock exams. Really disappointed.

    I got my AS results today. Nearly all of the OCR english lit students in my year were down as getting a D in their exam?! I want to do english literature at uni, I got 100% in my coursework and 98.3% in my mock exam - there is NO WAY I got a D in that exam! The teachers are sending the whole lot back to be remarked, but it seems so wrong that something like this could happen...

    I got my Edexcel-marked Geography AS result back today, and ended up getting 100% To be frank, it's most likely a mistake. But I'd rather they not remark that one, tyvm...

    I got a C in History AS today >< Might get it remarked now, I think it was A worthy, or a B at least.
