    The history results from Edexcel have been completely screwed up at both of the campuses at our college. No-one got an A, one person got a B, everyone else got less than a C (the majority being Ds, Es and Us).

    I personally got a U. This seems bizarre as, without wishing to sound like a git, Ive never managed to get a U EVER in an exam, mock, coursework, test, homework, etc, etc. I got all A's in my AS's and I got full marks in both my history courseworks, so to get a U seems strange to say the least. Everyone who is predicted an A got a U or an E (including a couple who've got Oxbridge offers), and one guy who is predicted a D got the highest mark in the class (a B). Im still on an average of 77% across all modules though, so Im not too upset.

    Edexcel have f*cked up like this too often (remember the marked down english papers 2 years ago, or the unanswerable pure maths question?!?). This is a very pressured and sensitive time for many students and Edexcel appear not to give a stuff. Thats why our Students Union is planning to boycott them.

    Has this happened to anyone else?? Perhaps all 100+ history students at both our campuses suddenly became stupider!!

    We had the same problem last summer - in a class where everyone was predicted As (there were a couple of Bs) very few people got an A - on one paper, the Votes for Women source paper everyone did bad, with most people gets marks from Cs-Us!

    My English teacher in 2003 told me that Edex-hell is a weird organisation and that they have got admitted some Asians admitted newly . They accumulate so much wealth from around the world but even then their
    committment and sense-of-duty is lax , continuously vexing the serious students . I heard a student didn't even appear for the Biology examination but got an A in it , woah !
