    I had exactly the same thing happen to me, I got 64/90 and yet I too knew practically 90% of the paper was right. My friend also didnt do as well as he expected to do, he revised a lot because he needed to do well on it and after the exam knew he had done quite well. However it turned out he got 55/90 which was the average result of his AS grades! Something dodgy is going on here I'm sure, I dont know what to do, whether to get the paper re-marked or to get it back to look through. Trouble is, I know that all this might seem a bit big headed to anyone else but afterall who is some idiot at the exam board got to do with deciding our future??

    Worst of all I spent the most time (75% of revision time) revising for that exam

    and my other exams, which I felt less confidence of reaching a high mark actually did turn out high, Physics (Force/Field/Energy = 75/90).

    Im very upset now.......

    I was happy with my CR&S mark. I got 79/90 and felt that this was a mark I am happy with! I don't think there was anything dodgy going on when they marked my paper.
