    I received my grades today for my exams, I was really proud of my results I achieved- except for geography.
    I am predicted an a*, and geography being one of my strongest subjects, I was confident I could get that, however I got a B (47 UMS).
    It wasn't just me, others people in my school were predicted a/a*'s got D,C' and low B's. People who were predicted D/C'S and don't really care about education even got B/A's!
    I have heard of inconsistency in marking for DME'S, is it possible to get my paper called back and remarked?
    Also, if my grade doesn't change what would I need in the themes paper for an a* in geography (I got 23/24 and 35/36 in my c/w)

    I hope I don't sound arrogant; thank you.


    I also took the Exam on 21st January and am to predicted an A* took the exam and got the same as you 47, which I understand is 1 ums Mark off an A.

    In my school too people got similar grades to what you mentioned, A* students coming out with C's ETC.

    I have already looked into getting paper back/remarked but I doubt schools will let it. They have to agree, the best option is probably the resit on June 4th on Natural Hazards.

    But you're luckier than me I got 18/24 in C/W and 32/36 in the other.

Should MenACWY vaccination be compulsory at uni?
