Hey Student Room!
Basically, I was wondering if the rumors surrounding the evil Edexcel English GCSE markers are true? My teachers have told me that they are incredibly tight when distributing grade boundaries which even they have said is perhaps a little unfair due to the subjective nature of the exams. So, are they as stingy as one would have lead me to believe?
My coursework is A/A* standard but my teacher wants to drop my 6 poem essay mark as he believes the board will deduct the score, despite me believing it's off a high quality. I want to do English Lit further in my education, hence the importance of this particular GCSE to me!
Any help/past experiences welcome!
