    I'm in the same position as you- I thought I was definitely on an A for politics. Ended up with 72UMS for Unit1 and 78UMS for Unit2. Im really surprised at how low I was in People and Politics as I thought the exam went really well and I find it pretty easy- had been getting A's in all my mocks. I'm going to get my script back and go over the paper with my teacher as I am so confused as to what happened.

    I thought it was too. I ended up getting a much lower mark in my retake than my original exam! Unit 2 was a bit better but not amazingly :/

    My unit2 was better too which I'm really confused about as I find governing the UK so confusing! What marks did you get?
