I don't understand the mark scheme , my teacher gave me a D for Islam 1 , A for Islam 2 , A* for Sikhism 1 and an A/B for Sikhism 2. I am a Sikh , I used quotations and explained them but my overall grade was a normal B. This made no sense

Being Sikh doesn't guarantee you an A* in a Sikhism exam any more than being English guarantees you an A* in an English language exam. If you don't know and understand all of the content as defined by the specification, you're not going to get the top grade. Furthermore, exam technique is absolutely critical. Examiners (or your teachers) are marking against a list of criteria. If you don't tick the boxes, no matter how amazing your essay or exam is, they can't give you the top marks. At GCSE at least, you've got to jump through the hoops they set for you, however ridiculous they may seem.

If you don't understand the mark scheme, ask your teacher to go through it with you.

So you got a D a B(a/b means b) a A* and a A. Got a B overall, makes sense to me.

Revise that topic you got a D on is my advice.
