If it's internally marked then yes, there's nothing stopping a school from letting you see it, although a version has to be kept by the center for moderation. It depends on your school though - some might not let you see them.

Can't speak for biology, but for English you can see the marked coursework but shouldn't be shown the mark, because that is subject to moderation during the exam period (after students have left usually) and is open to change.

For English (I don't do biology) I have my coursework mark but not the actual annotated coursework, I think it depends on the school

Most of the time teachers mark it and give their scores indeed.

But from my knowledge, they usually have to send a sample to be moderated meaning they could go up and down potentially. Hopefully your teacher(s) fully understands the sort of marking scheme but otherwise take it slightly with a pinch of salt

Clearly depends on the teachers' willingness to ignore the official exam regulations.

It's the mark the school department moderated and it was made clear that the exam board can change it at any time, I don't see the problem?

It's a problem if the exam board decides to make it one. In practice, what it means is disappointment for students whose marks are moderated down by the board after being told they have got higher by staff they trust. And that happens often enough for it to be a practice we in my department choose to stick to the rules about, however experienced the staff involved are. Exam boards make some very strange and unpredictable decisions, last year's AQA GCSE being a case in point.
