    I got my Economics results yesterday and i got C D U in the exams. I averaged only 50%. This is very strange because in my As's i got A A A in th exams and averaged 94%. This year i was predicted an A and consistently got As in mock papers. What makes this even stranger is that this has happened to 3 of my class mates as well. Has anyone else had exam results seriously below expectations? and does anyone know what could of caused this?

    I did for a different subject. I retook it and got 90% something percent from 30% something. Like you i was expected an A. After that i had heard from my girl that a similar situation happened with some of her friends.

    If the board is Edexcel then anything can happen.

    Last year for maths I got AAB this year I got CUU. So yeah just a bit of a mess up. I still got into uni though, but just wished my grades were as good as last year.

    Last year physics i got 100% UMS, but this year i got CCD. I dont want to sound cocky or anything, but there is no way i got that. Physics has always been my strongest subject. I was 10 marks off getting a B and completely screwing up my offers.

    I got 237/300 for English Lit... I want to give it up but it would be great to retire on an A! I got 90/90 in one unit and a B and C in two others.... From experience is there any chance of it going up if remarked or should I just leave it/retake the C unit?

    Ah it seems like edexHELL lives up to it's reputation then.:p: This happens to alot of people and there really isn't a straightforward answer to it. Could be a very strict examiner who is just being silly but I guess that's what remarks are for but then hardly any papers get marked up by a very generous amount.

    With Edexcel, I'm sorry to say, what mark you get depends on how much sex the examiner got the night before. Its a lottery. I hate it. Thank god I only did one subject with them.

    yer edexcel is a biatch, but also remember that the high As you recieve on some papers might be as erratic as the low marks you get - take the good with the bad i gues.

    I got 26/90 UMS for an English AS Paper last year. Thats not just any normal U grade. That is a 'this student cannot write english sentences' U grade. I retook it this year and went up 60 UMS.

    that's rough dude. You taking any action - remarking modules? Can't be many people who get 300/300 in AS and then miss a B overall. Hope everything works out.
    I got an A, i was 10 marks off getting a B at the other end .

    So i dont actually have a problem, but its just annoying. I dont think theres any point in taking any action since i got an A.

    This just caught my eye. I'd got good As all year in Economics and my AS results were D-A-C (a very low C and a low D) from AQA. C overall. That's absolutely balls, I did worse in those two papers than in two of my Physics papers, and I flunked that all year (I literally just couldn't get it, and how I ever did better in that than my best subject...). Ugh.
