I had A* in speaking (postal moderation), A* listening and A* reading but only D for writing which was a controlled assessment that the teacher had given A* for. I am not the only one in my school that this has happened to. Whilst an A is still good, I really need an A* for what I want to do in future, is there anything I can do to get it remarked?

Yes, you can request a remark. You'll have to go through your school, so speak to your subject teacher.

You can't request a remark for controlled assessments that were first marked by a teacher and then had a sample sent off to be moderated. :no: Either the whole centres has to be remarked in this case or no one's is.

OP, why do you really need an A*?

I had exactly the same problem on OCR GCSE French writing, my teacher said it was an A* but it got moved down to a C, making me my target grade! I've contacted her, but she has yet to reply. It's happened to other people in my school too and now I know it's happened to other schools I'm thinking it might be something to do with the exam board?

Sorry, my bad! I haven't done a controlled assessment for 3 years.

Exact same thing has happened to me and a few others according to my teacher. What I was told to be A* writing is down to a B, leaving me with an A overall. I've got A*s in almost every French exam since Year 7 so for this to happen when it matters is a bit gutting.

As did other people, I told my teacher and she's looking into it, probably will sort a remark when I get back to school next week.

The same for me. Full UMS in both papers, then a C in writing, bringing down to an A. My school are also trying to appeal and get it remarked.

Wow, that's great! I came out with A*s in speaking and reading, then Bs in listening (was expecting this, don't know why but I found the exam 100x harder than any past paper) and writing; definitely unexpected - I was sure (as was my teacher) that my writing was far superior to my speaking...

Hope you get your remark and the grade you definitely deserve!

Wow well done to you too!
My controlled assesment was marked at an A by my teacher so fingers crossed
Thank you, we shall see anyway
