    Hi,

    I am completely astounded that my AQA Sociology paper has been moved up by 10 UMS! This is terrible and makes me question whether any other papers have been marked badly this year. Has this happened to anyone else with their remark results?

    Of what I have seen they have gone up a few marks. However those who lost marks or stayed the same won't be as dominant in saying it... so I guess.. Some will go up and some will go down. Some will be at the top of the scale and some will be at the bottom.

    Quite a lot of my AS Biology class last year got an extra 3 UMS added as one question was marked incorrectly. I unfortunately was not one of them but it was still quite alarming as that could mean the difference between a uni place and no place this year if that happens again!

    I did hear one story of a remark going up from an E to an A because the examiner missed out a page.

    Congrats on your remark result!

    Thank you very much. It means a lot when it goes up by a grade, especially as it opens up so many more doors having AAB instead of ABB when applying. I can't believe they can be so poor at marking that could downgrade someone by so much! It makes me so angry for all of the other people that were marked by this person.

    Your teacher should have them if you went via your school. I think they emailed the results back to her as she forwarded me the email. If you didn't go via a school or college maybe give the exam body a ring.

    I wasn't even sure whether to get it remarked, so glad I did! Hope your results were as you'd hoped too.

    there's so much in the country that needs to be improved. accurate marking of papers are just one of them.
