How did everyone find OCR's marking this year?

One of my chemistry modules (Salters F332 Natural Resources) I dropped 13 UMS, so 82/100 raw marks, despite being very sure I had very near full raw marks as I had done in all past papers (with very strict marking by my teacher). In the other I achieved full UMS. Fortunately, it didn't cost me a grade, but I'm considering a remark anyway to boost my UMS for Cambridge application, since I heard OCR's marking has been shady this year.

Has anyone else had unexpected results from OCR, particularly in Chemistry or other science where marking should be non-subjective?

Yep, I got 91/100 in c1, 87/100 in S1 and then 58/100 in C2 despite calculating I got 58 raw karks which would be 80+ ums.

I got 97+ UMS in C1,C2,C3,C4 and M1, but 89 in S1, which doesn't seem right after checking against an unofficial mark scheme but it doesn't affect my grade so i'm not too bothered but I would like to see my paper or get a remark just to see. Mine were OCR MEI though if that makes any difference
