    Was anyone else surprised with their IGCSE English Language result? I got full marks for coursework throughout year 10 and year 11, 1 mark off an A* for speaking and listening and got an A overall. I did feel like I messed up question 1 on the exam, but I don't think I lost that many marks overall. I wouldn't really be bothered if this was another subject, but I want to study English at a top university, so it does bother me a bit. Loads of other people in my year who were expected Bs got Ds and even some A/A* students got low Cs. I can't speak to my exams officer about it at all because my actual mark wasn't on my exam report, so I have to ask the English department about it on the first day back. Anyone else surprised at all?

    I'm sorry, is your school appealing? I know mine is, my English department were in tears on results day. People are saying that apparently there was a lack of examiners and a lot of papers were marked in a rush :/
