Edexcel: Didn't go to 2 out of 3 papers for exam, got a C watch

    • Thread Starter


    For a particular Edexcel subject I got a high A at AS, but for A Level, I only went to 1 paper (out of 3 total). I was planning to drop the subject after I went to the 1 paper (didn't need it for my offer), but I thought that simply not going to the other 2 papers would meant that I got withdrawn from the subject (I was stupid - apparently I should have requested that they not mark my paper). Apparently not - imagine my shock when I got a "C" back for my final results.

    Does anyone know of any way I could get the C "struck" from my record? Currently I have A*AAC, which looks horrible for employers.


    A C doesn't look that bad..only way you could have it got rid of is by resitting I think

    Nah you can't just get rid of it. You'd have to "resit" the two exams you didn't sit and arrange private entry
