    I got an A (80ums) in Unit 3 but got a U (29ums) in Unit 4. I am so confused, I literally left unit 4 feeling like it was the best of all my exams. I have no idea what went wrong. Nearly cost me my uni place giving me an overall C (due to an A in unit 1 and B in unit 2) but Leeds were nice enough to still let me in!

    So similar to me. I was predicted an A* in BUSS4 all my model answers before the exam were A* my teacher is an examiner she said I was guaranteed it but I got a B grade. I left the exam feeling super confident, thought I had written an answer worth full marks, my teacher is so confused herself. I don't understand the marking this year!! Makes no sense

    Failed BUSS4 which carried my grade down. Will I still be able to retake it next year even though the syllabus has changed and AQA no longer follow the old spec?

    Hey guys, I was 2 UMS from getting an A in business this year with BUSS4 letting me down ever so slightly. I think I didn't answer question 2 properly and can see why an examiner would argue that I didn't fully explore the question (I picked the leadership one and focused a little too much on retrenchment), I got my uni place and am considering getting a re mark. Is this worthwhile and is there a possibility I'll drop down to a C grade if I get a remark (if I do that I'll actually miss my uni offer.) thoughts?

    I got my BUSS3 remark back today and it jumped from 72 to 100 UMS. Whilst happy at the outcome, I think my anger overshadows. I have several friends who missed their uni offers as a result of poor marks in business - all of which stem from AQA's ability, or shall I say inability, to train their examiners sufficiently.

    I'd urge anyone who feels they should have been awarded higher - whether you're close to the boundary or not - to get a remark.

    yeah I had 103 UMS for buss3 but a U for buss4? I wrote 10 pages for it and im pretty sure i got at least 30 marks at worse lmao. I only needed 4 extra marks for a B overall for the entire A level.

    I done buss4 last year and got an A, I would strongly suggest that ecommerce will not appear this year as it was our section A last year.

    My class has just started and I think Ecommerce is a pretty easy one because we have grown up in its peak and know/use many businesses that are in it.
