    I do Religious Studies at A level, and I got a B at AS which I was fine with. There are three people in my class, and after getting As in mocks all year, the others only got Cs, and felt that the teacher's marking must be poor. So, I handed in an essay they had already marked to see if the grade would come back the same. But they found out, so I had to explain why I had done it and I just feel really awful, like I've exploited them. Its only their second year of teaching and I feel like I betrayed them.

    You didn't have to explain, but now you have there's nothing you can do. You'll just have to move on and carry on with your school work, because you can't take it back now.

    I cant see the problem other than you have used a bit of deception, wasted time and been caught.
    What you should do is alk to the teacher about your concern of the grade differences. Its normal to score lower in mocks as it stops you being complacent. Maube do some more essays so noth you and your teacher can work towards getting A's by their new standard.

    No need to feel bad, but its a good idea to work with your teacher.

    As someone going through to be a teacher, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Challenging the grade you were given is fine. You probably should have asked for clarification, but it's all right to challenge a grade.

    The only people who would care would be those whose papers are easily challenged.
