A disqualification, is not a U afaik, it's a classification of its own. But no, an E is the minimum grade required to get the qualification.

wait what? How can you identify someone from their twitter @? AQA is not MI5

I'm really interested on how AQA investigate these types of situations...

I am, too. How did they know that Twitter account was yours? How did they even receive and process the evidence?

Unless you're functionally stupid and have your name and surname up on there I just don't see how AQA can assume a twitter @ like @ILoveSamosas to be Peter Smith from east london.

Disqualifications require more evidence than just a story and a screenshot.
