    I just got my AS results. I take RS, and in the Ethics paper I got 97% and in Philosophy 71%.
    I was predicted 100 UMS in philosophy and it went so much better than the ethics exam. I swear it was the best paper I've ever written and I NEVER feel that way about an exam - I actually felt confident that I would get an A in it. The result is very suspicious and we are having to file a clerical error. I dropped exactly 25 marks which is the amount for a part A question so we think that it just wasn't logged.

    I love RS and I was planning to do it at uni and this is very confusing. I know that I didn't mess up that paper.

    Has anyone had any similar experiences? If the enquiry comes back clear, should I ask for a re-mark even though I'm on the B/C border? I honestly know that I didn't mess this up so I'm so frustrated


    Update: OCR Religious studies btw

    Is this OCR? Mine is super weird too. I got a C, really close to a B I think but the numbers are really weird and don't correlate? I thought the exam went really well and thought I'd got an A... I feel like they haven't even looked at my paper and just given me a random grade based off my plan...

    Yes!!! It is OCR. I do Philosophy of Religion and Religious Ethics modules.

    I was so sure that I had got a high A in Philosophy - I thought I would get a lower mark in ethics as I don't enjoy it that much.

    It's really worrying me as I was going to apply to theology specialist universities - they're sending off a clerical enquiry tomorrow morning. Fingers crossed.

    I really don't understand it. Mine says 63 in Philosophy which was a C, and 73 for a B in Ethics and 136 all together? But it just seems soooo low... I have no idea what went wrong - IF it did and if it was just me.. However I haven't had lower than an A all year in any of my class essays? Cried when I opened my results this morning. Was predicted AAB and I got BCD? No idea how I did so bad

    I am the same, however my exam board is edexcel. This exam was the one I was sure I'd got an A on but I wound up getting 74/100 on one of the exams which is a B (and I genuinely don't know why it wasn't an A, I included everything from class and was so confident) and 64/100 on the first, i dont understand why i have got so low. I got 138/200 all together which is 2 marks off a B. and I have got consistent A's all year, so it's fair to say this is a shock. I just want to know what I did wrong because I felt like I'd done a good job when I came out of the exams and it's all that hard work for a bloody C!

    One of the questions in the OCR exam was the exact one I'd done in class which I got full marks on and then somehow, I got a C on that paper? I answered it exactly the same, if not better, in class. I reckon its just the bunch of markers. Teachers mark so differently. One teacher will read something and think its an A, the other a C. Sad, but depends on the marker you got.

    I've just made a thread on this too! I've come off EdExcel with a D despite being predicted an A with absolutely no change to what I've done in class. It's so bizarre. Really tempted to get a remark.

    I'm going to get a remark too as I don't understand how I've gone from getting full marks to a C... It makes no sense... If any of you did English Lit OCR, OMG, how hard I worked to get a D. Just feel sooo upset

    sorry to hear that, a lot of people at my college got E's in lit. Very difficult grade boundaries!

    I found the paper so easy!? No idea how I got a D. You needed half marks to get an E!!
