Uncharacteristic AS mark watch

    • Thread Starter

    For Drama and theatre studies AS I generally get about 26ish/ 50 per essay, and this is just about a B. In my results I got 10/50 so a U, this was so unexpected as I did so many past papers, and preparation type stuff, and I felt my response was one of the best ones I've ever done. On the other part of the theory paper I got 25/ 50, and I thought it went really badly so am quite pleased with that one. I'm getting it remarked, and I just was wondering what could be the cause of this, it pulls my grade down to a D (...very disappointed). I'm dyslexic, and my writting can be rather difficult to read at times, so that could be the cause.
    But does anyone have a similar problem/ know what could be the cause? (Am very disappointed with it).

    (Original post by gomc)
    this is me for geography - i got a c (1 mark off a b) with the 1st unit being 1 mark off an a and the 2nd being 1 mark of a c
    the thing is during the year the mocks i sat were 2 ums off full ums, so i should have gotten an a easily.
    my handwriting is also awful so im wondering if this is an issue
    actually so disappointed but good luck to you with the future
    Thanks and you too are you AS or A2?
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
