    when I recieved my photography grade i was really dissappointed because it wasnt what i expected... (i got an E grade and was expecting a B) my teacher himself told me that, thats probably what i would get, but i didnt. most of my class also recieved an E garde or U and only like two people got a B? but why was i put down as an E? i compared my work to the other classmates and there work was no where near how much i had done? and i followed the mark scheme with a lot of experimantation, observations, final pieces, artist research and im pretty sure everything linked!

    i found it really unfair... im planning to get it remarked but should i ask my teacher before hand to see if it is worth it because what if there isnt a change in my grade and i have to pay around £42 for each unit?

    I also heard that its teachers who mark our books? and if it was my teacher who gave me a low grade why did he tell me i was doing really well?

    since it is the new spec does the grade that i got this year count? can someone please tell me how it works? thanks in advance

    Hey there, I did new spec AS Art on the Graphic Communication syllabus and achieved a B grade. Our exam board was Eduqas / WJEC.

    If you PM me and show me your sketchbook, maybe I could advise you on if you were unfairly marked?

    Oh and, no. Your AS grade will not count towards your A2 grade with the new spec. Only the work you do next year will count for it, so I guess you don't need to worry too much about getting an E.

    our exam board was AQA? so does the grade count or not? is it the same for all boards doing the new spec?

    i cant show you my sketchbook atm because it is at school, so when i retrieve it hopefully on the 5th of september if possible i will try and show you and thanks for the reply

    Ah we use digital sketchbooks at my school for Graphic Communication and Photography so I thought you would have been able to give me a copy to look at!

    The great doesn't count, it's the same for all boards doing the new spec, so don't worry so much!
