    Dear everyone,

    Is anyone finding their AQA Psychology A (june 2016 series) results slightly shocking/surprising? Throughout the year for mocks, I've been getting really good marks A/A* for my unit 3 Psychology essays. However, in the real thing; I came out with a C! I'm not sure whether it's because my teacher is too lenient or is there a possibility of AQA messing up the marking...I say this because I've done really well for unit 4, but the difference between the two scores brought me down to a very low A, of which I am very happy about of course. But essentially, it costed my university place...

    Do you guys reckon it is worth remarking and honestly, what even are the chances to pull up my C to an A* ( I've calculated and I need 17ums to make an average of 90% across both units)?

    Thank you very much for helping and I do hope all of you received the results you wanted! X
