I've just received 3 remarks back, and it feels like it's harsher than in previous years. My 2 maths papers didn't change, my economics paper went up by 1 UMS. Exam board is edexcel

Ofc its more difficult because they will now only change on genuine error and not difference of opinion.

Unit 3, went up from 64 to 65 UMS
Missed A* by 5 UMS
175/200 total
I think 69 and 106 breakdown

Sent remark for U4 because for 30 marker my points weren't in mark scheme but more than valid and relevant to question.


Also sent Edexcel English Literature for which the marking was absolutely baffling and borderline insane.
Highest score was myself with 86/120 UMS in the whole year group... was getting A* all year.

2 marks is still pretty possible, what subject though? Do you have a uni place riding on this?

Sent remarks for FP2 and FP3 for OCR
I've requested the copy back for FP3 because I think they didn't mark the extra paper as I got higher than my result due to me knowing all the answers cause I had them on my calculator and compared with the tsr mark scheme.
4 marks off of an A*

Ahh well done! You'll be fine, of all the subjects, I'd have thought English would have the potential to change most

Yeh English papers in general always seem to have very odd marking. I was getting A's throughout the year yet I end up with a C in the exam ... Very shocked, especially given I did better in the AS retake which I thought I'd flopped and didn't do much work for :/
