    I had an A in my coursework, counted an A* when we reviewed the paper and I found the final exam with really low grade boundaries easy. All going well, but I've apparently got a B!I can't even begin to understand how this has happened!Anybody else doing this course and had a disappointing score?

    Should I have it remarked?

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Well done on the coursework.

    You can never really tell how you got on in an exam as you can't remember exactly what you wrote and how you wrote it. Maybe it just didn't go quite as well as you thought ...???

    I'm not sure I would recommend a remark - the system has changed making it a bit more difficult to get moved up. Also, a grade B is a good achievement - do you really need that A?

    Let me know what you decide to do.

    It was a multi-choice exam, so it was pretty easy to remember what I picked.

    To be honest, I've calmed down a little bit, so probably won't bother. Especially as I'm not taking it for A Level.

    Thanks for your help.

    No problem. Sounds like a sensible decision. Good luck with the A levels.
