    Hey -

    Sorry to hear about this. With the nature of coursework, teachers mark it first and sometimes they're too harsh or too lenient. The coursework should have been internally moderated too, if the team of teachers was big enough. This is done to ensure there won't be any big shocks like this when it comes to results day. It looks like your teacher may have been too lenient in marking your work and the exam board has subsequently remarked it. You could ask for the test script back to see what went wrong or if you really want to, a remark. But this is up to you.

    A B is still absolutely fantastic, so please don't be too hard on yourself.
