I'm getting a remark because I was on track for an A in English literature , I got A's in past papers and everything - and then in the actual exam I get a C???!


I am 99.99% sure they have marked it wrong, if it was a B I wouldnt be so sure of it but it's the fact it's apparently a C and I am so certain that it's not bad enough to be a C..does anyone else have this problem? It's with AQA igcse English lit

Went opposite for me. Never got above a B in English Literature but ended up with an A star. But coursework can be remarked and sometimes you can feel like you did well but not come out with an expected grade. I did the same paper. Don't worry about it though, a-levels are what really count

Omg hey we did the same exam! And I was quite disappointed with mine because I got full marks for my coursework and the exam was really easy. However I got an A instead of what I usually get. I know it's not a big deal but it was quite a shock. And same thing happened with history, can't believe I got a C.

If you are 99.9% sure then get it remarked abd you will get your money back. You cna also get your exam paper back which you can compare to the mark scheme.
