Something wrong with my Geography GCSE result? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,
    I got my GCSE results yesterday and I noticed I got an A for geography. I was fine until I realised that I got an a for Unit 1, an a* for unit 2 and an a* for unit 3. This means that over 60% of my grade is a*, so why was it marked down to an a? Btw I did AQA Geography A. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Should I contact AQA?

    If you know the UMS marks you could check the grade boundaries online. Sometimes they look strange but are added up correctly
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
