    AS level or A2???

    If AS level was this linear?

    This is flippin ridiculous - you need to give us the details on what subject you did.

    If you did an essay based subjective this would kind of be understandable if you got a high C followed by a low A remark.

    However if this is a STEM subject this just shows that the system is complete bullsh*t...

    Either the remarker was really lenient or the first marker was harsh...

    ...at least you're happy

    They said it was AQA geography A GCSE.

    The system is still complete bullsh*t imo.

    I said ''AQA GEO GCSE''.

    TBH, I was expecting to get an 'A' in the subject.

    Maybe questions were missed? It's quite a rare thing to happen, and it's quite evident that there were major errors in the first marking of your paper.

    The OP has just said, "I lied. I needed to hype some people up."

    Looks like they were just seeking attention after all. Sad, I know.
