My school seems to have fallen victim to an unusually large number of screwups from Edexcel, and I was wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same thing. So far, we've had:

- One person with two of someone else's Maths modules(!), taking him from ~190/200 to ~90/200 in those modules
- Three people doing Further Maths (Additional) ASes who have three missing modules (I'm one of them :mad:)
- One person with four(!) Maths modules missing
- One full marks Music module lost
- Lots of suspect moderation in Music
- Lots of poor mark assignment (i.e. not the highest possible UMS) for people doing extra Maths modules

And apparently a couple of other schools are having similar difficulties. Bearing in mind we've had no real problems from OCR or AQA this year, is this really reasonable?

Edexcel are notoriously rubbish. Last year for our Psychology coursework, not one person got higher than a D due to their screw up on the mark boundaries. It forced us to all do over our work for a re-mark, when we should have just been concentrating on A2.

Anyway, that sounds particularly awful :mad:, i dont know about any similarities this year, or in that subject, but i sympathise.

I'm fluent french and got told by my teacher that both my oral and coursework modules were A grades, however on my results the marks seem to indicate U/E grades, whilst my writing is still a high B/A (at a guess) and I got full marks in nearly all my french modules last year, yet only got a C overall...reaaaly not liking edexcel right now.

on my statement of results i have an overall result for my maths A-level which says what i got in each of my maths modules and when i took them. But i dont have this for further maths it just says the modules i took this summer. Then for my AS geography which i did last year and got an A in it says, 'X no result', i only noticed this when i got home and now im realy worried.

In january my friend retook edexcel A geography unit 4. Her result came back as a D. She got her paper back and my teacher looked at it and they hadnt given her credit for any valid points. SHe sent it back for remarking and went from a D to a high B. Edexcel are apparently notorious for using training teachers - people that arent even qualified to teach the subject!!
