    What happened?!
    I got 2 A's in politics and geography (edexcel) and then a B in french.
    In AS French i got:
    unit 1 = 72/90 (a)
    unit 2 = 110/120 (a)
    unit 3 = 76/90 (a)

    In A2 French i got:
    unit 4 = 65/90 (b)
    unit 5 = 51/90 (d)
    unit 6 = 68/120 (d)

    Don't you find unit 5 & 6 a bit odd, especially seeing as the literature paper (unit 5) was by far my easiest, and the one i felt most confident on. Is it worth the remark - im 22 marks over a B... suggestions?

    i think this year's marks have been a mockery.

    my results are:

    AS French

    Unit 1 = 90/90 (a)
    Unit 2 = 118/120 (a)
    Unit 3 = 72/90 (a)

    A2 French

    Unit 4 = 59/90 (c)
    Unit 5 = 77/90 (a)
    Unit 6 = 120/120 (a)

    no-one at my school got very good marks either. one of my friends did the same topic as me (except that she was contre whereas i was pour) and we revised together (our orals being one after the other) and yet she got a D, and i would have rated her ability as very close to mine.

    My German A2 Results are a bit odd... I'm 4 marks away from an A, (I had about 260 UMS at AS), but my teacher doesn't seem to think it's worth a remark, because she downed my prediction about 3 weeks before the exam to a B.

    I got AAB at AS. Then ECB at A2. Though to be fair, my teacher has been just plain rubbish, and I think my good marks at AS were due to good teaching at GCSE. Still got a B though, which is what I needed.

    Too many people seem to have problems with Edexcel French. There are only 3 people in my class and all of us were told by our teacher that we got As in our coursework (unit 5) but then all our courseworks were marked down and no one got higher than a C. I still got a good A overall but there seems to be quite a few discrepencies from what I've heard from other people who don't go to my sixth form such as unit 4 as well. Good luck to anyone planning to get remarks.

    SOMEHOW i managed a B in unit 4 - and i thought my nuclear energy oral was FANTASTIC and so did he.
    I think all scripts for A2 in particular, should be sent back and remarked.
    Unfortunately for most of us, it is 'risky' to remark but from what it seems (and as a whole, the student room tends to have quite clever candidates), the modern language marking has been pretty dire.
    My friend in the middle of his said 'Oh, ****!' and still came out with a C in the oral. How does that make sense - if you were to swear, surely you should say "ah merde!" - get the language right!
    Who did literature for A2? I think their marking is pretty suspect in this too.
    What a joke
