    So okay I open my English lit A2 results and its straight A's for all five modules, I get down to unit 6 and it's 40/120 which is a solid U for the paper. For unit 5 however, I get full marks 90/90. This bought me down to a B in the end and it pretty much happened to about 60% of people in our year where they mysteriously just failed the last unit, it happened to the best people in our year, of which some still managed to get and A because of getting higher marks elsewhere in other papers. Basically they've all been sent off to be remarked, but I was just wondering whether this happened to anyone else?

    I didn't take it, but apparently it happened to a substantial number of the people in my year who took it.

    i am also getting a remark for this paper as i was 3 UMS off an A overall for English and it has cost me my place at Bristol.

    Hopefully if a lot of us have a problem with the paper AQA will recognise the marking is off and rectify it!

    Well the English Department at my school have requested a re-mark of the papers, since I think all of us got E's and U's, which does not seem right, considering in mocks we all got A-C grades!

    Well I got 120/120, but a friend from another school got a U when he really shouldn't have - I did loads of revision with him and he really knew his stuff.

    i got 108/120, which'll do me fine, though i did feel that unit had gone really quite well and thought i'd get nearer 120? can't be greedy though, it's not like it'd affect my grade.

    that said, there was someone i know who got high as in all other english units and got a d in this unit. which is a little weird as they're one of the best candidates in the year, if not the best. i don't think our school's requesting a remark or anything though.
