    yeah i came out of all my exams thinkin i had done extremely well and discussed the answers with friends and ukl members and this gave me even more confidence. Yet in about 4 units i came out with relatively low marks, I was not expecting them at all.

    I don't know if remarking is the right option 4 me coz i got 4As and they might drop marks instead simply coz i am givin them hassle. Lol :rolleyes:

    i meant by goin to medicine school after i finish, the thing is am from Jordan, and i am doing my GCE exams in it, and for the uniz here I will be having a foreign certificate and I have to equivalence it, fp they require 2 Alevels minimum for you both years, i was planning to just finish math in A2, cuz that will be enough to get me to the medicine school.. thats the way it works here.. but now with these marks i cant.. i have to retake them..
    for us here, all the students just sit for their exams, and then they are sent bak to uk, we dont know how do they mark it or wat did we do wrong, we jst get our marks.. thats all...

    You are not the only one who got a shocking set of results...

    I got a C in Biology and a C in Psychology...

    I thought I did well in my biology exam, coupled with the fact that I got an A in the coursework, I though I was on to get a high B grade... I ended up with a C!

    With Psychology, I knew every answer, wrote down all the evaluative points and everything for the exam. I came out thinking that I had got an A, only to find that I had achieved a reeeally average C grade! I was gutted.... I was adament that they had made a mistake with my biology and Psychology...

    Can you appeal for a remarking at all, cos I reckon that I had a *****y examiner marking my papaers.... to go from an a in coursework, to a C overall is amazing! I did not find the biology paper or the psychology papers hard at all, and yet I came out with those grades... it was just puzzling, what had I done wrong??

    Can I appeal? Or isnt it worth it?

    if you guys were expecteing much higher grades i think go ahead and talk to your teachers, and call back your exam papers so you can see where youve gone wrong. aSk for a remark if ure really sure theres something wrong, u havent got anything to lose really!

    i have no idea if it's worth it or not?? and i dnt know if i can do it from here?? i hv no idea.. but i really think its unfair. sum students that i thot will fail in my class actually got more than i got! which made me more SHOCKED.. people who got Dz and Uz in their workcourse got more than i did! and thats when i got Az n Bz in mine! but i still dnt kno if we can appeal??? can anyone tell us plz?

    I got higher than expected. I guessed nearly every answer on the chemistry synoptic multiple choice, and got 77/90, which helped me get an unexpected A overall. Sweet

    I did better than i thought which is good but then again i find that if i think iv done really good, then i dnt do as well and vice versa. However, before asking for a remark it is better to get a photocopy of your paper from the exam board and discuss it with ur teacher to see where you went wrong. Because if you just get a remark they could give a lower grade. Good luck!
