They totally messed up the marking of my geo gcse last year and i ordered a remark and it went up 2 grades! B to A*. Turns out they 'forgot' 2 6 mark pages in my paper because the centre they were markin was a high school thus low quality! and now theyve messed up my AS bio! They just cannot be bothered to find the answers in the scripts so they mark it all wrong!!
I've had better results with AQA this year at AS then other exam boards. But they were awful at GCSE and I was with them for about 8 out of 11 subjects. They messed up so many peoples papers.... but unfortunately all the exam boards are like this now, they are no longer bothered about providing schools and colleges with the services they are paid for.
that happened with the english lit AS last year at my school. it can happen with any exam board- one neglectful team leader/moderator is all it takes. i've found AQA to be alright otherwise
They gave me a B in German AS. Tosspots...
Bit of a sweeping statement really. Never had any problems and I've had tens of exams marked by AQA.
I know an A-Level AQA marker... those of you who did English A-Level papers this year couldve been marked by her and let me tell you she wasnt impressed with most of those papers heh.
She kept on slamming them all, was quite funny although disturbing as someones life was in a low-paid in-debt Teacher who was generally depressed....
Not good IMO, im suprised the whole marking thing works at all TBH.
