The whole of my year group who did WJEC ICT has essentially failed due to losing 35-45 marks on coursework. Despite being told coursework was an A*, I got a D for it bringing my predicted grade of an A* to a C.
Anyone else who did WJEC ICT had any problems?

Your teacher was probably being too generous when giving marks and they decided to drop your marks after moderation maybe?

Possibly however we're talking about 2 different teachers and literally everyone who did the coursework has lost 20-40 marks!?

Something similar happened to me last year when I did my ICT GCSE. Nobody got higher than a B, with most students getting Ds or below. This year the results increased, which leads me to believe that we were taught the course incorrectly.

Yeah I did Pearson ICT and was predicted A*s and then I got full marks on the exam but got an E in the coursework which dragged it down to a C overall

I was told that even if i didnt sit the ict exam( with my a* in course work )i should have got a c, however ive just opened my results and am upset to say that it was dropped to a d . I think wjec shouldn't alter the grade boundarys that much as our school has over 300 students in the year group and only one person passed ( with a c) only just scraping through. I think its an outrage and should be looked at.
