    I'm trying to work out why I got the grade I did at A Level and I've been told it might be to do with 'grade adjustment'. What is that? I did the exam with Cambridge International if that's relevant.
    Thanks!

    Hard to say, but sometimes exam boards do checking for consistency and quality control. Your paper might have been selected for marking and they adjusted it up or down.

    Thanks, maybe that's what has happened. I've asked my exam officer if they know what to do as well.
