    Hi,
    I've noticed that there have been a tremendous amount of people who on TSR or otherwise who feel that the grades they have got where not the grades they should have got...now it may be down to coincidence or maybe there is a problem with the actual exam board...If you have had a problem post it below with the following criteria:

    Sorry to go off topic, but this seems to be the best place to ask this.

    Is there time to get the photocopy and then the remark? Will they be that quick?

    After you get your results slip [should be this thursday] you will be able to request a photocopy and a remark, and all details should be given with the results slip. I haven't done a remark before but the photocopies are fairly quick, within 2-5 days...

    Apparant Grade:C (67/100)
    Grade you feel that you got:A
    Comments - Shocked me that one because the paper seemed really easy at the time and I thought there was a good chance of getting 90+/100.Just need to rule out any possibility of me screwing up the paper which is why I've ordered a photocopy.The odd thing about 67 is that it's about what I thought I'd come out with in terms of raw marks but certainly not UMS.So I think they might not have scaled it.The others in my class did badly as well for the record .
    Remark? Very likely
