    I'm to impatient to wait for the copy! I figured that my mark was 2 UMS off a C in which case if I only got 2 marks extra, then I wouldn’t have to pay.

    It cost £45 but as I say I hope the grade changes so I get my money back!

    Edexcel seems to really have screwed my school over- our U6 received pretty much unanimous Cs and Ds, and we had people in our year receiving A for one unit and an E for the other...and then for History Unit 1 we had people receiving full marks when they'd been predicted Ds and Es O.O

    Sorry this post doesn't follow the set format...pretty much our entire L6 and U6 faced the same problem except a lucky few (including me =D) so I couldn't really categorize =S

    Comments: Well I am half hoping they put my raw marks down or something. I got 95%+ on all practice papers and paper was not dissimilar to that which I practised on. People have also said that this module is arguably the easiest module in maths so I reckon I should query it.
    Remark? maybe, requested photocopy.

    If your 3 marks off...A remark could gain you those 3 marks :p:. Perhaps you could get a photocopy of your paper back and then decide...but its upto u
    Thanks

    But the results throughout the entire sixth form was very dodgy to be honest. The senior teachers have officially decided that something did go wrong, and have asked for a handful of papers back. Then they will assess them to see if the marks were fair (my teacher is an official Unit 1 examiner). If there's something fishy about the marks, they appeal on behalf of all the students. If not...then well, tough.

    Just gotta work harder next time :rolleyes:

    Comments: I did well in the mock, and really didn't think the exam went this badly. Prior to this I had 283/300 for my AS, so it's a bit disappointing.
    Remark? Not sure because I am still in a fairly good position due to my AS.

    Of course, the problem could be due to me entirely, although I felt I revised hard and was expecting atleast a C grade.
