Exam board: AQA
Subject: Eng Lit (Modern Novel)
Apparent Grade: D
Grade you feel that you got: A/B
Comments: I saw the question, and was quite pleased as I knew everything about it, and I rather liked it. But I ended up with a D. I had thought that I did ok, but definitely not as low as I got. I have noted that abnormally low grades in Eng Lit was a major problem in our school, and with many people on TSR.
Remark? Most likely, will leave it up to the school for a while to see if they send it themselves; if not then I will.

Exam boarddexcek
Subject:Bio4, Phy3,Phy4
Apparent Grade:A(82/100),A(96/120),B(70/90)
Grade you feel that you got:A(90+/100),A(100/120),A(72/90)
Remark? Y

I got the highest mark in my class for mock and i'm the top scorer in Bio4 most of the time in my class, how could i've got that score, ridiculous! The physics 3 was just a nonsense, everyone in my class got 100+-, even those that failed their practical tests! Unit 4 was even worse, one of my friend who always scored D in mocks got an A!!!!(i'm not underestimating him, but he failed almost everything, except Unit 4 Phy which he scored exceptionally well). I would really consider getting my bio 4 and phy 3 remarked. I'm an international applicant, so it's impossible for me to get a photocpied answer script..anyway i demand justice.

You're an International student too? Edexcel seems to have cocked up a lot of our results too, but for History...people getting Ds and Es, and the most bizarre people obtaining full marks...my school's convinced it's some Edexcel system failure, because there was apparently a site crash or something, so we couldn't get our results for 4 days after they were released

I really do think theres something wrong with Edexcel at the moment, because its the same for physics and chemistry at my college...Maybe someone should speak up and tell them...

Subject: Economics National and International Economy paper
Apparent Grade: C
Grade you feel that you got: A
Comments: Well i've taken this paper for 3 terms straight i.e. jan 07 jun 07 and now june 08 and i have stayed on the grade C going up maybe by a few marks, what i don't get is that i am now in A2 doing UK economy and that means i am basically doing the above paper in more detail so our teacher said we really should be easily getting an A (like doing c1 in maths after c3 and c4 etc) we also did a mock for the UK economy and i am on a borderline A at A2, i'm not going to give up though and am going to have one last crack in june, 4th time lucky lol

I'm also an international student doing Edexcel and the results were MUCH lower than expected/predicted for subjects such as Chemistry (Jan 08 exams). I definitely feel there has been a problem with the results for us.

I decided not to go for re-mark, instead i'll just re-sit the paper..sigh..due to the fact that my director of studies strongly suggested against the idea of remarking..
