If this many people have messed up we are looking at pretty low grade boundaries anyway, let’s just hope 😂

Yeah I guess, and most people have the ‘you can’t revise for English language’ attitude so hopefully everyone’s worked together for the low grade boundaries haha😂

can you let me know what they say please
This is what they sent:
Paper 2 Question 3 – Will students automatically get 0 marks if they refer to the wrong source?


No - students may be able to access some marks in this scenario. Examiners apply a best-fit approach.


We will reward where we can based on the skills demonstrated in the response but they wouldn't have used appropriate textual detail so it is unlikely they could advance beyond level 2 in the mark scheme.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

That's good. I had no idea you could even contact AQA about that sort of thing.

Wait this may be a little off topic but I accidently answerd question 3 on a bit of question 2 (so the end part of questionext is on question 2 bit) I made it clear, but what would happen? Would they discard it or answer it with the real question?

Hey I have made that same mistake this year thinking it would be Source B as they always ask for it instead of Source A. That is a relief to hear this after experiencing that, do you think it would still apply this year? Also how was your results because i’m i might fail now :/

Hi, I wasn’t the OP but the same rules should apply to this year, might be worth emailing to check anyway though 😊

Okay so say if the analysis was Level 3, you will get the bottom marks of that because of your analysis but because it was on the wrong source you drop to the bottom ? High L3: 9 marks but instead you’ll get 7. Also how do you know this? Thanks

Yeah i only know like 1 other person who has the mistake... dw i was too before my biology, but i calmed down because at the end of the day you can’t change anything & it’s 12/160 marks. I haven’t had a chance to send an email yet, i think i’ll send one after this, but the other person that made this mistake did & they said that they will award marks for analysis but less for not having the right textual detail.

This is the reply someone else has gotten regarding this year’s paper from AQA:

‘I'm sorry to hear about what happened in your exam. Be assured that for question 3 marks are awarded based on the skills demonstrated in the response but more are awarded for appropriate textual detail. You would not be marked 0 for writing about the wrong source.’

Hi just wanted to update you that I’ve gotten a reply, the email from AQA says the following:

Please don't worry, you'll still be able to access some marks if you've used the wrong source for your answer. Our examiners mark positively and will look to credit you for the skills that you've demonstrated in your writing.

However, you won't be able to access the full range of marks as you won't have used the specified source.
