Hi I know there was 2 papers sat in English Language. My daughters paper was due to be sent off for a remark due to her only being a few points off the next grade. Since the start of the new school term the headmaster has changed the schools criteria and is only sending papers off that were one mark off the next grade. I have challenged this and I’m covering the cost myself. After speaking to the exams officer today she stated that only one paper is being returned for remark, I challenged this but she insisted there was only one paper for language. Surely they can’t just remark one paper and not both to get a true grading.

Are they paying or you? If you want just pay for both or the other paper.

Depends on the exam board.

This is AQA specification at a glance for English language gcse.

2 papers + 1x NEA


If only one is returned they will just keep the mark already made with the other.

The most likely outcome is still no change, but you cant get much closer if they have made a remark. I think 1-3 its worth a look.
