How did you get on with the remark? Hope you have some good news. My brother had his AH Modern Studies upgraded from a B to an A, although he was initially only one
point off the grade boundary.

The scandal worsens. She got moved up from a C to a high B. So instead of her getting 33% for paper 1 they gave her around 63%. That’s quite a jump, some might say scandalous in itself 30% extra wow. Only she neither got 33% or 63% for paper 1. 93% is possible but at least 80%. She worked hard and should have got an A. We have made a subject Access review and we have requested her marks under Freedom of Information as well. I think the SQA is an immoral corrupt organisation, not fit for purpose. If there are any investigative journalists out there please contact me. The SQA need investigated and reformed in particular transparency installed, why on earth cannot I see her paper there wouldn’t be this problem if I could. The fight goes on.

That’s good she’s at least gone up to a B grade, but I can see why you are upset. My brother did not get his new mark breakdown after the remark, just his new grade. Is the school able to provide the mark breakdown for the remark?

4As and a B are still excellent grades, though, and she should get offers for all her choices.

Going to say it again - this is not "grotesque" or "corruption" (a very, VERY serious allegation to make against an exam board). Sounds like she had a bad marker (it happens, I went from an A to a B in psychology A-Level, but marking is subjective!), and a bad day - a dip to a B is easily explained. I doubt it'll be helping your daughter to be going through this stress now, when she's in the next stage of her education. It's best to just chalk it up to having a bad day and moving on - one bad grade is not the end of the world.
