    So I got some English lit coursework back at school (year 10)..... and was wondering if the mark given to me by tecaher is the "real" guaranteed mark for that piece of coursework... because I did rather well :yep: and really want that mark.
    Thanks

    YES! :awesome:, some classes work is sent off for moderation though, usually this is just one or two people (randomly) - to be sure the teacher is marking accurately. SO unless it's found there not, either way. You're safe...

    Should be; but it can get changed when it's moderated along with coursework that's been done by the rest of the class. That's why you help them get A*s in the first place. :awesome:

    Apart from moderation, yes. But even if it is moderated, its unlikely it will change by more than a few marks. Unless your teacher is REALLY incompetent.

    That depends upon whether your teacher has marked your coursework properly. If, after standardisation at your school and after moderation with the exam boards everything is given the a-ok, then yes, you'll get the same mark as your teacher gave you. That said, if at your school's standardisation meeting and during moderation the moderators found that there was a slight discrepancy in the marking, then your mark may be lowered/increased accordingly.

    Stop overusing the :awesome: emotion. It weakens the effect. :awesome:

    I think the general rule is + or - two marks.

    Not necessarily. If the moderators believe that your teacher has been way too lenient with you, then they can increase/lower your mark as much as they see fit.
