Hi All, Some advice. Please don't have a go. I am a new HoD from Sept with 4 years under my belt in a really successful dept. Just giving you some context before someone jumps down my neck about my lack of knowledge. We, as a school, have never appealed before because of marks just not being adjusted. However, I may consider appealing the practical marks for Unit 2. I watched the DVD I sent off twice since getting the results. We were marked down by 7! Some of the students on there are clearly band 1 and not band 2 as moderated in my opinion. The same students were also band 1 in Unit 1 and NOT moderated down. Students on the video can be heard saying 'through the use of thought tracking and still image in this lesson, I have learnt that the character of Linda feels weak - this could be down to the social context of the play, living in Liverpool in the 80s was tought and the lower working classes were hard hit by the reforms of the tory government. Linda's weakness could also be because of Mickey for example, in the still images the use of proxemics highlighted this as the two characters created space between them showing that their relationship was slowly growing apart...' I can go on - but I won't. This student has been marked top of BAND 2!!!! Unfair. Anyway, if I appeal, can I just appeal the practical marks. It seems to state this on the chief examiners report. Also, could the marks go DOWN if it do appeal? Thanks for the help.
