Sorry to start another thread on this......where is everyone at with remarks? Now the dust has settled and I have gone through my results with a fine toothcomb, I still feel cheated with my Speaking Marks and some of the Writing Marks. There seems to be no consistency with the way that they have scaled down points, one candidate going from a A* to a B in the Speaking (not in the sample) and another who was in the sample going down to an A from an A*. I have spent a lot of time on the phone to Edexcel demanding why we have still not got an E9 report for the Speaking component, due to techincal hitches we have never got one from the outset. As soon as our sample is sent back for Speaking they expect us send it back to them so they Moderator can write the report, what an absolute joke. Of course they say that the deadline of 20th Sept for request of remarks will be extended for us..........However I don't want to trust Edexcel with anything else quite frankly.The cost of remarks is high and we can only get the whole sample remarked, despite trying to reason with them about wanting to pay for individual candidates who have not even had their exam listened to, to be marked. For the writing, they class it as an exam, sothere is no moderators report and we cannot have access to the scripts of the annotations of marking or anything. I am still very angry that there seem to be no answers and no one from Edexcel willing to account foor the mess up that has occurred. I have written a complaint to the subject advisot and received a bulk standard reply from somone on the Assessment Team at Edexcel. They have advised going down the remark route, but it is a hell of a lot of money to spend if nothing is going to change (reading a similar post about remarks on here just a while ago where it said nothing has been changed) Would be interested in hearing anyone's experiences and what has happened for your kids. Thanks.
