    Did anyone have really really low writing marks?
    I am gutted for my students who worked so hard and have ended up with 2 or even 3 grades loweer than expected.
    is it worth appealing? asking for a remark
    Students who wrote imperfect subjunctives longer sentences ended up with 16 / 60 these are my top set students!!!

  3. We did AQA but I am shocked at the writing grades. Students writing more than 500 words of lovely French, flawless gramatically with loads of complex structures getting a B. Don't understand why. Maybe we should all ask for re-marks to show them what we think.

    I am shocked
    I have A* students with a D and when I look at their other exam marks for listening and reading they are all A*
    Makes no sense to me!!
    is it worth remarking & if so many teachers are upset will they take notice and action?

    I am looking through the breakdown on Results Plus and at the moment they majority are down at least one grade from what I thought they should be.

    Mine are about 3 grades down and I am shocked and disappointed
    I went to the Edexcel trainning
    I have never had any of my previous coursework marked down so I know the marks I would have awareded them would have been more or less spot on
     
  7. Mine too - e.g., D grade given to CA I'd judged to be A grade - surely we can't be that wrong?
     
  8. Please have a look at the other thread on her regarding Edexcel marks. A lot being said and we need to do something about it.

    My students lost at least 20 marks on their writing!
     
  10. I have exactly the same problem! A student has all A* and used to live in Spain but got a D for his writing - it cannot be correct. My HOD is asking for them to be remarked
