Looking into the detailed analysis of the AQA A2 LRW paper (Unit 3) using the Enhanced Results Analysis, I noticed some surprising and concerning marking of the essay question. One candidate went up 14 UMS on a remark and I am assuming the essay question was at issue. I had excellent candidates getting quite good marks and reasonbale candidates getting excellent marks on the essay. I wonder if anyone else has these concerns and if anyone from AQA is a having a look, i wonder if this has been flagged up as a potential problem. The issue is that if you score poorly on content, you cannot score better on language. This, to my mind, is rewarding the wrong thing, especially when we are nortmeant to be assessing cultural content in the first place. If the mark scheme has to remain the same I hope AQA will suggest to examiners that they interpret the content section a bit more liberally. I do not trust this question and I fear excellent candidates are losing marks unfairly.
