You needed to read the instructions for moderation this year!. The exam standards 'people' have made them come in line with the other boards. Section 6 I think: http://pdf.ocr.org.uk/download/kd/ocr_67086_kd_gce_el_ins_to_centres_regarding_moderation.pdf? They used to give on-the-day feedback and re-mod option too, but the rules have changed this year. You can't get a re-mod with them now until the results have come out, then the exact sample that was displayed has to go back up (a lot of trouble).... at least that's my understanding of it! The A'Level moderator shouldn't have been so open, but if they've been doing it for years they probably saw no harm in a bit of praise!
