    I don't see the problem with modules. Higher education tends to be modular, so why should secondary education not be?



    I also don't see the problem with resits. In the majority of working environments you will get more than one chance to complete a task if it doesn't go to plan the first time.

    I just looked at the grade boundaries which were released earlier today, and although it doesn't tell me what I needed to get to get 99% on the UMS, it says 72/80 was required to get 144/160 on the UMS, so it seems Edexcel recognise that the exam was pretty easy as they've lined them up straight which isn't usual, and I think that was pushed further by the regulator's screaming and shouting recently.

    Just as a contrast, to get 72/80 in the chemistry exam that I took (what you need for an A*), you only needed 47/60. It's not about anarchy within the exams system, it's just the exam boards' way of maintaining fairness and consistency as if my exam was harder than someone else's then that needs to be adjusted.

    So, you should probably be able to land that job at McD's now?

    I got an A overall. Turns out I did nowhere near as well in that paper as I thought I had but I guess that's a good thing as that relieves the pain associated with this story. Happy ending I guess?

    Is a summer job in a massage parlour considered a step up the ladder from McD's?

    So only answering the questions on one side of the paper still gets an A these days.
    I was born at the wrong time.

    Spelling your name correctly gets a C

    It doesn't cost anything to you, if you retake it you pay yourself. And why should it matter? Anything could happen to make you do badly or perform badly.

    Mate I missed out one question.

    2 marks off an A* in physics and 1 mark off an A* in chemistry. I'm getting those remarked at MY EXPENSE of £23.20 per exam and there's no guarantee the mark will go up - it could even go down.
