# Can you appeal against this GCSE result?

Anyway yh today in the morning I got a mail which had my Business GCSE result in it.

Bascially I had already got my GCSE Business exam result which was on 27th of August - I got 84/90 which is a A

Anyway you also have to do coursework as well for it but they did not have the result for C/W on the 27th due to a system failure so we were gonna recieve that by post.

So anyway got that today and the C/W result is 74 / 90.

So overall the result is a A

But if you add it up 74 and 84 it equals 158.

160 = A*

So basically if you get anything inbetween 160 - 180 it equals a A*

So do I am only 2 marks away from A* - so is it worth appealing or more so do you think they will consider giving me two more marks to get it to a A*?

So 100% is no longer an A ? WTF :x

no................

no - you werent good enough for an A* or they would have given you the marks and the result! Just because you are 2 marks off doesnt make you good enough. That is like saying 'well i failed but im only 2 marks off a pass so can I please have a pass mark'. Good grief - get a grip!

You might get extra marks for trying:)

........................ and if the grammar in your post has anything to do with the result I'd deduct marks and fail you anyway!!!

Are you REALLY that fussed?

LOL forgive me. Thank you anyway.

As long as you get above a C at GCSE the marks really don't matter, if you decide you're going to study a higher qualification.

Well done in your result as its a good one!!

I got 479/600 for my final Biology A level , which was 1 mark off an A, when I wanted to study Biological Sciences at university. Life's a bitch sometimes :thumbsup: (still got in though).

Exactly.

I know someone who was 1 mark off getting a C in math. Had it remarked for £45.

Ended up it'd been marked wrong...

They were actually 3 marks off getting a C...

[COLOR="Red"]You can appeal but it costs money.

Oh and BTW GCSE's (apart from English and Maths) don't mean anything once you start your A-Levels.[/COLOR]
