HOW FUCKED UP IS AQA?!?!?!?!

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
I am SO PISSED OFF.

AQA our exam board for AS english literature has added up al of our marks wrong and given us the wrong grades!!! Surely in that type of organisation they should have some kind of a brain between all the tossers sitting up in their smart offices.

And you'd think they'd double check it anyway!

FFS at least i can fucking add up! maybe they should be the ones that should go back to fucking college!!!!!

And our college is writing to complain about one of the Q's on one of the papers which was just pathetic. So if there are any AQA people out there, YOU SUCK COCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AQA are shit. that's official. art results 3 weeks late out, key skills not even published yet, massively mismarked papers (friend of mine, A-grade spanish student gets two marks above a 'U'), and lots of stress for ne real gain. i hate them, they're shit, fire the lot of them. not that the other boards are much better!

    Nolite te bastardes carborundorum

    Be gratfeul you dont live in Scotland!

    They even fecked up the A'Levels, some results were late. Its not good enough.

    It matters not who won or lost, but how you place the blame.

    Yeah, some of my results are still pending. Lasy basdards; they've had months to mark everything!! lol

    yeah, AQA is very fucked. the other day i found out that i was 1 MARK off an A in GCSE art, which i think i have said before somewhere, but hey i'll say it again coz AQA marked and moderated it, and this is just to say that they are shit. not that i thought my "artwork" was much better, lol, it just shows how stupid and shitty they are to give me that grade when others should really have been higher

    update:

    my school has complained about the Q's on the handmaids tale paper and is hopefully sending EVERY1's paper 4 a remark and i think if ne1 else has experienced their shittyness esp in AS eng lit then i think they should get their school to do the same!!!!!

    *is the latest victim of AQA* <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;

    theyve decided that year 12s cant cope with so many exams, so they think they will relieve the stress a bit by putting all 3 AS level exams for psychology in ONE DAY. in MAY, not even in june. i was hoping to do one in january ffs!! but our school has started teaching from 2 separate modules which seems a bit silly, so i couldnt do an exam in jan even if i wanted to, unless i taught myself the work.

    there was a conference recently, and AQA have actually recommended we learn the bare minimum for the exam. there's 15 choices, you have to answer 3 questions, from at least 2 of the 5 areas. normally we'd be taught at least 8 of the areas, but we have to only do 3, or 4 at the max, and learn them very well in great detail. this gives a lot less choice when we get to the exam, so you have to make sure you know each section inside out. bollocks really.

    and theyre only letting me have the one chance, in january, to retake 2 biology modules that i failed dismally this june... i think they should at least have em next june too! <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">; i mean, maybe we'd be in with a chance of passing them first time if they didnt stick 2 module exams in one day...

    im doing both year 12 and year 13 psychology at the same time btw, if you were wondering <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;

    AQA must die!!

    lol... well it is a bit odd. i just go to all the year 12 lessons (although sometimes i dont if i fancy the challenge of catching up the next day in my frees <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif">;), and all the year 13 ones as well. i pick up the A2 stuff easy enough, its not directly based on what you do in year 12. obviously if youve done AS first, you have a better base understanding of some things, but its easy enough to pick it up. and we're only doing 4 sections in A2, we picked them because we found them interesting (and our teacher said they werent incredibly hard <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/rolleyes.gif">; ) the only place where it would be helpful to have done AS first is the coursework, i dont really have idea whats out there and what i can do <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/confused.gif">; which is annoying. i gotta have a solid idea by tomorrow afternoon <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/eek.gif">; and i so havent.

    but, it can be done <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif">; i was just gonna do AS at first but my year head suggested it, and the headmaster didnt see a problem, so here i am. the AS exams are in may, the A2 in june.
