A fantastic trip report Wayne with an extra fantastic homecoming to results like that. I think Matt deserves a special holiday to somewhere like Disney World!!

Thats our reward, a trip to WDW in Oct/Nov without him
Looking for flights for Easter, he will be able to go with us on that one.

He has updated his Achievements page now, it's growing http://mathewgillings.wordpress.com/...nd-experience/

Thanks for organising dismeet - nice to chat to people and put faces to names.

Madeleine says well done Matt (and then added 'that is the one who was playing catch with me in the pool isn't it?)
Thanks for all your comments and postings over the last year - it really helped us make the absolute most out of our hol from the indirect flights to the dining to OKW which we loved.

Welcome home.
Just read the post to Matt.
Glad our help with your planning worked so well.

Matt has decided to have his Psychology unit 4 paper remarked. Units 1,2 & 3 he gained an A grade in each, unit 4 has give him an overall grade of B but only 2 marks away from an A overall. Doesn't make a great deal of difference to him but he was expecting an A, even with all the others being A*, A's and Distinction the B is bothering him when he knows he should have got A in that subject.

Don't blame him.

Nearly 20 yrs ago I got a B in my history A level when I'd always been an 'A' student in that subject. Teacher told me i'd missed by a mark. I still got on my university course and didn't even realise I could have gone for a remark. Knowing what i know now I would have asked for a remark. Two of my husband's A level grades were increased after a remark (good job or I wouldn't have met him at Uni )

Whatever the outcome at least he'll know for definite.

Remark results have arrived for Unit 4 Psychology:
Original mark 68 UMS Grade C = overall Grade B
Remark 85 UMS Grade A = overall Grade A

I think whoever marked originally was having a bad day, Matt knew he should have had A.

Final grades now:
Sociology: A*
English Language: A
Psychology: A
General Studies: A
EPQ: A
AQA Baccalaureate: Distinction

Well worth the remarking then...Congratulations to Matt on an already excellent set of results that just got better!

But what a difference in the marking though - totally shocking and disgraceful how he could have been marked so low in the first place...makes you wonder about the other kids marked by the same person and if anyone lost out.

Fantastic results Matt.

Not sure if it's a difficult subject to mark, but my DD took her 1st Psychology unit in Jan this year (AS) - nearly all the class had to have their papers re-marked and jumped 1 or 2 grades when completed.
