Anyone know if it will be taken into consideration that we had to teach ourselves and didnt get to finish our courses for these exams?
susieslife
the department probably contacts the schools? It should be taken into account but I feel like we're being ignored

its def very hard to study on our own, no teachers help or anything! I really hope its taken into consideration...
Melodilifluous
doubt it, they are really setting us up for failure. with the limited time to study and the whole error fiasco and the long wait for appeal results were such huge distraction on our already short study period. wish they'd just reinstate the teachers grades like the way every country did.
Aoife.furey
Is everyone here doing biology ?
