I have a date already to view the papers and they agreed to do a photocopy of her English paper. I wonder if they will mark it too and it would be intesting to see if there is a shift in marks. You could hold on Tigger and I can give feedback back if there is a shift in marks and you can decide if its worth the risk. Its around 20 Nov when I have the appointment.
The english is not marked - it is only marked if there was a HT appeal. You will get ia copy of it back just as your dd wrote it.
Rarley is there a shift in marks and personally i beleive they would not mark a student down if they found that the computer had incorrectly given
an extra mark - i think this situation is unlikly as the computer/optical reader is checking the little boxes for marks in the correct places - it may not notice a very faint mark but would not accidently add a mark that is not there at all.
Also if a mistake is uncovered - to your favour- it is rare that they actually make this a part of your dc's formal record. BUT you could tell the appeal panel about the mistake the optical reader made.
