Hope you results went well, but if your points don't go according to plan, please don't worry there are so many options for you, of course you could repeat your LC to gain the necessary points.

Has the business been marked hard ??
Would they be up today as their not up yet
I was a student who didn't do the best on the LC. I did a Plc course and from that a degree and a masters and I'm now a teacher. So don't get too worked up over weak results, there's always another path.
Yah they are not up yet still
I'm usually an A1 business student and my grades have always been consistent throughout the last two years. I didn't find the business paper extremely challenging and I was disappointed with my result on Wednesday. My entire class seem to be down a grade each and I am unsure wether our teacher graded us too high to start off with or was the marking scheme strict in your opinion?
Yah that's my problem too with business and a few others in my class. We would be getting a1s all the time I say only two exams I got a b1 in and it dropped in the exams
Do you think it was your teacher beforehand or the exam itself?
I was the same as you I thought the exam was grand ! I will have to review my scripts and hopefully he will be free of not I know another teacher will come in with me !! It's hard to know who to blame !! M Monaghan can you help out! Tbh I didn't get a bad lc but when I saw I only got a b3 I started crying cause I put so much work into this subject
Did you think the business paper was difficult?
