Dear AQA,
Please could you tell me how many cases there have been in 2016 of exam candidates being mistakenly recorded as being absent for a paper or papers, together with details of what grade they were initially given and what grade they were awarded after a re-mark.

Good Morning,
Thank you for your recent email within which you requested information
under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. In particular.

The terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 apply specifically to
public authorities. As AQA is not a public authority it is not subject to
the terms of this legislation and, as such, we do not have in place
mechanisms to respond to Freedom of Information requests. We are therefore
unable to provide you with the requested information.

I am sorry I could not be more helpful. 
Kind Regards,
AQA Customer Services
