    Yeah, £36! (£18 each) - pretty ridiculous! Don't tell me you didn't have to pay...?
    I did as well. But I paid £12 for mine.
    What board are you with?

    Get it remarked. Seems to me that if your right on the boundary and you have it redone, they just push it up anyway. I've never known someone's mark not go up from a remark :lol:.
    I had a chemistry paper remarked and it got deducted 10 UMS marks.

    It does matter... for example if I got a B in chemistry and I need an A to do dentistry then I need to see how many raw marks/ums I need extra to pull my grade up in the second module... for me anyway, if its the end of your exams and you got an A... you got an A, who cares about UMS at that stage.
    The emboldened text highlights the issue that I was specifically targetting with my initial comment. If one attains an A grade (at AS) then it should not hold any significance what UMS mark was attained. It is utterly preposterous.

    ouch

    this is what puts me off remarking.

    one of my papers that i got remarked stayed the exact same - there goes my £44...

    Im actually ****ing myself. The thing about A-levels, you may feel you did really well and have a poor mark while on the other hand you feel you did bad, then you come out with a surprising mark. A-levels are so bookey.

    I need BBC/280 points for Politics at Hull with a B being in Politics. Sounds easy enough but I got D's in my two Politics exams yet A's in my other subjects (Law and English Lit)! I think I'd probably die if my offer was AAB, I'd have no chance of going to Uni lol. I just really can't wait for summer exams to be over, I've never been so stressed about anything in my life!

    Learn to relax and study whenever you feel like it. Trust me, from personal experience I find that once you really want to do well you understand everything like clockwerk. My personal goal is A*A*A*. I've already got 2 A*'s and hoping for the third one in May. This is coming from a guy who got D's for all papers in the first AS exam. Just dont get stressed out.

    I got CDD in my AS year so I'd say I've already done a pretty good turnaround - I resat my English Lit AS from a D and got it up to 114/120. I actually think it may have been misinterpretation of the essay questions for politics and I didn't realise what I really needed to put in, so I guess past papers will help there. Congratulations on going from all D's to A*'s though, that's amazing! I'll try not to get too stressed and just focus

    Heyyy, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on EMPAs (SCIENCE). Sorry, that this may be out of the discussion, but I suspected most people here would be in A2. I think I did quite crap in them :/....My theory grade for unit 1 is good though...Any advice?

    Thanks!
