Remark or resit?

    My question is aimed at my politics grade for AS, it is on the old AQA specification so i have the option to resit it at the end of next year. I did really well on the first paper and got 89 UMS which is 62 marks out of 80 however on paper 2 i only got a UMS of 62 which is only 45 marks which is way below what i usually get in my past papers. I usually get about 56/57 on average. I got a B overall.

    I have worked out that i need about 5 marks to get up to the A boundary overall so i was wondering if people thought it is worth remarking the paper. However i am sceptical because 5 marks it a large number of marks for a paper to go up, and also if people think it is a good idea to resit paper 2 at the next year.
    Thank you for any replies, hope your own results went well.
