    I want to order a remark from my Psychology examination, but I was wondering, whether it is possible to order such a remark from a particular paper (either 1/2/or 3). I'm missing only 1 point to get a higher grade.

    I heard that it is possible, but maybe these are only rumours. Moreover, I sent a request to my school to provide me with a transcript of my IB results that includes grades from all the subjects and papers. I know that my friends attending another IB school received such transcripts, while my school denied me such access. Do I truly have no right to see my grades from particular exams/papers?

    I received an email (after 1,5 month lol) saying that "Detailed results of the examinations are sent to the coordinator and the school does not provide them to their graduates." But that seems to be false, as other school provide such information to their students and even the coordinator of my school has sent a screenshot of detailed biology results to one of my friends.

    Please I need help as I am running short on time to sent the request for a remark.

    Hey, IB Alumni here.

    I didn't remark any papers, but I did get to see my final scores for subjects I didn't get 7s in (and only those, in case I wanted to remark). Seeing how your other friends received such transcripts as well, I'd assume there's no problem on the IBO's side, but rather the school's side. Unfortunately, the only way to sort this issue out is to talk to your school. Don't email if you don't have time. Go down to the office and speak to someone. If the coordinator sent results to your friend, there should be a justification why they refuse to show you your results. I must say, however, it is unclear from your post what kind of results you are looking for. I was only shown my final scores, and not a breakdown of each paper (as in P1, P2, P3). Maybe your school doesn't allow you to see the breakdown as well.

    I'm not sure, but my guess is that you have to remark all the Psychology papers you sat for, rather than remark just one. That sounds unlikely. Is the 1 point you are talking about an IB score point, or one mark on your paper? If it's just one mark, then the risk of you dropping a grade is extremely low, and there is no loss to order a remark (except for your money). There have been rare drops in grades even with that low risk though, so think it through before you decide. If you really need it, then no harm trying.

    All the best.
