    First off im not bragging just asking out of curiosity so I took science and got an A overall however in my B2 C2 P2 paper which is out of 85 I got 51 which again i'm not bragging cant be, as I am consistent with my grades throughout the whole year which even my teacher was shocked, my ums was 131 but to get the A* I needed 151 ums I have looked at the mark scheme after all the exams were finished in June/ May and I got exactly the same predictions in all papers and coursework expect the 2s paper which I predicted 153 ums which brought my grade down what should I do?
    do you think such an error could be made?
    Again, im not bragging but my school are very unhelpful thanks

    and to add I also used additional pages could they not have been read?

    It's unlikely that a science paper remark would result in the sort of increase you need to get the A*. My feeling is that you should be very delighted with the A grade - a brilliant achievement.

    Let me know what you decide to do.

    Hi guys, in all 3 of my sciences I was 3 marks from an A*.
    I'm happy with an A grade but as I want to go into medicine I was really hoping for the A* grades and I'm unsure whether to get them remarked
    for chemistry I got 40 and need 43,to drop down to a B I would need to loose 5 marks
    for biology I got 30 and need 33,to drop down a grade I would need to loose 4 marks
    for physics I got 32 and need 36,this is 4 marks id need and I'm 9 marks away from a lower grade

    do you think any of these are worth remarking?? I'm pretty happy with 3 A's but if an A* was possible that would be great but I really do not want to drop down to a B,im confused!!
