    Hey guys! So I'm pretty happy with my grades but there's something odd about my AQA grades. I got a179 on my Economics & Literature papers and I need a 180 for an A*. I also got a 267 for Language but I need a 270 for an A*. Should I send it for remarking or is this an AQA strategy to keep student from JUST reaching that top mark? My friends haven't experienced this problem too much, if at all..

    Hi, I was 2 UMS off an a* in sociology for AQA and I got a priority remark however it came back exactly the same. I would go for the remark anyway because you don't want to have the regret later on and atleast this way you'll know and an A is still a great result so well done

    i have the same problem with media and geography with aqa... in geography i got a B which is well less then predicted as i got A in unit 1 B in unit 2 and my course work was dragged down to a C from an A* i was very angry. Well done

    I think that it is worth having a remark as you have achieved high A's. My son had 2 priority remarks......one resulted in a grade change, in his favour!
