Should I get my History remarked?!

    So My overall grade in history was a B. I'm on the exam bored AQA and to break it down, History B Unit 1=62(c), history B unit 2= 59(c). However in my course work History B unit 3 it was 56 (A*). I was predicted to get an A/A* in History and my coursework was really good, and also I really felt as if the exams went quite well as there wasn't really anything on the two papers that I didn't know and I made sure I answered everything to the mark scheme eg. Putting examples, linking back to the question, writing all the answers in the right format. I'm just really shocked I got C's in the exams when a lot did a lot better so I was considering getting it remarked but I don't know much about the process or whether it's worth it? What if it just gets marked down even further? My college suggests a B or higher in subjects I want to take for a level and history is one of them and I have the requirements but I really feel as if I've done better than my results show. I didn't know whether to discuss this with my subject teacher or if that'll be too late by the time we go to sixth form.m please help, hope you all did well!!

    Hi there, sorry that your history result was not what you were expecting :console: .

    You can read about remarks in this thread Do you know how far away you were from a B? That would be good to know before you remark since, as you say, the mark can go down as well as up.

    Definitely speak to your teachers about it. Sooner rather than later (do you have their email addresses?), but there may still be time at enrolment or the very beginning of term.
