    So - I just had my English Lit remark result back. Turns out my Modern Drama has gone up by 18 marks - from a C to an A* - and now my overall grade is an A*! Wow. That's my remark story I can say!
    Well done! English Lit can be a scary subject; it is so subjective! I got an A* this summer in lit and i didn't read any of the books! (Did OCR)

    Ah thanks! Shouldn't really be proud of it though...

    I did my exams in June 2016.

    I applied for my Economics papers to be remarked, I got 89 and I am a point away from an A*. The results came back a week ago, and my score did not change. Damn it that one mark, frustrating as hell.

    Does anyone know how long it takes for a paper to be remarked through AQA?

    How likely is it that I would pick marks up in history? I was 3 off the next grade thinking about sending 2 papers off but it's so expensive, I'm not sure what to do
