Hiya, I've just got my AS results and got a B in Psychology A, AQA. I thought paper 1 went really well and only got 82 UMS (an A, 59/72 using the UMS converter) and 70 UMS on paper B which I thought was a bit more difficult (a B, 46/72).

I'm only 8 UMS / about 5 marks off averaging an A, which paper do you think I should get re-marked? I thought I would've done a lot better than I did in paper 1 but am also shocked that I only got 45 in paper 2 although it was harder.

Thank you in advance, hope everyone is pleased with theirs!

Also: do you think remarking paper B is really risky because I only have 70 UMS which is the borderline for a B (may be down-graded to a C)?

I also thought I did really well in paper 1 and thought I'd get an A but ended up achieving a C. I'm considering a remark but wanted to know if anyone else has experienced this in order to determine whether I actually did that bad or whether something has gone wrong with the marking.

I also achieved a B overall though.

Well done to you! I would opt to remark the first paper if I were you.

I thought I did pretty damn well on the unit 1 resit, but i got a D again. I got a B in unit 2 last year though.
I somehow managed to get a D this year for unit 4 and I have no idea how this is possible. I'm mind blown right now.

Yeah, quite a few people are saying that they felt that unit 1 didn't go well but didn't get good grades in it. Maybe they've not been marked so well :/

Get a photocopy of the script back show it to your teacher and see what they say, you have till the end of September to order a remark anyway, so its best to do that then waste money.

A few years ago i got one of my psychology papers remarked and went from a D to an B. Obviously not the norm but not unheard of.

Definitely get it remarked if you're that close! Think there may be an issue with the marking because so many people are confused with their paper 1 grade.

I was planning on dropping english lit too - so I'd be left with psychology, history & politics. I'm scared that keeping psych will affect my predicted grades for applying for university. 😩

How do you check your raw marks? Is there a link for UMS converter or something?

I want to do law, preferably at Birmingham. But their grade requirements are AAA & if I continue with psychology my predicted grades for UCAS will probably be ABC. Which is I think I might remark my psych papers to try & get my grades up 💭

I really want to do psychology at uni and I got my results back today and I found out I got a D overall in psychology.. gutted. I don't understand how, throughout the whole year I was getting As and Bs and I did several test papers beforehand and got As on all of them. Should I get it remarked? My grades today were CDD. Feel so horrible was truly expecting more from myself.
