    Knowing virtually every school does edexcel for maths, it feels like we actually dodged a bullet doing OCR

    Yeah, on my Edexcel maths one, I only have the subject award A*, but no mms mark or raw mark. If you don't mind, could you send one from the edexcel board. Thank you

    !!! Because you're only 1 mark away - you can't possibly fall down to a B because that's 29 marks away so you've got nothing to lose! There must be an extra mark in the two papers somewhere.

    Look, if u get lucky u'll get an A* if for some reason you get marked down, you'll still have an A! IF I were you, I'd definitely go for the remark

    I anticipated that I had got 179 in the 2 papers after self marking! Turns out I acc got 183/200 :lol: so the examiners, I think, are more lenient than people imagine

    B is 64 marks away so I get you loooool and I see what you're saying but I honestly feel like I got my max marks n I bet when I start sixth form I wouldn't care and because I was so close to the a* the grammar school I want to enrol in has allowed me to take FM so mehhhhh /: and also it costs way too much money to get BOTH papers remarked when I can spend that money on make up ok lmao I'm f****** stupid i know I don't mind really my parents don't at all but i don't feel like it's really worth it ??

    I'm so iffy about it but honestly I ain't really fussed I feel like I should personally treasure the fact that I was a mark off an a* lol but I doubt it will get any higher BC when I self marked I thought I'd get around 163 and I got 169 so I see what u mean but idk my secondary school aren't really supportive and haven't even told me to remark :/ same for citizenship I was a ums off an a* but idc loooool

    Yeah, but just go for it, if you get marked down no one will look at your marks just the fact that you have an A will be looked at
