    How long is the period in which a paper can be sent for a remark? I was 1 mark off an A in Eng Literature. Could I just wait and discuss it with my teacher when I go back to school on 5th Sep or would that be too late?

    What device are you using? If I remember correctly it seems to update earlier on a phone rather than a laptop etc, because I have the option for 2016! I can do it for you if necessary
    I've been using a laptop but ill try on my phone now! Thank you!

    Hi,
    For my Biology Exam my total was A but i was thinking to get it remarked..
    Controlled Assessment: 69 UMS = A
    B1= 72 UMS = A*
    B2= 72 UMS = A*
    B3= 68 UMS = A
    It's just so disappointing, do you think if i do a remark it will be possible to get A* overall as my total UMS was 281, and 288 is needed for an A*

    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..

    I believe English Language is 240 for an A and 270 for an A*, and 210 for a B, if we did the same paper.

    Hey guys, congrats to everyone for making it through your GCSEs!! I'm in year 10 (well 11 now) so this is me next year but in June I did sit one GCSE - edexcel statistics.

    I haven't got my results yet since my school was pretty uninformative when it comes to important things. Nothing was announced to me about results day so I assumed that going in to collect result was just a year 11 thing. :erm:

    Anyway.

    I'm trying to work out how many marks I'll need for an A/A*. The UMS and Raw mark thing confuses me so much, if someone could explain it, that would be lovely. I got 28/40 marks in my controlled assessment which equals 40 UMS. How do I work out from here how many marks I'll need for an A or A* or anything?

    The way I see it, A* = 180 UMS.
    180 - 40 = 140 UMS.
    140 UMS > 135 so I'll need the next one up which is 150 UMS which is equal to FULL MARKS.

    Someone please tell me I don't need full marks in this paper for an A* because I stupidly messed up my coursework. :please:

    (Sorry for the long post guys, this is my frustrated mind, thinking about this at 6 in the morning. :argh:)
