    Hey I sent off my entire psychology a level (all 4 units) on the 24th as a priority remark. Does this mean I will still get my remark by the 31st since that's 18 days since the 18th? Or will it be later because I didn't send it off on the 18th?

    It may be later - which exam board was it with? Why did you wait 6 days before applying? AQA say they will only get priority re-marks back by 31 August if they went in by (I think) 22 or 23 August.

    It was AQA :/ that's really annoying. My firm choice said if I got a B instead of C by the 31st, they would give me the place. I should have sent it off earlier but I was hesitant about getting the remark as i was close to a D, but also wanted to ask my subject teacher for advice but he took a while to get back to me. Also, there were some financial issues that conflicted with sending it off. just have to hope for the best. Thanks for the response.

    I have been getting good grades in psy all year (AQA A) and I was counting on it as my A* grade for Cambridge but I suddenly came out with a C in unit 3 which I just can't understand as I came out thinking it genuinely went very well. I've missed my Cambridge offer now so am desperately waiting for remarks:// hoping that they made an error in adding it up or something
    Got PSYA3 remarked was 2 marks off an A, it went down 2 marks!!

    yes i definitely do want the A.
    No but im taking a gap year and applying to medicine and if i dont get an A i shall have to retake it which will disrupt my gap year plans.
    I received it in the post this morning, but on the letter it said the 25th august.
    Good luck how many marks do you need?

    are you serious? i am stil waiting and my uni depends on this. i need 4 raw marks to get my firm offer. thanks
    yh i would say unit 4 is worth remarking if it means that you dont have to retake
    you also need to consider money side of things

    Is anyone doing post-remark appealing for results? I'm considering it but I don't know if it's worth it..
    (My remark came back exactly the same, but I think it's a mistake due to the way they "remark" in the new system and the fact that I was predicted an A/A* but got a D.)

    F324 went up by 4 ums so I have a B in chemistry now! No change in biology though 😥
    fk that's exactly what I need (4 ums in f324), how long did your remark take? I ordered mine 10 days ago and still haven't heard back :s 3 ums away from A* in chem but think it's impossible to go up by a number which isn't a multiple of 2 in f324, as 1 mark = 2 ums?

    I got my back last week! I went up two marks which was 4 ums so I think you're right. I got my paper back and the questions I got those two marks on were based on structure/ drawing. The first examiner marked it wrong based on incorrect structure but apparently this was not being tested. A similar thing may have happened with your paper, so good luck and I hope you get the A*!

    You will need support from a senior person in your school if you want to appeal. It is very expensive and there are only a tiny number of successful appeals each year. It is really massively unlikely that a D that comes back remarked as a D is really A/A* work.

    hopefully! they are taking their time giving mine back so maybe they have made changes lol I drew out a mechanism crossed it out and repeated underneath, so hopefully I can gain marks for that?
