    If you search 'AQA UMS converter' on google and click the top link then you can find all of your raw marks from your UMS

    In case anyone missed the link to all the AQA A level question papers and mark schemes (along wit the examiner's reports) posted two days ago on the results day thread. Unless you don't remember your answers, it would be a good idea to have a look at the mark schemes if you are considering requesting remarks.

    Thanks a lot for this this link. Just checked the mark scheme for biol5. Was pretty shocked tht I got an E for unit 5 and an A for unit 4, as i thought unit 5 went really well especially because of the essay, so I will be asking for a remark from school and hopefully they'll allow me to have one. Got a B in bio overall

    I'm remarking my Units 4 and 5, I feel like something went wrong with the marking? As if they completely missed out the essay in unit 5 or something I did much worse than expected as in I've never gotten such low marks before in these papers so I feel like something is up considering I thought the papers went quite well...
    I am totally with you - achieved A*-B's all year in BIOL5, including A/A*s in both mock exams, one of which had a nearly an identical essay on to the actual exam. I ended up with an E which was only one mark off a U. It just seems really odd as I felt fairly confident after the exam and I'm usually good at gauging how well I've done. This cost me my predicted A grade in Biology For the other units I got 3A's and 2B's - surely this is an indication of wrong marking. Good luck with your marking reviews - I too have applied for one in BIOL5.

    Wow that is insane for you! Good to get a remark, it sounds something is definitely off and other people are experiencing this too, even for other subjects from AQA. Good luck for you too, you deserve much higher from the sounds of things!

    I went about it by learning a topic at a time (theory wise) reciting it to make sure that I knew it off the top of my head and then practicing how science works questions for that topic at vbio.weebly.com

    Thanks so much. By any chance do you have any AS notes as well as example essays that you've written for BIOL5 that you wouldn't mind sharing? It's just I want to know how an ideal essay is written. Your help is sincerely appreciated!

    For AS I revised using the CGP Revision Guides (they're in enough detail for AS) then practiced questions And I've got several example essays so I'll upload them to google drive and let you know x
