    20 UMS is insane!!

    Brother:

    AS Biology (Edexcel), needed 1 for an A, went up 2.

    AS Chemistry (AQA), needed 5 for an A, went up 3.

    Chem was never very likely, so fairly happy. Needs to work harder for A2!!!
    Are these the new spec AS exams?

    Also, which papers did you remark?

    Did anyone do Religious Studies RST4A (Philosophy)? I was predicted an A* but got a U(!!!) despite writing over 12 pages in my exam. I got my remark back as unchanged. How likely is it that it will improve if I choose to appeal?

    What exam board/unit was it?
    AQA, I got all of my A2 exams remarked. My unit 5 went down by 2UMS but my EMPA went up by 4 so overall it got me the A*.

    Has anyone had an edexcel non priority remark back yet? If so how long did it take?
    Also has anyone remarked Edexcel A2 biology this year? I'm considering getting a remark but not sure if its better to send one or both A2 papers off as I'm 5UMS (2 raw marks) away from an A

    Too many, so not worth it. I don't think I've ever seen AQA A2 Chemistry change that much, even with more than 1 unit re-marked.
    Damn!
    I was 2 marks off an A* and I sent off the remark a week ago, still waiting for my remark but this makes me lose hope :/

    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?
    Man I'm 3 ums off an A* too!

    I sent my chem5 and chem6x off for a remark!

    2 damn marks!!!

    Has anyone else not got their priority remarks back? I admittedly sent my request off twenty minutes before the deadline, but it still hasn't come back yet....

    good luck to you ! mine came back unchanged, tbh I think because both of us are quite high scoring it's not too easy to find more marks i.e. the paper I got remarked was already at 53/60 and needed 55/60 for my A*. If I had like 40/60 then 2 marks more might be a lot more realistic, it's still possible though

    They say up to 30 days. This year they've been coming back in 1-6 days though they tend to get slower after term starts.

    AQA English Language, I was 1 UMS/1 raw mark off an A, remark came back as exactly the same mark so I missed out on my firm uni choice. Such a bad feeling
