    I'm sorry to hear :/ I'm quite disappointed too but as I always get told, we have a second chance! I wish you all the best :hugs:
    Thank you I think these marks were like a wake up call to do better in June, I don't know but I believe everything happen for a reason so I just have to work harder. I wish you all the best as well!! I am getting my C34 and chemistry paper to see where I went wrong, I think you should too for physics

    I'm very sad with my Physics results :
    P4 103/120
    P5 112/120
    P6 50/60
    sum= 265/300 when I need 270/300 for an A* (my cambridge offer)
    What would you do if you were me ?
    Is it true that once you resit a module the mark you previously got is cancelled ?
    If yes then I'd better only resit P4 and try for a 108/120.
    If not I'll have this unit remarked (I only need 2 row marks for the 108/120) ,otherwise remarking won't make any sense since it will be cancelled.
    PLEASE HELP ME

    I totally didn't get the marks I wanted
    C34 - 113/120 A ( 2 marks off an A*, I am really pissed off) and i think i am going to repeat it
    M1 - 62/75 A ( I think I deserve it because I messed up a whole 11 marker question)
    Chemistry unit 4 - 64/90 C (3 marks off for a B) but still I was expecting a low A or high B because I lost 7 marks for not completeing a question and I was 90% sure about the rest of the exam so going to remark
    You are like the 4th person I know who said they were expecting low A and are sure about their exam for Unit 4 chem to go well and they'll be rechecking the paper. Coincidence? I think not

    You can resit and if you get a better mark then it is the better mark that counts towards your A-Level.

    What if your mark is worse ? Can you keep the one you previously had?

    Yes. The best mark between the two sessions counts towards your overall grade.

    Well I just don't know what to say but that I'll be getting the paper, see where I went wrong and study harder next time so I'll be 100% not 90% sure

    This is the bit you want from the IAL Specification (page 83):

    "The best available result for each contributing unit will
    count towards the final grade."

    Can students resit International Advanced Level units before certification?

    Yes. Where an International Advanced Level unit is taken more than once by a student, the better result of the last two attempts will be used for the qualification award. A level units from 2013 or before will not be counted.

    Remark. If your mark doesn't improve, resit. It's so close, 5 UMS is like 2-3 raw!

    Thank you so much all of you that proves that British Council in my country is not well informed I guess .
    So I think the best choice is to resit them all (P4,P5,P6) and keep the best grades .
    If I have one unit remarked can I still sit it in June? I think/hope yes.

    I know that's why I'm so frustrated . I think I'll do what you say a combination of remark /resit.
    The deadline for registration is 6/3 (before the remark date) ,but registration won't change a thing if my raw mark increases by 2

    You can register for the unit and recheck as well. If it improves when you recheck, then fair - you'll just be absent in June

    Just checking -- does paying for access to script include access to the mark scheme as well?
