    That's as cheap as it gets, some other boards are more expensive.

    It is too late now. Remarks have to be requested in August not September :/ if you want to improve your marks I suggest retaking some units
    You can still do remarks sent mine off today. School cut off date is the 18th so would be a couple of days after.

    Thank you AQA for my remarks in English Literature
    A C to a C in A2 and a D to - who would have guessed it - a D in AS, by marks so incremental that not even my dog would consume them.

    It is wholly offensive that, despite full-marks in my coursework and As in my other exams, AQA have the audacity. Probably just trying to satisfy their quota or whatever. I refuse to accept it as I remember vividly what I had written but at least I have something to moan and feel indignant about. :unimpressed:

    OCR biology unit 4 remark, nothing changed :/
    I got full UMS in all of the exam units except for F214, in which I got a B, which I apparently deserved 😂 Oh well...

    Got 475/600 UMS in OCR A level biology, which is 2 raw marks from an A. My teacher insisted it wasn't worth remark due to reforms....

    Managed to get my teacher to 'send away for a re-mark' for him to tell me it went up by 3 UMS. I asked in which module it went up and he told me they don't tell you that.... is he telling the truth or is he not wanting to spend £45?

    if this is biology AS level then i believe he is right because for some reason they only give you your overall marks in new AS subjects now. However, for AQA i know it is possible to get someone from your school to log into e-AQA for free and use Enhanced Results Analysis to see your break down. Edexcel have a similar thing with resultsplus -- not sure about other exam boards.

    If you're talking UMS then it must be an unreformed subject as the new linear A levels don't have UMS. Either way, you can only apply for re-marks of individual papers so whoever ordered it must have known which paper they applied for. Ask your exam office - they will have done any ordering.

    Has anyone sent in their papers for remarking with the new system? if yes, how did your grades come back? Let me know!
    Hey guys,

    I got a C in A2 biology, having achieved an A (near full marks) in the EMPA, a B in biol4, and a U in biol5 (which obviously brought my marks down.) I'm 5 raw marks off an overall B, do you guys think it's worth it? I don't want to sacrifice my uni place if it somehow decreases to a D, lol.

    I'd check what's happened to it. None of our OCR re-marks this year have taken more than a few days.
