    Guys for ocr biology for f214 and f215 I scored a C and a D respectively but I scored around 90% overall at AS, revised and scored very high in my mocks (ie A*s) I was predicted an A*. Do you think it's worth getting my biology f215 remarked?

    definitely not - the chances of it changing 20 UMS are vanishingly small.

    I got a B in Eng Lang (WJEC) and a C in Eng Lit (AQA) although I was predicted, and getting, A*s in both all year. My college have told me not to bother asking for remarks as these exam boards are apparently not changing anyone's marks no matter how wrong they've got them?????
    That's my chance of applying to Oxford down the pan lol..
    its worth a try! i have seen remarks with these exam boards this year be successful!

    Had an Edexcel AS history module remarked. Was at 318 UMS, needing 320 for an A. Paper came back having gone up 10 UMS
    Can now apply to veterinary school this October with AAA which is crucial for resit candidates.

    I'm not saying it's impossible, just incredibly unlikely. I probably see the results of 200 re-marks a year and many years none goes up by that much.

    I think marks are much more likely to change in 'subjective subjects' such as English lit, history, business studies etc. than 'objective subjects' such as maths, physics, chemistry etc. where the marking is much more objective and margin for error slim.

    Got my re-mark back for AQA Physics PHYA5 (Astrophysics option) today. Went up by 8 UMS (3 raw marks) from 110/120 to 118/120, giving me an A* in Physics overall.

    Also got AQA Computing COMP3 re-marked, this one went up by 2 raw marks - leaving me 2 UMS (that is, 1 raw mark) off an A* in Computing.

    Sent off for both of these last Friday.

    I've sent both my Economics papers in for the review since I was 2 marks off an A. My sixth form said it'll take up to 30 days so I'm still waiting to hear back.

    The exam boards are meant to do them within 30 days. In practice Edexcel and OCR are generally turning them round in well under a week, sometimes within the day, AQA are taking 7-10 days, WJEC are pretty slow and CIE take forever. Don't know about CCEA.

    Hi guys. I scored 98.5% in my other three English modules, but in my last one I got 68%. After a remark it went up to 73%. When the script came back my teach still said it had marked unfairly. She then passed it around the department and they all agreed. She's going to get another examiner from another school to look at it, but everyone so far is saying the same thing.

    What should I do ?
