    Are they allowed to do that!? I'd be fuming tbh, that really takes the biscuit (since you can't say piss on tsr apparently ) So you really have no choice but to wait? Don't they release them online or something?

    Got a B! 1 UMS off an A though, which is 3 marks, would it be wise to remark or just resit it? Congratulations everyone! XX

    I got a C, but throughout the year I've been getting B's on the mocks and I was certain I had gotten a B overall. I'm gutted because I wanted a B so badly and it's what I'm hoping to study at University. When I spoke to my teacher she did say that I was about two marks off a B, and so I'm very unsure as to what I should do now?
    I don't want to re-sit, but I'm not sure if it'll be worth re-marking or how I would go about that seeing as my Psychology teacher didn't seem interested in trying to push for that (there were a lot of people in a queue behind me, I feel that it could be because they were trying to just move me along). I could try to make it up next year but I know that'll be a lot harder and I'm uncertain as to what to do.

    I would suggest getting a photocopy of your paper and then giving it to your teacher to look at. Then she can see if you've been marked too harshly and if so, get it remarked. The problem with getting a remark straight out is that if your UMS goes down, it's too late. By getting a photocopy you can judge if your UMS will go up or not. Hope this helps!

    With all due respect, Psychology only has a minimal degree of subjectivity and the large majority of questions are looking for very specific structure / points covered. I doubt the examiner has marked so incorrectly that you will go up to a B or an A - that would require a massive botch job! Perhaps you would be better off investing the money into resitting the exam next year?

    My ums for PSYA1 was 68 which is a c, so I did 68% of 72 to get a raw mark of 48.96? Is this correct or am I being a dullard? If it is If I roujd up I am 4 marks off an B (53) or 5 if its at 48.
    Should I ask for my paper to be remarked or is this too big a leap? D:
    If I ask for both then over all I would only need 3 marks total to get 70% of 144 which would be a B. (I used the same calculation as before)



    is it just 2 ums? 70% = 70 ums? since each exam is 100 ums.? idk

    Go on AQA UMS converter, you put a raw mark in for a certain paper in a certain year and it tells you the equivalent UMS, it doesn't have the option to put the UMS in so you'll have to do abit of guestimating until the result is 68 UMS

    I was more thinking that there was a computer error, I've gone a whole year of doing mocks and have recieved As consantantly. I think it's a bit odd that in 2 exams I thought I done really well on I received 2 Es, and on both papers I got the exact mark needed to get an E, any lower it would have been a U. I've got nothing to lose apart from £80 and it would put my mind at ease.

    Fair enough! If you believe in your ability and are certain a result simply must not be correct go with it. I am doing the exact same thing for another subject. Best of luck, I hope you get the outcome your hard work entitled you to.

    I believe the psychology marking may have gone a little wrong this year! It didn't go wrong for me because I got an A but at my college everyone who were getting Bs and As have got Ds and Es!!

    I got an A overall
    But did better in unit 2
    I got a B in unit 1 which was a shock because I found it so much easier than unit 2 I want to send it for a remark, as it may go up, and increase my chances of an A* next year
