    What's remarked in AQA German? I know the coursework stuff is 60% of the final grade, but I'm not sure if it's just the exams that get remarked. I was 1 UMS off an A so I was a bit annoyed as I was hoping for an A!

    I'm still unsure whether I should bother with a remark; I got a C in drama (As in two units, a D in the third), and I was one UMS off a B. It's the only C I got, and I don't feel it reflects my ability in drama, but is there any point in remarkig?

    Hi ..could someone advise me re AQA Biology GCSE please?

    I want to study this at A level and should've got a B but my GCSE results were a C

    The unit grades were (1) 68/100 = grade C
    (2) 74/100 = grade B
    (3) 64/100 = grade C
    (4) 74/100 = grade B (ISA cant remark)

    Giving me a grand total of 279/400 = 1 ums mark off a B!!

    Should I get all 3 units marked again do you think or just units 1 and 3 C grades?

    Thanks in advance

    Yes! Vionar, you're an awesome actor, and you helped me, and I got a B in the performance unit (A overall), so 100% remark. I'm sure you got a very harsh examiner. Have you got a copy of your performance? You might want to request that and look over it before you remark though, so you appreciate the situation.

    My performance was pretty dreadful, I'm hoping it might go up just one mark, because it is very subjective, so that I don't have a C

    Go for the remark. It's unlikely that you'll drop. How far off from a B are you?

    I'd probably say just units 1 and 3 as they give you the most room for improvement, but it's really up to you and whether you'd be willing to pay for it

    You're more likely to get it if you do all 3, especially as it's not a very subjective subject, but it's completely up to you and paying for it I guess

    I was only 1 UMS mark off an A in Additional Science!!!!!!!
    I got a A in biology A in chem A in coursework and B in physics and somehow got a B overall!? I was thinking of getting my physics remarked even though its unlikely to go up. I don't think my chem will change as was lucky to get an A. Maybe my coursework may go up as i put a lot of time into it so would not have been shocked if i came out with an A* in that unit on results day. Which unit do you think i should get remarked?

    I'm 1 mark of an A* in my AQA English lit. I got full UMS in the books essay and obviously you can't remark the coursework (grr) so that leaves me with just the poetry that I could possibly get remarked. Obviously, I really want the A* but my poetry exam was a bit dodgy when I was writing it, I felt as though my mark would either be really high or really low. Do you think I should get a remark? Also, what are the chances of it going down to an overall B? Thanks

    Im so confused right now.

    Astronomy by Edexcel is 180/200 for an A* and I got 179. Does anyone know if it is worth the time (and money) to get this remarked?
    Also, French by Edexcel is 270/300 for an A* and once again, I fall short with 265. Anyone know if these two subjects are remarked leniently?

    Thanks

    p.s. Edexcel are messing with my future by the looks of things :l
