    1 UMS off an A* in RS, worth sending for a remark?
    Probably.

    Your RE grade is never actually going to impact your life from now on. Chalk it up to experience and move on.

    With regards to chemistry, you need to pick up your grades before making any hasty decisions. If it is only a few UMS off then get it remarked, but if not an A is more than a respectable grade.

    I promise you, GCSE grades are of really minimal importance when it comes to uni admissions.

    turns out i got 100 ums and 94 ums in Unit 3 and 2 respectively, so i don't need to resit chemistry!

    I'm new here and I needed some advice on A levels, My school won't let me do them as I passed but didn't get the requirements, I'm confused now and left in limbo. Where on this forum can I get advice? OR is it a schooling matter? Confused...

    Thanks.

    It's more something you need to speak to your school about. If they're very strict on their requirements, then you may have to look into alternative colleges where you can go to do your A Levels.

    Edexcel ICT - Got a grade D my sheet says 119 mark equivalent. According to Exexcel 120 was a C, so i got 1 mark off of a grade C.

    Is ICT controlled assessments something you can ask for a remark of?

    I got a B last year in the written exam but no where on my sheet is this showing.

    I'm really confused about november resits and the terminal rule.

    All websites (edexcel, ofqual) say that in November 2013 I can resit English and English Language, but does that include English Literature?

    Also, to get my mark changed, do I need to take 40% or more?

    And do they take the best grade?

    Hi, I have just recieved my results for my GCSE Maths results. I'm absolutley gutted. I'm in Year 10 and before the Summer we took Maths exams to save us having to take them in Year 11, however, I got a really bad grade and have got really dispodent with myself.

    I really blame the terrible teacher I had, but I also think I was a little bit cocky about it. Can anybody give me some advice on this?
    Thanks

    I'm afraid I'm not sure, someone else will hopefully see your post and know the answers though!
    Remember your school and teachers should also be able to give you advice on this.

    It sounds like you've just got to learn from your mistakes and retake it. Good luck, and don't worry, it's not the end of the world!

    It's not impossible, and well done on those great results! Check out the GCSE medicine requirements page.

    After about an hour of searching I found what I needed

    You can't sit English Literature in November 2013. Only English Language.

    I hate Ofqual and all of these exam boards that make necessary information so ****ing hard to find.

    At least you found the answer in the end, instead of not knowing at all

    Sorry to hear that.

    English is marked subjectively, so it's not rare for marks to change. 5 marks is a fair amount though. However, because a C grade is very important to achieve, I think it may be a good idea to go ahead with a remark and see what happens. I suggest talking to your teachers also to see what they suggest.

    I've moved your post into this thread. Also have a read of the OP and see if that's of any use.

    As Ecosse said above, look into a remark :yep: It is rare, however, for marks to change in maths as they're usually marked very accurately (although it's not impossible for marks to change). Are you taking maths for A-Level? If so, you may as well get a remark and hope for the best. If not, I'd just leave it - an A is still a fantastic grade!

    I was 1 UMS off an A* in physics and 1 UMS off an A in IT. Worth sending both off for remarking?

    Also was 3 UMS off an A in history, is it worth trying with this or not?
