    Yeah it's a joke. Imagine losing your place only to get a remark, meet your offer, yet the uni has already filled the course

    Not particularly crazy, but a friend of mine's marks in an A-level English exam went from 38/96 to 58/96. U to a C.

    I think it'll be different this year as they aren't "remarking" the paper. I was thinking about sending mine off as I was only 3 UMS away from an A, even thought I got into my firm. I just don't know if it's worth it ahhh decisions

    I'm recently getting my A level Chemistry OCR A paper 2 remarked as I was 2 marks from an A. I just wanted to hear some crazy remark stories really.
    My History once went up by 2 grades because apparently halfway through the test I started numbering questions wrong. I don't think that'd apply to chemistry though

    I'm in a similar situation to you! Got 1 UMS off an A* in further maths although I'm into my firm. Might do it out of personal satisfaction I guess

    Maybe go for a foundation year first ? Alot of good universities are offering full course but with extra foundation year
    I'm already on a gap year and a foundation year would put me two years behind I'm hoping to do a BSc in Mathematics and use that as a pathway onto an MPhys degree

    Exactly! I've been getting the grade I want consistently throughout the year with mocks and stuff and I'd hate to jade a certificate with another grade on it knowing I can get better. Doing it purely for the reason that I don't have to think 'what if?' constantly
