    Wow those are amazing grades and such a big change too. My science went up 7 marks (A) and my maths went up by 4 marks (A*)
    Well done! I just feel horrified by the inaccurate marking of the exam boards.

    All remarks successful:

    AQA English Language - 5 mark increase (6 neeed for grade change)

    AQA French - 12 mark increase (unit grade moved from B to A* and overall grade moved from A to A*)

    OCR Physics B - huge increase (grade went from A to A*)

    This just really shows the inconsistency in marking across all exam boards. I really do now lack faith in the system. The only exam board I have some trust in is Edexcel.
    Don't trust edexcel either

    They're usually fairly accurate for me, as it's all Maths and Further Maths with them: you can't really go too wrong with them.

    I had 63/85 which was 155/160 UMS. I went to 160 UMS, but in terms of raw marks, my mark went from 63/85 to 71/85. I needed a three mark increase. I'm overwhelmed by that result though, as I had chicken poxs on the day of that exam and I got the highest UMS percentage for this

    Hi,
    Thanks for running this thread. We paid to have my son's WJEC English Lang Paper 2 Unit 1 and Unit 2 papers remarked. He went up by 4 raw marks in Unit 1 and stayed the same in Unit 2, his overall grade went up to A*. Should we be expecting a refund of 2 remark fees or just 1?

    Both will be refunded as his overall grade changed
