    Sorry no, I'm waiting on a unit 2 remark. Just out of curiosity, which poem section did you study? Amazing to go up 10 marks, gives me a bit more hope haha!

    We did relationships and I answered the The Farmer's Bride question, I genuinely thought I flopped that paper and rightly so I got a B (55/70) but my remark came back at 65/70 and 2 marks into A* LOL. Another boy in my class gained 9 marks and now were all waiting for the Unit 1s to come back! I thought I smashed that paper but only came out with a Mid A need 1 more mark so yeah there's always a chance!

    Wow well done!!! That fills me up with a lot of confidence as I was getting over 60/68 in all mocks and in the exam I somehow only got 45/68 in the final (66 UMS) and I just thought id been marked wrong the whole year! We both just need 1 mark now do let me know how your remark goes =D

    Yeah AQA is a piece of ***t exam board the fact that they even have to offer so many remarks shows their own distrust in their marking. My unit 2 came back in 2 weeks but its been over a month for unit 1 and its slowly drilling a hole in my brain! I read on some thread that a guys language paper went up 26 marks! 26!! How much weed have these examiners been smoking man

    I was a mark off an A* and did not get the mark. I got Unit 1 re-marked.

    However, it is now too late to send off the other paper. I wanted to send my Unit 2 paper in, but AQA took so long to get the other remark results back to me, that the deadline has now passed

    I didn't mean the deadline for students to send back papers for remarks, I meant the deadline for aqa to have it marked by as regulated by ofqual - I can't find it anywhere and my paper still hasn't come despite being over a month since I sent it. Im at 179 ums as well need 1 mark soooo disappointed to hear about you, im now very anxious and expecting a bad result.

    Oh right, ok, sorry. I read somewhere that it was sometime in November (I can't seem to find it again, but I read it somewhere on the AQA website). Don't worry about it, they do take a really long time, but you'll get it soon

    I know it is really upsetting. Don't worry, I'm sure you'll get the mark . Some people have gone up by a significant amount, so I'm sure you'll be fine too
