    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
    thanks for the reassurance! I do only need 1 mark so if I do get it I think il instantly have forgotten the wait

    My Aqa history went up 3 UMS to an A*!! Definitely worth going for a remark, even though I was told that history remarks at our school had never gone up before!:-)

    I took my science GCSE a year early and was the only one in my school to do so as the rest dropped out.
    I really wasn't ready for exams and I just didn't prepare as well as I should have, it just felt like a mock really.

    This year I've decided I want to do medicine and I need an A/A*. I got a B( one mark off an A) already sent for remarking.

    Should I re-sit?
    If I re-sit and do worse, will I keep my worse grade?
    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    You can resit, if you want. If you do worse, you will keep your best grade, and it's perfectly acceptable to say that you got the better grade. However, you do have to declare all certificated grades when you apply to university, so keep that in mind too.

    Thankyou, will they look upon GCSE resist negatively?! I thought it was A-level resits most rejected?

    I wouldn't think so, especially if you did better. If you didn't perform better, then maybe.

    And that is correct - A Level resits tend to be condemned more, in comparison to GCSE resits.
