    Yes. You can only get a remark by requesting a copy of your transcript and spotting a mistake, which is annoying as you won't be able to gain 1-5 points due to subjective marking :/
    what the hell.....

    how is that fair...i know so many people who got remarks and their paper went up like 10 marks.

    How are examiners accurate? Some examiners even mark on the train!

    I've said this before but what about subjects like Eng. Lit and Politics where the markschemes are very poor and pretty much subjective in itself.
    This is what I'm saying? Because of the mark schemes and the reforms in mark schemes you won't be able to get it remarked by another examiner. One person might give you a B, the other might give you an A...

    Which board are you for chemistry? You can't be talking about AQA surely?
    OCR but I thought AQA grade boundaries are reasonable?

    Oddly happy about the fact AQA boundaries won't be released until tomorrow morning. Means I'll be able to get a bit of sleep instead of frantically analysing the grade boundaries -_-

    There was one in each exam which I think I aced + the 45 mark questions were quite generous, but the other two 15 markers I chose... :nope: Did you do the feminism and/or sustainability 15 marker?
    I can't even remember

    I did feminism i think ..i know i did the feminism 45 marker.

    Are edexcel boundaries normally high?

    Hi just looking for some advice. I have applied to Plymouth (my firm) to do Early Childhood studies. I need 280 points with a minimum of 160 from two A levels which would be two C's. I already have a Distinction* in my btec which is 140 points. I have seen it in clearing and don't think it is a very competitive course but am worried about the two a levels being C's, how likely is it to be to accepted with two D's, 40 points off what I need from the a levels but only 20 points off the overall amount I need????? Thank uuuu and gd luck eveyone!!!!!

    ahhh true, tbh. I'm trying to not worry and just tell myself I've got like, 4 U's, just so when I see my results my hopes don't get crushed lol. Basically I'm forcing myself to have REALLY REALLY LOW expectations. Heh.

    xD Last year I was 1 mark away from a grade boundary that would have meant I got into my firm in 2 different subjects, so of course one of them went up by 10 marks in a remark and I got to spend another year doing 2 more a levels.

    I swear the exam boards do their best to make students as stressed out as possible. Which idiot decided that grade boundaries should be posted the day before results?
