    I think the marking this year has been so messed up.

    You're like me, but with history where mine is politics. Im not sure if I'll be happy or angry if my remark comes back much better...
    I'm not sure, I hope it does so I don't have to resit it but I'll be so annoyed cause they could have given me a better mark to begin with...

    I'm already going to be resitting 2 maths papers, even though I was getting A's in the past papers.

    If I have to resit politics too, bye bye social life.

    Can't be dealing with resits, I might end up doing more exams than I did this year and I will have dropped a subject... -_-

    I'll be doing 11 exams this year. 5 maths, 5 physics, 1 English.
    I think having a job where I worked both days at the weekend, and wasn't able to have study leave until after my exams started didn't help.

    I only did 9 exams this year... and I need an A* in English overall just to have at least one A*.

    I was happy about my A2 results A*AB and i got into my firm at Nottingham to study chemistry, however my history teacher was upset with my B,thinking i would get an A. He has offered to get the paper back and pay for a remark but im worried about dropping a grade. Humanities subjects can be quite subjective and if the grade drops will my place at uni be lost?

    You could, my brother did with his igcses and they went up. But it is only GCSE, most unis won't look at them. So it would be a waste of money when you already have a B

    Since you've already made it into your firm there really isn't much point in getting a remark for your history paper and risk dropping a grade. I mean what would you gain if you went up a grade?

    I'm remarking CHEM4 - just 4 raw marks from an A*! My medical school place depends on it. Are you going for a priority or standard remark?
    Where are you applying?

    For some of our Edexcel International GCSE subjects, more than one version of each exam paper was available this summer. Countries that are between 5 and 9 hours ahead of the UK will have used exam papers specific to that time-zone. These are indicated in the grade boundaries with an ‘R’ after the paper number.

    I wouldn't remark the physics because it could go down due to the long answer questions.

    Also, my brother got into a uni requesting AAA on CCD (not in clearing either) . You may still get a place for deferred entry, have you phoned up the uni and asked?
    I'm thinking of emailing UCL, but I'm confused about what I should say to them

    Just ask them if it's possible to hold your place for deferred entry (and give a valid reason! ... Money issues will probably be the best) ? They may be completely fine with it

    If not, ask about reapplying.

    You may be better phoning to get an instant response...

    Does your school call you when they get your remark back or does the exam board update the website? Obviously presuming I received my results online in the first place.
