    1 mark away from B in History and 2 marks away from A in French - should I get a remark in both of them?
    French isn't likely to change but history is definitely ! go for it

    Could you help me as well

    So I am pleased with my result overall as I got 4A* ,11As and 1B
    But I am seriously confused about English Language.

    So basically it says provisional on my Exam sheet.
    Apparently the AQA got our CA grade wrong which is now being sorted out.

    I did my exam in January and got
    UNIT 1: 89 UMS
    UNIT 2: 47 UMS
    UNIT 3: 110 UMS

    which adds upto 246 UMS which would have been an A

    Then I did a retake in the exam and unfortunately got lower this time and ended up with 82 UMS.
    Which adds up to 239 UMS which is a B, the same on my exam sheet.

    Did the AQA count my recent gcse or the higher one?
    What should I do now?
    I am really confused.
    Sorry for making it so long but I seriously need help.
    Your best mark should be cashed in
    i would go to your exams officer! - it should be an easy fix tbh

    but i would stress your exams officer until they get it done .... stress your headteacher as well .... its your A you deserved it!

    i would email them both now

    Aww... Sorry, but you will get there......someday!!! I have to go in for photos at my school too, but my schools in coleraine anyway so I don't have to miss my friends birthday party. But isn't it so cool we got chosen for photos because of our results I've been smiling all day! plus I'm thinking of changing my fourth choice for a level from theatre studies to geography so ill need to mention that tomorrow aswell :/ what did you get by the way? I got 6A*'s, 3A's and a B!
    Oh which school are you at? I've met ones from the Coleraine school (name eludes me). Haha it's good like, but I've enough history with photos that I'd be happy without! They're gonna have an individual one of me as "top achiever" too. Yay.

    Congrats on those results! I scraped, by 1 UMS, an A* in English Language, so I got 11A* overall. Really pleased.

    If it is the writing Unit I would definitely recommend it but reading your less likely to get 4 marks I think

    If it was the 2hr 15min English exam then it might be worth it because there was a lot of writing in that exam so marks could have been missed and it was out of 80 so 4 marks might be possible
