    Does anyone know if I get my AQA English Language remarked, will they remark the coursework or just the exam? In my speaking and listening and exam I was only 2 marks off an a* but I seriously don't knoq what went wronf with the reading and writing coursework mark. It was 96 ums, and my teacher, who used to be an examiner, gave quite low grades anyway for coursework but I still ended up getting in the A* band? so overall I did quite well, it's just the 96 ums which has brought my grade down to being 21 ums away from an A* is there any hope?

    You can't remark coursework unfortunately but calculate using the UMS converter if it is worth remarking your Unit 1 exam so that you possibly move up a grade.

    I got 6B and 4C. can I still be a doctor
    We've got a list of entry reqs. here, but due to the competition, the odds are against you. Best thing you can do is do your research, find the unis who don't place much weight on GCSEs, perform well in your A-levels, UKCAT, non-academics, and apply there.

    It's also worth thinking about alternate routes like GEM, if it's really what you want to do.

    Our school has a 45% pass rate and it was brand new so we didn't have many resources and gcse choices like English literature and the triple sciences great job yourself I'm proud of you

    What are you gonna do now?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Oh I see! Yeah same, not keen on the idea of being the 'guinea pigs' of many exams and things, but hey ho!
    Haha, thank-you, same!
    Do you mean now as in this week to celebrate or in terms of college/sixth form?

    They don't have a converter, I'm afraid.

    You both said different things! My problem is that on my writing and reading coursework, I was well into A* band in every piece so I don't understand why they gave me 96 UMS which is borderline A! That would have meant my work went down nearly 2 grades which isn't possible!

    Do the examiners not moderate the coursework again? It just seems really low for what I was predicted also.

    As Farhan96 said, you can't personally request for you coursework/controlled assessments to be remarked if they were originally marked by the teacher and then sent to the exam board for moderation. They can, however, be re-moderated at the discretion of your centre. It won't be just yours that will be re-moderated though, it will have to be the whole centre's marks.

    Those are really good results Get a C or above with the maths resit and you'll be able to get into a decent uni no problem, as long as you get the grades at AS.
    Thank you! I was really upset was I was predicted higher grades in applied and ICT and thought it would jepordise my uni places.
