    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.
    That's really annoying. Does the clerical check not make sure that the right results for the coursework were submitted?

    You should. History is very easy to get more remark marks in than other subjects. And as long as you're not less than 10 marks (UMS) from decreasing a grade then go for it All the best of luck!

    I posted yesterday, but should thought I should add this:

    Out of 112 students in year 11 at my school, I was the only one to achieve an A* in English Literature.

    As pleased as I am with 197/200 (180 for an A*) I am shocked at how the school has performed as a whole.

    I ask, is this concerning (I think it is!) and roughly what proportion/how many achieved an A* in Lit at your school?

    UMS boundaries are always the same. You need 90% for an A*, 80% for an A, 70% for a B etc. So in terms of UMS, you needed 180/200 for an A*.

    You can find raw mark boundaries here: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...-JUNE-2013.PDF

    Hi, my sister got 10 As which is good but annoying because all the UMS scores were in the 80s and 6 of the subjects were 87% or above. Is it worth getting a re-mark on all or any

    Yes some subjects may be worth a remark. I've been saying this a lot recently but I think its true that marks can go up fairly significantly with humanities such as English which are very subjectively marked.

    I was in the same position with R.S last year and a remark really payed off . Hope I was of some help

    We got 100% A*-B in Lit at our school, and quite a few A*. But we have a fantastic English department (I somehow managed full UMS which I would not have been able to do with a different teacher). Our problem subjects were English Language and History. I think only a couple of people got A* in history in our year of 100...

    It would seem quite concerning, but Language is more important than Literature at GCSE to unis. Are we talking 'most people getting As and Bs' or 'most people getting Ds and Es'?

    At least twenty people, including myself. We did AQA, by the way.
