    In RS I got 86.5% In French I got 87.33 % In geography I got 87.75% are these exams worth remarking? I have got 5A*s so far, and I would be really pleased to have 8A*s I am looking to do medicine in the future. Oh btw, is it just me or has AQA been reaaaaaalllyy harsh when marking the coursework this year?
    RS is definitely worth it, Geography is probably worth it, French tends to be well marked but since it's so close to the boundary, go for it. Well done for the 5A* And coursework is always harshly marked, the exam boards hate us

    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
    Remark any subjects in which:

    -Marking is subjective (i.e. DON'T remark maths, and sciences are probably also not worth it)
    -She honestly believes that she did a bit better than it says
    -It's not too close to the B boundary
    -There's one module, for instance, that's quite a bit lower than the others so is an obvious candidate for remarking.

    Congratulations to your sister, those are great grades, and good luck for remarking

    Congratulations about your results! And with history our school has the EXACT same problem - so many people got marked down for edexcel A - my friend, who's fantastic at history, got 100% on two of the units, 90% on the third and 60% on the fourth which pulled her down to an A, she's getting a remark

    Yes but you'll need very good AS level results to get an offer and you'll need to Chemistry and Biology
