    I got a* in unit 1 and unit 3 but a b in unit 2. I thought unit 2 went a lot better than unit 1 and i didn't expect to get a b especially since the grade boundaries were lower in in unit 2. I need 10 raw marks for an a* in unit 2, should i remark the paper?

    Does anyone know how fast you find out about your marks if you go for a remark?

    You got 1A*, 4As, a B and a D. Plus an M (I am guessing a merit, did you do a BTEC?) and an X, which just seems ominous to me o.O If you are confused, ask the school to run you through how they came up with 6A*s, 2As, and it should walk you through your results

    Hmm, and if it goes down, although the exam officer at my school said so far they've all stayed the same :/

    It depends, if you are going to work hard then go for it! If you feel GCSE was very hard and depending on what your strengths/weaknesses you may have to invest a lot of time in A level and this takes the focus off other subjects. Personally, I was going to take it but decided against it (in favour of physics )

    Honestly, it's really up to you! I got the same mark as you but in english literature and if I had had the money, I probably would have got a remark as I too felt I did a lot better than my result. If you think it'll benefit you then go for it, but an A is great and won't hinder you in any way If potentially losing the money doesn't bother you then it's worth a shot!

    Since I failed my English GCSE (I got a D, cause it was WJEC), I have to retake my English in my new sixth form sch,but its not gonna be a GCSE, I found out I'm actually gonna do igcse English, looking at this now Im now wondering what's the whole point of doin this again? I mean in sec sch, I've been trying to work my ass of so that I could do the higher tier instead of the foundation tier, then I had the chance, but then I fck up real bad(I think that was because I was too slow,I'm the sort of person who likes to write in PROPER DETAIL, but its hard to get it all down in a short amount of time ) and I was forced to do the foundation in the final exam.
    ( the second reason might be because of my communication skills, in sixth form, there's loads of students in the centre it seems like everyone knows each other, I don't really talk and I just keep to myself,most of the day everyone's havering lunch with each other, I just sit there by myself just looking around.)


    I really don't won't to do the igcse since its deemed "easier" than gcse,thats proberbly why find other stundents with like a B or an A in igcse English, dammit, I'd rather do a subject that pays off when I put in he hard work than have it easy.

    Really? I thought the general consensus was that iGCSE was harder due to lack of coursework?

    Not sure where you heard that IGCSE was easier, but it's not. Pretty sure they're seen as harder tbh, there's just no coursework but the exams are harder I think.

    IGCSE is MUCH HARDER.
    You learn a lot of A level topics at IGCSE level.

    IGCSE is actually much, much harder. By universities it is considered AS standard of work. Some people actually don't do a-levels but only do IGCSEs and get into uni (My sister's boyfriend did that and got into Nottingham Uni with 5 IGCSEs and then just did a foundation year at the uni and is now in his last year of his engineering degree from Nottingham which is a very, very highly respected uni. Just so you know, in IGCSE eng lit, you can't your book into the exam, just to give you an idea of how much more difficult it is practically not just academically. So to sum up, IGCSEs are actually harder and more highly regarded than regular GCSEs.
