    I paid yesterday for a priority re-mark and they submitted the request in front of me. I was told that Edexcel examiners re-mark online, so it typically comes back within a few days.
    Wait till next week. It could take up to 10 days.

    Does anyone know what ADV means on A Level results? I got the following result and have no idea what the letters mean:

    AQA - French ADV - A*
    Probably advanced (as in Advanced-Level)

    I already have most of what I need, just need to go and change my single bed sheets to doubles because of the accommodation I got other than that I'm pretty much packed and ready to go!
    Perhaps you could sort out a student bank account before you start now that you have your AS12?

    for my AS I got an A in sociology
    One mark off an A in psychology two marks off a B in English and I got a C and a U which makes an E in law which I do not understand so i basically want to remark 3 subjects when I go back. Great.

    Okay. But are there any reports of re-marks already? I wanted to know the implications of the new re-marking guidelines, in practice.

    Re-marks are going to take a couple more days.

    Has anyone got a remark back yet? If so, was there any change?

    You can as a private student. But bare in mind that it might clash with your end of year uni exams (which are mostly in May) and would you really want that added stress of essentially waiting for results day again.

    Your school must have been deadly efficient getting that sent off! It's going to be much harder to get changes this year.

    I'd generally advise not retaking modules at university because your finals are stressful enough that you don't really want the added stress and revision of a retake. Your first year results will be on your transcript (and for some courses and unis, will be part of your degree classification) so they're quite important to consider.

    why is it gna be harder to change this year? I got an A in one module and a U in the other which makes no sense at all!

    all I need is 6 UMs more to get a B overall

    I guess I'll wait and see. It would be nice to turn my B into an A or an A* by getting a better grade in that module though. I don't know if it's worth it or not.

    The remark criteria has changed this year, so remarks will no longer consider a different interpretation of the mark scheme as a valid reason to change your marks. They'll only change if there's an error by the original marker that explicitly doesn't follow the mark scheme.

    I know how you feel. It happened to me last year. AAU in maths (screw D1). C overall. But at least that was only for AS

    Personally I wouldn't but it is your decision. Did you get your firm?

    How does that work for the more subjective, essay-based subjects though?

    Surely what constitutes not following the mark scheme is in itself subjective?
