    Yo, I got A*A*A*A in Maths, FM, physics and Chem respectively with A* in maths 1 year early. I know it's like 8% of people who get an A* for each exam and whatever but am I like the most intelligent for 1 in a 1000 or 1 in 500 if you consider all people both those who do a levels and those who drop out beforehand? I'm not trying to be arrogant, just wandering

    I got my A2 results the other week. I came out with an A in my politics exam, even though throughout the year I've been getting A*s in all my practice papers. I thought the exams went pretty well, but got a B in my unit 3 and scraped a B in my unit 4. I didn't need an emergency remark because I still got into my firn. But could I still get a remark in it to see if it goes up or because I'm an A2 student is this not allowed?

    What are the grade boundaries? How many extra marks do you need to go up a grade? You cant ask for a remark without your teachers' support. The first thing to do is get you paper back and look at it against the mark scheme with your teacher. The rules on remarks have changed this year. You cant just throw money at it - this disadvantages those who cant afford the remark cost.

    Overall I need 11 UMS to get an A*. The difficult thing is, is that my teacher has left this year to another school, I guess I could speak to another teacher as she taught politics a few years ago. I'll speak to my parents and discuss it. Thanks😊

    It's a lot of UMS to go up, but if you're pretty sure it won't drop you down a grade then why not give it a go! (If you can afford to remark) Otherwise you'll always be wondering what if.

    Nobody here can tell you - it's for your school/teachers to decide.

    If my school was anything to go by, your predicted grades would be ABB and would not be up for discussion*
