    Overall I achieved 277ums marks for physics. Would it be worth getting a remark as I believe I was 3 marks away from achieving a B grade ? I only messed up on one exam (p7) that stopped me from getting a B
    When you say 3 marks are you talking about raw marks or UMS?

    Edit: I checked and you're talking about UMS - you could get a remark and hope that you get an extra couple of marks, however it's not likely in a subject like physics and you risk losing marks as well

    You can get them all remarked except for the coursework as your school would have to get everyones remarked

    You shouldn't get subjects like maths and science remarked, as they have strict markings. However, subjects like English it's better to get remarked if you want to, because the examiner may have marked it based on their judgement. For example, your answer may be good according to one person, but bad for another.

    However, with maths and science they have a set markscheme. You're either right or you are wrong. Talk to your teachers about what they think if you really want to get it remarked, as it's unlikely for your grade to change

    Thank you! My Sustainable exam in OCR geography, it was 2 UMS off an A*, and the overall geography qualification was 2 UMS off an A*. I thought it was the best exam out of all of them (all 16 gcse exams I did) but it didn't turn out to be, and also in the other geography exam (that I didn't finish) I got an A* and I was super confused.

    Ohh.. okay. I was thinking about getting my AQA Business Studies Unit 1 remarked, but then thought to myself that 9 UMS was extremely unlikely to obtain haha
