Is it possible to ask for a remark in AS Biology coursework for Edexcel, although I currently just finished my A2 and I am awaiting results for A-Level?

I'm not sure if coursework can be remarked, exams papers, obviously. I think it can't be remarked because the teachers mark it first, then moderate amongst them, then edexcel moderates it, so its been thoroughly checked.

If your coursework mark is not accurate, the exam board WILL change the mark. This happens quite often. Even so, your mark may drop.

A personal experience: in gcse science the teachers some how marked all my coursework and gave me a grade C. When I got my results slip it actually went up to an A grade!

you could try emailing them, I think its: www.edexcel.org.uk
They're not very keen on replying, (from past experiences)

No - you're past the date for Enquiries After Results. If you look on the website, they give a timetable. All requests for re-marking have to be submitted within four weeks of initial notification of the results. http://www.aqa.org.uk/admin/p_results_faq.html#faq11

Once it's been certificated, the only option is to re-take (in January now).

No - I just gave their site because I had a handy reference. All the exam boards have the same dates (the rules are set by the QCA).
