    Hi again

    I've just realized I am 4 marks from a B in Business. Now I got 90/90 in BUS1 so BUS2 and BUS3 are the culprits. My question is, should I consider a remark, a resit or should I just concentrate on the A2 modules?
    Depends what grade you want at A-level. If you have your heart set on an A, it will be very difficult with a C at AS. Whether you get a remark or resit depends whether you thought you'd done better.

    How many remarks can you have done? and if you get a lower one, are you allowed to have the higher one back?

    I don't know about number of remarks, but if it comes back lower, that's it, so it's a risk. I think if you're not happy with a remark, you can appeal.

    Is that AS or A2? If it's A2 then ditto!

    You're thinking of resits.
    Is it possible to have an individual unit remarked? I.e. my speaking.

    and;

    "you must act quickly as requests must be submitted to the Exam Board within 7 days of the publication of results"

    is that right?? i cant ask my french teacher what to do before then

    Yep, you can have individual units remarked. Within 7 days??? Whoa, I didn't know that! I'm considering getting a history unit remarked but I won't see my teachers for 2 and a half weeks!
