    According to my head of sixth, A2 remarks very rarely go up and often go down.

    about £50, you get it refunded if the mark changes(unlikely).

    It might be worth it for arty subjects, but definately not for science and maths.

    Can you have something remarked then retake it if the remark isn't up to scratch?

    My Physics is 12 marks off an A, which is noting considering its out of 600. I did particularly bad in one paper (54/90 which is just a C) whereas i got an A in the supposedly more difficult synoptic. The other thing though is that the module I did badly in was part practical/part theory, which I did with a broken arm. Should I get it, and the second lowest remarked and hope it goes up?

    It might be £expensive!

    devilbunny - you might as well go for it, as you won't slip down to a C.

    *Just to note: its £40 for re-marking or £50 for priority remarking, also this is the price for per unit/paper

    12/600 seems like nothing but you need to remember each physics paper is 90 marks, so 12UMS equals approx 9 RAW marks out of a paper of 60. Finding 8 marks from one physics paper will never ever happen. (If they somehow found 14% extra on a paper, the marker should get done for gross misconduct or something!)
    If you decide to remark more than the one paper, it will cost you even more money which could be wasted. Its very unlikely that they will even find any marks. Ive seen 2 of my marked physics papers, and the marking was spot on since there isnt any scope to the answers; they are either right or wrong.

    I got 475/600 in edexcel physics, which is only 5 UMS of and A, but Im not going to bother remarking because I know it will just be a waste of money. It sucks, but thats life.
    But its ultimately up to you whether you want to go ahead with a remark.

    One of my brother's A levels went up *alot*

    He got an apology I think, they missed out a double page spread... :rolleyes:

    Always worth a remark if you are near to the next grade in my opinion...

    I'm getting two of my english papers remarked - i got a D in them both and A's in all other english modules across AS/A2. I know its expensive, but i think that it's worth a try if you feel disappointed in your grade. I'm only 6 marks off an A, and you never know, i could be lucky.

    Not liking people saying that A2 grades are unlikely to change though. I need hope!
