    You get your exam papers remarked and they go down a grade? Would that be your new, official mark or can you choose between the new and the previous?

    I wouldn't mind having one or two of my papers for Edexcel (it seems a lot of people have had problems with them) but I'm worried about the risk of them being marked down.

    Thanks for your help .

    well, this happened at my school last year. a girl had her entire AS exam remarked, and she went down from a borderline A to a B. but it's your choice, and if you're not far off the next grade, then you may decide you have nothing to lose.

    The grades I got were:
    English Unit 1 - 59/90 (C)
    English Unit 2 - 48/120 (E)
    English Unit 3 - 59/90 (C)
    (D overall)

    History Unit 1 - 86/120 (B)
    History Unit 2 - 38/90 (E)
    History Unit 3 - 43/90 (E)
    (D overall)

    I might get the E grades remarked, but they could end up going down to a U, which I hope to God they don't.

    One of those exams that I got an E for, I know what I did wrong, but for the others...I felt they went alright.

    If you go down marks, you always take the higher mark.
