    Personally I think the only reason for a remark should be that you did much worse than you expected and you think something dodgy has gone on with the marking, not just because you want an A! I was 3 marks off an A in AS English lit, so I know how annoying it is, but I'm confident it was marked fairly, not I'm not going to get anything remarked, I'm just going to try harder next year and maybe resit something in January.

    Are you AS or A2? If your an A2 student and you've got your place, there's no point. If your an AS student and you're that bothered about getting an A resit rather than remark - it's cheaper!

    I was not far off an A, but can't be bothered retaking it just for the sake of getting an A.

    It's unlikely to fall all the way past the B boundary - I'd go for it. You might lose marks though...
