    Stop complaining ! An A is good, and as "want2know" says, coursework is moderated to the same standard, nevertheless good luck if u decide to have a remark

    Hello everybody, i got my GCSE's and am so heepy - 4 A*s, 4 A's and 2 B's!

    I got an A in English Literature which i'm very pleased of - but i was only 3 marks away from an A*! My teacher marked my coursework as an A* and it has been changed to an A! I was wondering whther i should get the coursework remarked and the exams to see if i can get an A*! What do you think? And when is it the closing date for asking your GCSE to be remarked? I'm with OCR and i can't find anything on its website - much help would be very appreciated!!

    HEAD BOY
    i got exact same as you- 177/200 (3 off a*)) on ocr. probs worth a remark as it wont go down a grade but could go up.

    I'm not upset with my GCSE grade at all - i'm really happy!!
    It's just that i was so close, i don't see why there's anything wrong with a remark!

    Why so bothered about only getting an A in English Literature? I'd just leave it be, no huge injustice, had the same situation with English Lit (5 off A) and Economics (3 of A*, got a B in one of the exams!) but life goes on, it's my fault I didn't do enough work, or for the case of Lit, actually really bother with coursework, so I think kicks in the bum are a good and stolid reminder of what happens through indolence (for me at least!)
    I'm the same.
    I need a good kick up the bum sometimes!!

    Once you start your AS courses, you'll look beck at GCSEs and think 'pah'. So I don't really think a remark is worth the hassle tbh!

    I was thinking about getting my lit remarked because I got an A in my coursework, and didn't really think I screwed the exam that much. I don't know how far of I was though, and I'm not going to cry over a B :p:

    Re-marking isn't too much of a hassle, I'd say go for it you have nothing to lose.

    If I were you HEAD BOY, don't get a re-mark. A is a very good grade and people have different opinions when it comes to marking written essays like English. I thought I was going to get an A for English Literature because I thought the essays I wrote deserved that, but I got a B - nethertheless, I'm still pleased with the B grade.

    If you're 3 marks off an A* and you're continuing English next year surely it makes sense to get it remarked anyway?? Seeing as there's almost no chance it's going to drop to below an A? The next examiner might like your essay-style better than the first. Also sometimes they bump your mark up from an A to an A* if you do a damn good A-grade exam. £45 isn't that much, and your college/sixth form might pay for you.
