No, I got my A* just fine. Probably your school more than anything else.

I'm really angry with the History grade OCR gave me, I don't know how to get it remarked though.

I think the deadline for this is September 20th. You will need to speak to your history teacher to see if he/she supports your decision and the examinations officer will be able to request your exam paper to be sent to the school, so that you and your teacher can identify areas of weaknesse and discuss whether it is worth getting a remark. If you decide to, then your exams officer can request this for you. There is usually a fee though - I think it's £7.50 - which you may be expected to cover yourself. It could be worth it if you are very close to the next grade.
Best of luck with your decision.

I got a B, despite my teacher marking my course work as a comfortable A and predicting me A/A*

Predictions aren't everything (in fact they're quite stupid in my opinion) - maybe you didn't know the mark scheme properly or something like that. Also, an A in coursework makes it much more believable that you ended up with a B overall, whereas if you'd had an A* in coursework it may have made this a little dubious.
