    Hi there,

    I had my paper remarked this june and my module mark went up by 2 UMS. However my overall grade is still a B. I wonder if AQA gave me a refund. I paid £70 for the college for the remark and they said they wouldn't give me a refund even though my mark has gone up. I don't know I'm in the right or wrong here. Please help.

    Well your college will get a refund, so there's no reason why you shouldn't.

    No you only get a refund if the grade increases.
    This is common to all of the awarding bodies
    It is stated here:

    You only get a refund if your overall grade changes. For example, I got my English paper remarked (an A grade) and it came back as a higher A which got me an A* overall, so I got a refund.

    only if your grade went up. You still got a B so it doesn't make a difference, bad decision to remark tbh £70:eek:

    Only if the grade goes up, not just UMS.

    It's in a sticky somewhere on here but I can't find it :/

    No they can't

    Never seen it written down but e.g. AQA receive about 7 million scripts every summer, so yeah unless you ask for them back (and there's a deadline for that too.......) I figure they get recycled.

    :sigh: all that knowledge wasted. Should've sent them to 3rd world countrys who can't afford education, that's a better use than destroying them.
