    If I ask for my paper back and it takes say 4 weeks to come back
    Will that time be too late to ask for it to be remarked?

    (Did anyone else have strange/annoying OCR results :confused: )

    Thanks for your time

    The deadline for remarking is April 12, so I suggest that you order your paper back. If you order a copy of a paper back, it varies how long it takes to get to you. It can take 2 hours (the paper is sent to your school online) or it can take up to 2 weeks (if sent by post). If you live outside the UK and it is sent by post, then it could take longer.

    I thought you had to remark it first and then they send it back to you. Or?

    Do NOT ask for the original script. If you ask for this then you cannot apply for a remark.

    Ask for a remark and AT THE SAME TIME ask for a Photocopy of your script. The photocopy is just as good. You and your teacher can look over the answes and thieer marks. Most teachers have access to papers almost right after the exam.

    I know in my college the lecturers get the paper within an hour of the end of the exam (uk exam boards not edexcel which conduct round the world)

    hope this helps. Let us know how it goes.
