    To anyone who read my previous post, do you think i'm being overly fussy/risky by sending everything for re-marking?
    I know maths is supposedly black and white but i thought that, with being so far into an A that, although it's possible i could go down in marks, it's less likely i'd go down in grades..?
    (My actual ums was 541 in maths but i didn't score 90 as an average on C3 and C4)
    Definitely ask for remarks! You'd regret it if you don't... and there will always be that "what if".
    I know of people who had more than 25 UMS scores added after a remark! :eek4: But that was something like Classics.

    I know that I should be satisfied and there are people a lot worse off than me; but I missed an A* in chem by 3 marks

    Would your original A-level certificate contain your total UMS scores? Would the med schools be able to see the scores as well?
    I know how you feel I missed A* in Maths by one mark,A* in Biology by one mark..............hopefully three A grades will be enough.

    I honestly feel like ****
    Maths - A (4marks from an A*)
    Biology - B (2 marks from an A)
    Chemistry - B (4 marks from an A)

    Obviously i'll remark but i'm worried about getting my hopes up to high..
    Really does suck doesn't it. like being a few UMS away, that's my whole ****ing life story, I know you're upset about it but out of the world of medicine and TSR, they're brilliant grades and i'd defo get them remarked as it makes a world of difference
