    I got an E and was really shocked at it....

    Unit 1: 76
    Unit 2: 102
    Unit 3: 44
    Unit 4: 65
    Unit 5: 61
    Unit 6: 39

    I don't think it's really realistic...if you were 10-15UMS max off then it should be okay

    But anyway, if you have the money: you can give it a try - you have to take into account that if your mark don't move up, the examiners would keep your £50 >__<'

    Thanks

    yh i thought it might be unrealistic....
    its just that i've read ppl in a similar position as me getting an E for their last unit and getting it remarked to a C but i guess that was for economics
    and also the fact that I got an A for Maths and a B for Chemistry even though i revised harder for Biology than Maths is still quite mind blowing.....
    i was 9 marks of an A for chemistry any point for a remark??? LOL!!!!!
    and yh true i'm scared about loosing the £50.. its just that i've called back my unit 5 Bio paper ages ago so that I could give it in 2 a teacher 2 look at 2 check but my paper aint come back and the deadline 4 remark is this Tuseday.....
    So atm i'm a bit confused on what to..................

    if you think you have a chance then go for it!!
    take into account that biol5 has a written question at the end (worth 25 marks)...and it is subjective - so maybe you can pick up marks there?
    never lose hope - good luck in whatever you decide to do

    what examboard are you on for chemistry? if its ocr then dont remark - ive heard that ocr remarks never go up >.<

    Really but then again i guess OCR is a ridiculous exam board!!!!! lol..
    For Chemistry i'm with AQA.....
    ever since results day i've lost hope since i never got into my firm choice but even though i got into my 2nd It would be nice to see the grades that i've worked hard for 2 years......
    I just hope I'm making the right decsion about getting a remark cuz if it goes down to a D then i'm going to probs feel lyk crap for the rest of my life!!!! LOL!!!!
    Thankyou so much for you help though it means alot.......

    Oh i see~
    i know how you feel >.<
    but looking at your unit grades - it seems as though you got nearly all B/C's so...if you got a D in unit 5 - then it's worth a shot of a remark.
    No one knows it better than you: if you are suspicious and, think you should have got a higher grade, then go for it - submit in a remark

    and if youre worried about the mark going down - most of the times, remarks stay the same; or go up by a few UMS - they hardly go down

    what uni will you be going to?

    and you're very welcome!! I was in the same position as you last week so it's okay

    I wish Biology was lyk Maths... lol.....
    well I have 2 more days and I think I might go 4 the remark I really hope I wont regret it...
    After the Biol 5 exam I knew It wasn't going to be an A or a A*but i was hoping at least a low B bordering C!!!! or even a high D but defo not an E!!!!!
    I dnt suppose You have a copy of the paper to upload onto here?

    I'm going Hertfordshire University to study Biomedical Science.....
    Queen Mary was my 1st choice but Biology ruined my chances.....
    what uni and course are you doing???
    similar boat as me? what did u get for Biology?

    Well, if you do go for a remark - you might get a few more marks as the essay question is quite subjective - depends on who the examiner is
    No...I'm sorry, I don;t >.< But if you want the paper, when you go for a remark - the exam officer person would have it...she asked me whether i wanted the paper - and i was like no thanks: didnt want to remember what the exam was like >.<''

    Oh i see~ i was going to apply to Queen Mary to do biomed [you can transfer to med after you graduate, right?] but then i applied to pharmacy instead...hate biology LOL
    I'm going to Bath to do pharmacy

    I got an A for biology...after a remark [before i got a B] - but it only went up 2 marks...i think i only got it because of the essay question. I guess it just depends who marks it - because remeber, the mark scheme for scientific content dont allow you to give odd marks - just even ones? so maybe i got a few more marks there ^^

    Anyway, good luck for your remark - should you decide to go for it (:

    We coulda been buddies at Queen Mary if U liked Biology and if I was as good as you at Biology...... This subject clearly ruins lives!!!! LOL!!!!

    Yh I could transfer into Medicine depending if I get a gd 2:1 or 1st class which is not to likely 4 me cuz of the massive Biology content...
    I've decided to do a remark for Biol5 and possibly Chem5 (Still thinking about it...)
    Hopefully My grade changes i just really want what I worked hard for....... but then again everything happens for a reason so maybe I should just be happy with the grades I have Now..
    Well DOne on your A In Biology the subject is so hard so u must have a little bit of interest in Biology? lol...
    thankyou again hopefully in a months tym I wont be regretting my descion 2 go 4 a remark...

    when do you start uni at hertfordshire?
    and are you thinking to do medicine afterwards? I didn't apply for med this year because my AS levels weren't straight A's and i had no experience

    aww, you never know - so long as you work hard then you could get a 2:1
    What did you get in chemistry? Does it have HSW questions like biology? i haven;'t done AQA chem before so yeah :P we were on ocr chem for salters..lol

    nope...no interest in biology...i only got the A after like resits in every unit [well most :P]


    good luck on your remark!! lets just *fingers crossed* that you will get a nice examiner this time ^^
    and your remark in biology shouldnt take that long...i handed my remark in last monday...and got it back last friday...so i say - just expect like a week or something ^^

    Start Uni on the 26th September so next week....
    I'm not really excited 4 it cuz ya know.... lol.....
    when do you start?????

    Yh If I'm lucky enough to get good degree I was going to try out 4 Medicine...
    Are Ya looking to do the same 2???
    U would probs woulda got into Medicne now... I reckon Biology is seen harder than Chemistry nowadays cuz it is.... lol.....

    I got 471 points 4 chem so I got a B i was 9 marks off an A and 7 marks of an A in chem 5.... i doubt chem 5 would go up which is why I never put that in 4 a remark cuz their aint really any how science works questions so marking i reckon would be spot on their....

    Thanks 4 the good luck greeting..... I wish the examiner was nice enough to just add 33 marks and then I would get my B..... but i'm defo living in lala land if i pray 4 that!!!!! LOL!!!!!

    i start on the 2nd October...but freshers week starts this weekend xD

    lol yeah i agree!! biology has no logic...we just get bombarded with HSW questions; and we're expected to know what the answer is when you cant work it out >.<

    aww thats so close D:
    but if you get a good degree 2:1 - then they dont mind what you get in chem - if you decide to do medicine ^^
    and besides, a B in chem is good!!

    Hey! Did you have yours remarked then? What happened? I paid for mine the other day
    No, I'm where I wanted to be so seems like a waste of money for me for what is just an inconsequential grade...
