    Yeah my history AS went from 56ums to 66ums after remark. I was still convinced that I should got at least a B though.
    I got my History AS remark back and imagine the horror on my face when the exams officer said "sorry this isn't the result your probably expecting.." having a heart attack thinking i'd lost marks, I found out that I didn't change, so that was a waste of £36

    After reading several horror stories how people have lost 10 marks or sometimes more on resits I thought of just running away from the exams officer and not knowing

    Yes I will resit it, although the only reason I wanted it remarked was because I wanted to write an A for UCAS, as i'm predicted an A* for it but I know admission officers will look at it and think hang on a second, this guy's only got a B for AS, but I don't know!

    What topics are you doing in history anyway?

    I was 6 UMS off an A in Edexcel AS maths.. in my raw mark i lost atleast 20 marks in C2, although i remember my exam went quite well and wasnt expecting to lose so many marks. I even had an A in C1 like 91 out of 100 so I cant see how ive dropped so sharply to a B. I am considering getting a remark done, although i dont know whether it will be useful and worth it. any suggestions?

    I wouldn't get a remark for maths normally just because it's being marked against the Mark scheme and it's quite clear if you get the marks or not. For essays it's different and can be up to the markers own interpretation. You may want to get the C2 script back to see where you've dropped those marks and work on them next time or go for a clerical check?
