My teacher told me there was no point in resitting, even though I wanted to, as he knew my dislike for the lesson.
Is it too late for it to be remarked?
Reason is My school for some reason didn't give any of us a pin to access the results online and sent us the results through email. I got a B for Physics despite having a 89% average for my previous 4 papers.......
A for ICT
A* for Business Studies
I got an A* in every single mock exam paper I took.
It's my best subject, and the one I thought I would definitely get an A* in after the exam because it felt like it went well.
I got a B and a C in the two exam papers in June, which brought my overall grade down to a B :'(
Is it worth a resit? Or should I just leave it and move on? (I'm doing it for A level.)
worth a remark?
Edit: Requested a remark of one unit, will update once I get a response.
was expecting an A* in it as I had A* coursework.
THEN I see my number.. it's 172 which is an A - how far is this off an A*? And how do you get it remarked?!
Coursework re-marks can normally only be done if the subject teacher supports the idea and I think they have to check with all the students as well, as I think the whole class gets re-moderated (and then there's the question of the total cost which is in the hundreds). Coursework cannot be re-marked for an individual AFAIK.
And with any non-priority re-mark or re-sit query, ask your Exams Officer when school resumes, even if you have left the school.
Geographical enquiry - A* 57/60
Key Themes- A* 113/120
Sustainable Decision making- d 35/60 < I am 99.9% positive something has gone wrong here in the mock for this paper I got A* and I felt the exam went really well, students who sat foundation for the other papers managed to acheive c's and b's on this.
Is there any point in sending for a remark ???? In order to bring my grade too an A*
So my best subject is English (I was the only person in my year to get an A* in the my Language and Literature mocks) but I am really surprised to see that my only B was in English Lit. All my friends were shocked too as throughout the year I got A*s in all my coursework. According to the Edexcel grade-o-meter I'm just under the A grade (I'm probably 80% between the B and the A). Does anybody know how accurate the scale is?
Another thing is that English lit is the one subject in my school where more people got Bs than As (I go to a private school where Bs are the lowest that most people get). Is it possible that the same person marked all the scripts from my school and was being very harsh? Is it worth getting a remark? If the Edexcel grade-o-meter is accurate I'm probably 5 UMS marks (at the most) off an A in Lit and 2-3 UMS marks off an A* in language. I just don't want to waste my parents' money as they are struggling financially but if I go up (at least on the Lit) then they'll be happy.
