    Which exam season are you talking about? Re-marks can only be requested for about 6 weeks after the results come out. The only results you can currently get re-marked are the March GCSE results which came out today.

    Yes, you can just re-sit 1 science exam and if you do one better on the re-sit you would get a b.

    Remarks are definitely worth it. I was one mark away from an A* in my spanish and latin gcses, requested a remark and they both went up
    Obviously the most realistic for you is history, i would definitely get it remarked if I were you. Not so sure about the others... I was 4 marks away from an A* in my history and decided against it, but I kinda regret it now. Depends on how much of a gambler you are and how badly you want that higher grade!

    might as well! worse case scenario you drop a grade but this is unlikely if you are close to the upper boundary.

    Never. The papers will have long since been shredded.

    In one of my history papers I was one mark off an A* and I really regret not getting it remarked now but overall I can hopefully make up for it.

    If you've still got time and your only a few marks away then you should go for it.
