    Hi, basically I got into my firm University (Royal Holloway) to do Maths. I got 277 UMS marks for Economics which gave me a C. I was 3 UMS marks away from a B grade which is like 2 marks in the exam. I am considering getting a paper remarked to try a get a B for economics. Do you personally think that it is worth it, or should I be happy I got into Uni and forget about trying to get a B for Eco? :confused:

    Clearly it's a personal thing. Your uni don't require it, so if you feel you deserve it and want it, I'd say go for it!

    Congratulations on getting a place. I wouldn't remark if I was in your position, unless you strongly feel that your C isn't deserved (i.e. you definitely did better in your exam), because remarks can go up or down. I know it's annoying being only a few marks off (if I had done just two UMS marks better in one of three exams, I would have had an A* instead of an A in Fmaths), but since you've been accepted, I'd save yourself the hassle of a remark, let it go and start focusing on the future. Good luck!
