    I've never had a remark...but the teachers in my school say it's normally only worth it if you only need to gain a coupla extra marks, so yo might want to...though it's quite expensive.

    In my opinion...you should just leave it...cos it really doesn't matter....but it's your choice.

    i only need 3 UMS marks so i want to at least try.
    How expensive? £10 - £18 would be ok i think

    ok i did the whole of AS Physics for the first time in January with Edexcel.

    My results were (ums):

    Physics 1: 79/90

    Physics 2: 90/90

    Physics 3: 120/120

    I know this might sound really arrogant but this is the first time i've ever done an english exam (i do scottish highers) but are my results actually that good. Literally everyone in my class got at least 85% on ums. I didn't actually get full marks on the exams but for some reason i've got full marks on 2 units on this funny ums thing.

    Are full marks in ums uncommom or do alot of people get this?

    94/100 (A) for psychology
    59/90 (C) in history

    I'm really annoyed at history, my damn teacher is making me retake it

    I feel like a fraud yet again, I really didn't deserve them & thought I'd seriously messed up the geog as I didn't really answer the question or include too many case studies...ah well, I'm not complaining!

    Yay, full marks for geog! I would love to get that! Last night @ parents evening i was told i am one of only three people who my teacher would put money on getting an A {in geog} for definite, although 15 people are predicted As. Ooh the pressure's on me now

    Hisory Unit1 (Russian Revolution) 66/180 = D
    Economics (The Market System) 68/90 = B
    Maths (D1) 60/100 = C

    I can't believe I did better in Maths than in History!! I really wasn't expecting to pass maths after getting a U in my mock, but I worked quite hard so I'm pleased It's also given me more confidence to apply for Economics at uni. I still think I'm gonna re-sit though. If I work reallly hard then I think I can get B+.
    I was very dissapointed by history as I thought I had done quite well at the time as well as the fact that I revised like hell for this!!! :mad: . Oh well, I'm definetly gonna re-sit.
    A B is what I was expecting in Economics, might possibly re-sit - not sure yet as it will mean sitting all 3 economic papers in one day. Although I would like to get an A in something

    English Lit. Modern Novel (resit) 90/90 -- I'm absolutely delighted as I got 66/90 last time, though I don't know how I got full marks, my essay in the exam wasn't that wonderful (as far as I evaluated it). It brings my AS EngLit to 291 which should mean it won't be too hard to get an A overall.

    Biology Unifying Concepts 112/120 -- delighted again
    Biology Central Concepts 68/90 -- not brilliant but even with this I should be able to get an A overall fairly comfortably.

    Overall I am very pleased
