    any 1 know how much it costs to get a paper remarked. I resat one of my psychology modules. At AS i got 82/105 which is a high B but this time round i got 67/120 a low C. I was very surprised at this mark as I am predicted to get an A in psychology and it is the subject I am goin 2 do at uni. D'u think i shud ask for it to be remarked... People I know who are a lot worse than me in psychology got better scores as well.

    most of the time when you get remarked u lose marks because they go over the entire paper much more thoroughly and do not give u the benifit of the doubt on marks they usually do.

    If you get the express marking i think it's about £30 a paper (for Edexcel)

    It may be worth re-sitting instead. It may be worth a re-mark - you never know. I had 3 maths papers re-marked last year although i almost didn't go through with it because Maths questions have a very clear answer and structure and i thought i may just waste £100 odd. I went through with the re-mark and got 3 marks (which actually turned out to be quite vital and got all my money back)

    With psychology the questions have a more open answer and i guess it really depends on your examiner marking the paper. You may as well go for a re-mark you haven't got that much to lose.

    So, if they're not happy with their current result they would re-sit anyway. So there is really more to gain than lose.

    You may not think there is much point in getting Maths re-marked and neither did i. But i can tell you it was worth it, i gained an extra 3 marks moving my A level maths up to a C - meaning i was offered an unconditional offer to start leeds university in September 2004.

    Maths papers often get upgraded because they've simply neglected to count the marks from a certain question, apparently. Either way, I'd recommend you don't get a remark, but request your paper back, and have your teacher look at it to see if he/she thinks it was mismarked.
