    Hi,

    I really need ur point of view. I did AS Physics (Edexcel) last yr and got an A (280/300). This January i sat the Unit 4 paper. I found it quite good, i thought i would get an A (or B in the worst case)
    However, when i got my results slip it was 58/90 which is C! I was very shocked & upset. I'm sure i didnt do THAT bad. There must b something wrong.

    Do u think i should send a re-mark? Or just do it again? :confused:
    Do u have any idea how long it takes to get back the remark?

    I'm just sooooo upset

    Pls help
    Thanx

    Just redo the paper in the summer is my advice...cos you're going to need to know all the unit 4 stuff anyway in case it comes up in the synoptic 6 paper. So doing the paper again will probably aid your revision for the summer exams. Also...it's only one more paper that you sit along with unit 5...so it shouldn't affect your other exams at all.

    PS. Cheer up....it's not that bad!!

    Ask at your school as they will know you well and can advise you better. Personally i would order a re-mark if you really think you have done better than you have,thats what i'm doing in stats, but saying that you should really put yourself down for a resit as well as you don't want to find out that you did just not do as well as you thought and not be able to do it again. Good luck though.
