    Annoyingly i didn't get the grades i wanted. I'm thinking of sending my paper for a remark because it was a shock result not expected at all.

    I was just wondering, if i go for a re mark, will i still be able to enter for a re sit just in case my grade doesn't change/is downgraded?

    Also, is it possible to request my paper back before asking for a remark to see if i realistically have a chance of getting a better mark?

    The examining board is Edexcel.

    Thanks

    You can get a photo copy of the script, apply for a re-mark and resit You can't get the original script and a re-mark though, only photo copy. If you want the original then forget about a re-mark. However resitting is fine.
    I'm sorry to hear you had an unexpected result!
