So i got my Sociology results on the 7th, I had a D in my Unit 3 Sociology paper.. all of the girls in my class had As or higher grades than they expected. I asked for my paper back because i knew i hadnt done as bad as a D. I then got my paper back and one of my teachers said it was very very harshly marked and it sounded like a very good B however, my other teacher told me the examiner was extremely generous for giving me a D, and said that should i had added one more case study and swapped the order of two of my paragraphs i could have had an A. I dont know if i should resit it or ask for a remark please help me!!
Overmarked and undermarked help!! watch

I think that you should take the constructive advice from your teacher and try to improve your exam technique and see where you went wrong to better yourself for the resit. Realistically if you do get your paper remarked it usually goes up or down by 1 or 2 marks. It is very rare for a paper to go from a D to an A. Bare in mind not just one examiner reads your paper. Mistakes are made but lots of people read your exam. Just try to forget about this and focus on your summer exams. Good luck!

Remark it and do it fast. What are you going to lose? You get your money back if it changes mark, and if it's that harshly marked you are guaranteed to get it back.
