    I got ACD at AS. I got an A in history, a C in politics, and a D in English Lit. I had an A in Unit 1 politics and a D in Unit 2, that's why it's low. I was two marks off of a B overall for politics - should I get a remark?

    Same for English - I was two marks off. Should I get a remark?

    If remarks go up I could end up with ABC.

    Also would I have a chance at unis such as:

    UEA ABB
    Essex ABB-BBB
    Kent ABB
    Oxford Brookes BBB

    ???

    Thanks

    If you're only a few marks off the next grade it's always worth a go, especially as there's little danger of you slipping a grade. Particularly seeing as they're essay based subjects and marking is more subjective it's definitely worth getting them remarked. I had one of my AS politics papers remarked last year and it went up 8%, so it does happen! I've just sent my german off to be remarked- I was 3ums off the next grade up- if it goes up, then great, if it doesn't, then the grade I have is secure enough that it shouldn't go down.

    I am not continuing Lit next year. I hate it. I will still get a remark, but I am going to do AS and A2 ICT in a year (fast track). If I asked to be predicted a B in AS and A2 ICT would I still have a chance at ABB universities?

    I'd be predicted ABB and I'd have a C/D in English Lit.

    Anyone know? Thanks
