    So i got my edexcel results today and i really need an A* for my chemistry. My results for each unit are:
    Unit 4: 116/120
    Unit 5: 91/120
    Unit 6: 60/60 ( so i can't get this remarked )

    I'm basically 3 UMS away from an A*, and my dilemma is whether or not I should get it remarked? And whether I should remark my unit 4 paper?
    My fear is that if i were to just remark paper 5, like what if they give me 2 UMS higher, it still wouldn't be sufficient. But let's say I were to remark unit 4 and 5, whether or not they could possibly lower my UMS for paper 4 or something?
    please help! thank you in advanced.

    The question is, do you NEED it remarked? If yes for a university place, then do it! Get it remarked! If you have already got into university, then don't bother.

    However, they can only change the grades of the ones you have sent for remark. So your Unit 4 won't change if you don't send it off, regardless of whether you send unit 5 off or not
