It can get lower. However, if you are way above the A/B boundary then it may be statistically very unlikely for it to do so.

Yeh i have 515ums now so its not going to go down 35 to a B on the remark. What do i need to do for a remark, do i do it myself or through my 6th form?

You have to do it through your 6th form.

Speak to your exams officer as they have to do the remark request for you. You will have to pay (around £36 a unit) and pick which unit you want remarking. You will also have to sign a form agreeing that your mark could go up, down or stay the same.

If you are only 3 ums off an A* its very very unlikely to drop you to a B, but its impossible to promise that.

I'm an exams officer btw
