    So for Unit 2 PHYA2 after the exam i actually thought that i did pretty well with 87% atleast. I used the unofficial markscheme and did a range with marking myself harshly and then marking myself not so harshly.

    I got 61 being the least and 66 being the most out of 70 marks.

    I dont know how i failed so badly?
    Im thinking of obtaining my paper and looking for myself, but until then any suggestion as to why i failed?

    I ended up with 78%

    Maybe you overestimated how well it went, or else everyone did unreal in the exam in that cas your mark may go down from like 85 to 78

    Well if thats the case i would seriousley recommend a re mark, and if it doesnt go up then ask for it back, and if that doesnt work and you need around 87 in that exam repeat

    Had the same kind of issue but with my math exams - looked into the unofficial markscheme, was really happy expecting around 80-90 UMS but only ended up scraping a B which was 71 UMS.

    Seriously not sure how this happened, either way im going for a remark

    How successful are remarks, i mean successful as in the mark/ums actually changing not whether it goes up or down.
