worth remarking? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I got my my A level results yesterday and found out that I had done incredibly badly in A2 in comparison to AS in History. I was wondering if it was worth getting a remark and whether I could possibly get an A grade overall? To put this into context, I was predicted an A grade this year and in almost every mock exam I got at least a B grade and usually an A (marked by my History teacher who is renowned for harsh marking). Last year at AS I ended up getting an A in what is, in my opinion, my second best area (20th century Germany) but this year I got a C in my best area (Military History) and got a B overall for my A level. I managed to get into my firm choice university but I am still incredibly disappointed.

    My results:

    F964B History: Modern 1774-1975 085a

    F961A History: Medieval & early Modern 1035-164 075b


    F966B History: Modern 1789-1997 077c

    F965 History: Historical Interpretations & Investigations 047d

    The ones in bold are the possible remarks and I expected an A and C. I apologise if I left anything out or typed anything incorrectly.
