    I got a B in history, 3 marks of an A.
    Got three C's in English Lan, Sociology and psychology, each with 139 ums/raw marks so I was one mark of a B in all three. Would it be worth retaking/remarking any of them?

    I would, I know there is the risk that the marks could go down but this could always be compensated for in A2 or by doing resits, whereas if you were to get remarks on all of them then there is a chance you can get a few more B's. if you are applying to uni- If this is the case your university application to the 5 different Universities will look better due to higher grades and they can only base it on your AS and personal statement until you get your final A- levels next year.

    I would say that it is worth getting them remarked on the basis that almost all universities just look at the grade rather than the ums and so if any of them get moved up then it will improve your application drastically. Also consider that the money spent on remarks is trivial compared to the amount of money university will cost you (and so is worth it if there is a chance of improving the degree that you get at the end) and that being essay subjects, rather than science ones, they are more likely to get the marks changed upon remarking.
