    What is the UMS I need for an A in government + politics at AS. My board is edexcel.

    I got 96 in my unit 1 (GPO1) but only 52 in unit 2 (GPO2). Obviously im not happy about this so I have been calculating how close I was to the next grade. So I saw that 52% of 80 is 41.6 so lets say I got 41 marks and a D was 39. A C was 44. Is this worth a remark? will it bring up my UMS in any way? maybe not to a an A but perhaps put me in a position to not have to retake unit 2 next year?

    96 + 52 = 148 and an A is 160. IMHO, unless you honestly believe you did not deserve that grade I wouldn't go for a remark. They're costly and rarely change, and if they do its only minimal by 1-2 marks. If you haven't got anymore retakes next year, I'd say go for it as this unit won't require too much dedication if you work early at a steady pace. Hope this helps!
