What's the chance of an exam out of 80 in english language increasing by four marks in a remark?

EDIT: It increased by 13 after the remark. I got the A*

High, it is English after all. No definite answers. If you get a nice marker, maybe more. Better chance if you currently have a lowish grade. If you have 70, the chance is small.

Isn't Unit 1 Speaking and Listening? That would count as coursework or no?
And Unit 2 is the exam

UPDATE: Sorry messed it up.

I meant Unit 1 is the Exam and unit 2 is speaking and listening

You could. You'll never know. As long as your school pays, it isn't a problem.

i was getting 67+/80 in my last 3 english mocks, achieving very high A*s, and my final exam points equate to around 47/80 which is an average B. I felt as if the exam went as any other english exam would go. I got full marks in my coursework so don't even understand how i could've got 47. My school and I think that the marks for one of my questions was missed off. I've requested a priority copy so look at how/if i made any major errors and am very likely to request a remark, but have been wondering whether such clerical errors have been made in the past?

On your results paper you are likely to just be given your points score, not your marks. But these can be translated into marks. Eg in ENG1F, 99 points (half way between points boundaries) is going to be roughly 47 marks (half way between mark boundaries).

ENG1F...English Language exam boundaries are (in marks out of 80) C=53 D=42 E=32 F=22 G=12
These equate to points values of C=108 D=90 E=72 F=58 G=36

ENG03...English language coursework boundaries are (in marks out of 90) A*=75 A=68 B=61 C=54 D=42 E=30 F=19 G=8
These equate to points values of A*=108 A=96 B=84 C=72 D=60 E=48 F=36 G=24

The sum of your points from both units makes your final overall grade. These boundaries are (in points)...A*=270 A= 240 B=210 C=180 D=150 E=120 F=90 G=60


MATHS…i wasn’t sure if foundation only applied to your english or maths too so both foundation and higher are included here. I also didn’t know which specific course you were on, Mathematics, Mathematics B, or Mathematics (pilot), but these are the boundaries for the standard Mathematics course.

43601Foundation…Grade boundaries (in marks out of 54)C=42 D=34 E=27 F=20 G=13
These equate to points values ofC=48 D=40 E=32 F=24 G=16

43601Higher...Grade boundaries (in marks out of 54)A*=47 A=40 B=29 C=19 D=13
These equate to points values ofA*=72 A=64 B=56 C=48 D=40

43602Foundation...Grade boundaries (in marks out of 66)C=48 D=40 E=32 F=24 G=16
These equate to points values ofC=60 D=50 E=40 F=30 G=20

43602Higher...Grade boundaries (in marks out of 66)A*=50 A=40 B=30 C=21 D=15
These equate to points values ofA*=90 A= 80 B=70 C=60 D=50

43603Foundation...Grade boundaries (in marks out of 80)C=53 D=44 E=35 F=27 G=19
These equate to points values ofC=72 D=60 E=48 F=36 G=24

43603Higher...Grade boundaries (in marks out of 80)A*=67 A=55 B=40 C=25 D=21
These equate to points values ofA*=108 A=96 B=84 C=72 D=60

Your points from all 3 units are added to create you overall points score…A*=270 A=240 B=210 C=180 D=150 E=120 F=90 G=60.Hope this helps!

7 off English Lit, 3 off English Lang (both are currently an A, I'd like an A* as I want to study English at Uni) is it worth getting one or both remarked? Parents are happy to pay for it because they know how much it means to me, and in mocks and previous tests I got quite a few A*s. Considering contacting my teacher first, but I'm not sure.

I'm 5 marks off in english lit and I've gone for a remark so I think that it would be a good idea to get both of them remarked. However in english lit only send off one unit at a time since there are some cases where your marks increase in one paper and decrease in the other so your grade stays the same.

In Literature, I got A*s for both coursework and poetry, but barely scraped an A for novels (unit 1). I have no idea what happened as I can't really remember the exam, but should I just send off the unit 1 and see what happens?

I don't want to risk dropping to a B, but at the same time, I really feel like I was more than capable of getting an A*.

For language, it was Unit 1 that was the A too. I'll probably send that off since it's just 3 marks.

Since you are comfortably in the A boundary then it would be unlikely that a remark would drop you down so low as to get a B I think. If you feel like the exam went well then there is a good chance a remark would give you the grade you deserve
