    I got 90/90 in PYA4, and a decent mark in my coursework... But I got 'U' in the synoptic unit. I still met my uni offer, but would it be worth doing the synoptic unit again and getting it up to an 'A'? Or am I wasting my time?

    The only thing I'm thinking is that I may need it in the future [I'm still unsure about the degree I'm doing].

    I'd get it remarked if I were you, £37 it'll cost, but if it pushes you to an A, it's worth it.

    ^^ What's the chance that they'll find 8 marks extra though? =/ and if they remark it, do I have to accept the B-grade or can I still resit it?

    It must be the curse of the number 8... Last year I missed an A in biology by 8 marks too!

    Even if they only find one extra mark? Or if it goes up an entire grade?

    Okay, thank you.

    Okay, thank you.
    It's if it's changed at all, I believe.

    I thought the deadline for AQA was the 20th of September.
    Also for AQA, from what I can make out on the website, they only refund you if it goes up a grade.
    8 marks is pretty unlikely to be honest, perhaps resit?

    EDIT: As you may see from my sig, I am 4 marks off an A in English, which is bloody annoying. I'm going to resit a couple of the papers rather than have it remarked. That's how unlikely it seems to me that they'll change it by more than a couple of marks. Remember that it can just as easily go down through a remark.

    Yeh, I think 8 marks is highly unlikely too... considering I completely messed it up, they must have marked it quite generously [I was hungover and couldn't concentrate... kept having to leave the hall to throw up and was about 15-mins late for the exam. Needless to say I won't be doing that again!].

    Go to your sixth form/college's examination centre, and tell them the paper that you want to be remarked. Though I think some schools require your teacher to check a photocopy of your paper to make sure that you are going to benefit from having it remarked... Maybe the ones who pay for it?

    ? How do I go about rejecting a grade... Can I just resit the synoptic unit or do I have to do them all all over again? And do I need my lecturer's permission?

    Good question... I have no idea =/ Our college doesn't give us proper slips of paper with all the conversions on, everybody's grades are just written up on boards in the hall! I got 472/600, and apparentely I needed 480.

    Yeah that's ums marks so it isn't actually 8 marks, its about 3 or 4 raw marks you missed it by I would think.
