    for maths i was 5 UMS away from an A, Bio was 18 UMS and chem was 11 UMS. Is it worth requesting a remark for all of these? What is the maximum number of UMS it could increase/decrease by? or would it be worth requesting the script? really confused and desperate, any help appreciated, thanks

    For maths and sciences, UMS is unlikely to shift my much. There isn't a maximum or minimum by which your grade can shift but there's not a lot of subjectivity, especially with maths. It's really rare for there to be any kind of significant change in marks with science subjects. If you're really desperate you could request remarks but I think it's very unlikely that any kind of significant change will happen. I definitely wouldn't do it for Biology though because (if I'm correct), you're more likely to drop a grade than gain one.
