    I have just got my A-level results which were A*AB.I got a B in psychology because I got a C in PSYA3 even though I thought i had did pretty well in that exam.I'm only 5 ums off an A, so even though I've gotten accepted into my firm choice is it worth getting a remark?

    Don't some graduate schemes require you to have certain grades? I just don't want to have to regret not getting a remark because I am quite confident that It would boost up my grade.

    A remark could change the grade, because psychology is an essay subject so is relatively subjective, but at the same time it is probably a waste of money since you're in anyway. I'd only bother if your uni offers bursaries or other opportunities for A*AA students, in which case it might pay off.

    Definitely get a remark! Even if A-Levels aren't important in the long run they will always stay with you and so A*AA would look much better. Just get a non-priority remark- £40 or so is hardly a huge waste of money.
