    So here's my problem.

    Got my AS physics grade back yesterday and I was one ums off an A.
    Is it worth sending it back for a remark?
    What do you think are the chances it will go up/down?

    Thanks

    I'd get copies of the scripts back (deadline to apply is 22 Aug) and then a teacher's view on whetehr it's worth a re-mark of one - you have until 19 September to decide.

    Yeah, that's probably the best thing to do.

    Thanks

    I would definitely get it remarked. If it goes down it won't be hugely significant since you won't drop a grade, but if it goes up your applications will become a lot more competitive since universities won't be aware of whether it's a low or very high A (they'll just know that it's an A).

    Yeah, there's no way it could go down to a C (I hope )
