    I got my results on Thursday and I got AAA but I'm thinking of getting a few remarks. I've secured my uni place but I kinda just want closure on whether I got an A* or not because I really hoping on beating my predicted grades of AAA so that I could take a gap year and reapply for either UCL and Imperial for chemistry (leaning towards chemistry but maybe physics). My current place is for Physics.

    I live in London and my current uni place is outside London, I don't have a problem with moving out but I just don't have a good feeling about my university. I've always had my hopes set on UCL/Imperial.

    When I worked out my averages, they were really close to 90% so it really bugs me.
    Maths (OCR MEI) A, C3 - 96/100, C4 - 81/100 - I've already put remarks (C4 is priority) in for both as my average 88.5% -
    Chemistry (OCR) A, F324 - 86/90, F325 - 124/150, F326 - 54/60 that is 89% - I've put both F324 (normal) and F325 (priority) in for remarks.

    I haven't put physics (AQA PHYSICS A - overall grade A) in for remark yet but I got: PHA4 - 105/120 PHA5D - 98/120 PHA6T - 60/60 that is 87.7%, should I put PHA4 and PHA5D for remarks?

    What's the likelihood of these remarks actually being successful? Should I also remark physics?

    I'm just so confused Can anybody just calm me down and give me some good advice?

    I'd have a look at your grade boundaries before making any decisions. How far were you into an A? If you just scraped one I really wouldn't risk it. Also remember that in some subjects the Raw Mark-UMS boundaries increase a lot when you're getting high marks. Eg: 40 Raw Marks could = 40 UMS, but 60 Raw Marks could = 80 UMS. If you lose a few marks you could lose a lot of UMS and perhaps fall down to a B overall.
