    Wewt, rekt those Maths results , congratulations everyone!

    Overall grade: A* | 549/600 UMS | 91.5% UMS

    UNITS:
    MPC1 - 100 UMS
    MPC2 - 100 UMS
    MPC3 - 100 UMS
    MPC4 - 93 UMS (didn't finish the vectors and made two silly mistakes </3)
    MM1B - 100 UMS
    MD01 - 56 UMS (yeah, I did no revision for that one)

    I know, RIP in pepperonis 100 UMS in all core units :/ (was never aiming for 600/600 UMS because I'm too lazy for the optional unit ... only got 100 UMS in M1 because it's ez pz xD).

    Overall A-level subject grades:
    AQA Mathematics - A*
    OCR Physics A - A
    Edexcel D&T Graphic Products - B

    AS subject grades:
    AQA Mathematics - A
    OCR Physics A - A
    Edexcel D&T Graphic Products - A
    OCR Chemistry A - B (dropped because I didn't really like it that much and was thus less willing to revise - especially so when considering my school makes you drop to three A2's unless the fourth is Further Maths - for it, hence the B)
    Congrats! Going to uni?

    They shuffle them to maximise your grade anyway don't they?

    Is there any way a remark of my core 4 could move it up 10 ums (5 raw marks) or is this highly unlikely? I got 70 (52 marks) but really need 80 as I got 100 in core 3.

    Highly unlikely, sorry. Given that it's a maths exam, the mark scheme will be very definitive regarding the allocation of marks. As such, unless you were wrongly not credited with accuracy marks on multiple questions, I can't see a scenario in which your mark would increase by 10 UMS.
