Hi,
I've sent a few papers off for remarks. Was 2 UMS away from an A in one of my subjects. Was just wondering how people's past experiences have been with remarks. Any particular grade-changing success stories? If you could then list the subject and exam board too
My remark is with AQA

Also does anyone know if WEEKENDS count as one of the 18 days in which we can expect our scripts to be remarked?

Hi

Last year I got a D in my OCR ICT exam (G063) and this brought my overall grade down to a B. I got it remarked and the exam mark went up by 12 UMS to a C grade. I got an A overall. :cool:

As you're only 2 ums off an A, you have a decent chance of going up a grade as its only about 1 mark. my friend sent off his OCR AS Psychology paper and went up from a D to a B.

This is encouraging! thank you
My 2UMS converts to two raw marks However, the paper which I've sent for a remark I thought I had done very well in it, expecting at least 90 UMS but ended up with 76 UMS. :/

12 ums. Gosh woah it just goes to show how careless exam boards can be with their marking. To think that students put in so much hard work and the examiners can't even be bothered to mark properly.
Thank you for your encouragement

I'm in the exact same situation ! I talked to the person at my school in charge of coordinating remarks and she said with 2 UMS you have a VERY good chance! Also, it's 18 days including weekends apparently

I'm 6 UMS marks off an A in English Literature OCR, do you think it's worth requesting a remark? Also does anyone know roughly how much it would cost to do priority, 70% of my English grade was an A grade prior to the exam, and I apparently got a C in the exam (82/120 UMS) and I feel it's just not right.

Also I was 10 UMS off a B in Biology, do you think that's worth a re-mark either?

Thanks
