So I got My AS results yesterday, biggest shock in my life when I saw what I got in business studies AS

buss1 (Unit 1) C 48 UMS MARKS (4 marks off a B)

BUSS2 (Unit 2) U 31 UMS MARKS ( 1 mark of an E and 4 of a D)

Im semi okay with buss1 C grade, aalthough a B would be nice


However I am shocked with Buss2! Not in a million years did I think I got a U. I think I my hand writing may have been a problem as i am always told and I think the examiner may have got annoyed and just carried on and gave it a U. Also I think I could pick up the easy one mark and get a E and get some ucas points as my overall grade right now is a U. Could I get a remark and how much will it cost. Also do you think I should get a remark on buss1 and try to get the B? Also with a subject like business studies prone to picking up marks.

I got the same on BUSS1 !!! but a E on paper 2. I was thinking of just redoing paper 2 because there are more marks on offer. I think they've marked extremely harshly.

Somebody that shares my sorrows, I love you! And yes I agree they did mark very harsh. Could I ask how many marks you got in unit 2 so I could see how many I need to bump up a mark? Also can I not pay for the remark, and if it ain't good enough just resit unit 2? Also I har the government are bringing in a new business studies method and exams, will we be effected and can we resit? Also how many marks did you get in buss1? thanks

You should ask for a remark if it's just one mark off.
Doesn't a remark cost £20?

[I got 55 UMS in paper 2 and 48 ums is 33 marks out of 60 in BUSS1. i feel you, i was getting like A/B/C in my papers in school, but evidently it wasnt to be.They are bringing out a new course but because we started it we are allowed on resit and they will give us the exams that are the same as the year we studied. I'd say get it remarked if its very close to the grade boundary, and just try very hard to smash the resits and A2 work. and yes you can resit

What exam board was it under? It varies from board to board.
AQA charges about £40 for a remark. So I'm not sure which is cheaper... to just do a retake or to remark it.

Yeah I'm sure you can do that.
