Got my results yesterday, they weren't what I was expecting at all. Got a D in ICT overall, but got an E in Geography.

Resat Unit 1 since I got a U in it last year in AS, but in Unit 2 I got a B (so didn't resit it), for Units 3 and 4 I got Es.
The first odd thing is that I got the exact same mark in both Units 1 & 3 (50UMS, Es)- how common is it to get the exact same mark in a resit and a non-resit examination.

The second odd thing is that (especially for unit 3) my teacher did quite a few mock exams and I constantly got Cs and Bs, with only the first time I got a D. Also for unit 3 one of the mocks were almost identical to the actual paper (mock papers were from a pack we were given, made by a company ('Z'- something) who predicts what will come up and creates mock papers based on it), and I got a B in this mock.

Similar story for Unit 1, but I had spent almost three weeks prior to the exam actually revising just for the one exam (since I had this exam, then a three-week gap when the rest were).

Maybe I'm just overreacting, but is it worth obtaining a remark of my Geography papers?
I've already submitted an application to get my papers back (since I was told by the school that I can get the papers back, and then decide whether to get a remark done or not).
