Edexcel AS History remark????Watch
I got my AS results on the 13th (like everyone else), and apart from history, made As in everything. Unfortunately, I received a B in history - the subject that I want to do at University. Out of the two components that made up my grade, I got a high A (87%) in one component (Communism and Democracy in the 20th Century), and a mid level C (65%) in the second component (19th Century British political history i.e. The source paper).
I need around 6 marks (from both papers) to scrape 80% overall, but I'm only remarking my British paper since there is much more space for the marks to increase (the Communism and Democracy paper mark quite high already so it would be more likely to go down in marks rather than up). I've received my photocopied script back and will get a teacher to look at it and get some advice from him/her on whether to go for a remark.
Essentially, I need some advice on whether to get it remarked, and some past experiences of getting papers remarked would really be helpful too. I understand that my teacher will give me advice but I'd really love to get some advice from current students!
I just got my remark for my Edexcel History AS and sadly my mark didn't change. I was one mark away from an A overall. The paper I got the B in was my stronger paper and I was shocked I didn't get a A in it so thought I had a good chance in getting a higher mark.
I'm really sorry to hear that. If you don't mind me asking, which history topics were you taking?
History 1 Option E: The Unification of Germany 1862-1890 & The Middle East in Conflict 1945-2001
History 2 Option D: The British Empire Challenged, Britain and Ireland 1867-1922
