    I think you need 180 about 5 raw marks might be worth the try.

    I think that 180 UMS was a grade C overall, so you're only 10 UMS away, and considering English is very subjective, I'd say you should go for the remark. Goodluck if you decide to do so!

    I agree with this guy. Out of 300 UMS you got 170, and 180 is the boundary for a C grade, so you're 10 UMS (marks equivalent = UMS) off a C grade, so I'd say it's worth it. One of my friends got this remarked and it went up 14 UMS
