    Hi all,
    I'm really happy with my results on the whole
    I was predicted an A* in english lang and my teacher was very confident I'd get it

    I had full UMS on the coursework,
    But then somehow I had a B and a C in the exam!! In all my mocks I passed english lang with flying colours, full UMS or just off

    I thought the one exam went well (B) and then the other one okay the C

    I had an A overall, and I know this is good but english is supposed to be one of my strong points, an A is 160/200 and an A* 180/200, I think I had 164!! so only just over an A

    Should I have a remark?? But what if it goes down

    i wouldn't bother to remark if i were you. It's very unlikely that you'd be marked down by 4 marks so don't worry bout getting marked down, but it's even more unlikely that you'd be mark up 16 marks, so really... what's the benefit ya feel?
    The only way that remarking would make a difference would be in the scenario that they completely marked you wrong in the first place.
    An A is still great though so don't worry about it.

    if this is any help; i was in set 1 for science, predicted all 3 A*s but i was lazy and didn't study much and came out with 3 As haha
