    Hi everyone. I sat the Edexcel GCSE for ICT and I got a 76/100 UMS grade which is an A. The A* is 81+. Do you think I have a chance to get 5 marks with a remark? Have any of you had a successful remark? Do you think it is worth it?

    Hi there,

    Whether a remark will be successful or not can be down to many different factors, including:

    The level you are studying at
    The subject you're studying
    What modules the subject has and what you got in each module

    My advice to you would be: have you had a look at the different module grades in your ICT GCSE? Is it all coursework or is there an exam component?

    When I did ICT at GCSE (though this was a few years back) I don't think there was anything to do with remarks, but I didn't need one anyway.

    All I can say is: just remember that remarks can go down as well as up. If I was very close to the boundary, I might consider it, but at 76/100, I don't know whether you'll be successful or not. Hopefully someone else will have more knowledge than me about remarks though.

    It is possible to get a higher grade though; I have seen things on here whereby students have had a remark and their grades have gone up to the next grade.

    Hope that helps.
