    Hi everyone,

    I got my A2 Level results not long ago and in one of my subjects (ICT) I got a grade B, 3 marks off an A. I got an email from my teacher today suggesting that I ask for a remark, but I'm not sure whether it's worth it since I know my grade could also go down, which I definitely wouldn't want.

    I would like to know, what is the likelihood that my grade will increase if I do ask for a remark? Do remarks often result in a higher grade? I've never had a remark before so I don't really know how it works.

    Thanks

    If you are scared that your grade may go down then don't bother getting it remarked however if you feel confident that you did better and dont agree with your given grade/score then go for it.

    I think I will get a remark then - I feel it's a bit unfair to get a B when I was an A/A* student throughout the year. I also just looked at the grade boundaries and I'd have to lose 9 marks to go down to a C, and I doubt I'd lose that many marks. Thanks for your reply

    I think take the re-mark.
    It is not likely that when you get a re-mark you will lose 9 marks. If you were to lose marks it would be a couple and then you would still have the B
    Best case scenario though, you've got the A

    At the end of the day though, it's up to you but this is my advice
