    HI well I only got a C grade in math I know its good and I wont have to retake it but I really was expecting an A grade and it really hurts me to know that I just got a C grade, im thinking about a remark and im aware of the risk of my C grade going to a D grade

    Any advice would be helpful


    If you're wanting to get an A overall I would suggest a retake as it's unlikely to go up 2 grades. Have a look at the grade boundaries and see how far away you are from a B , if you're close and you would be happy with a B then get it remarked

    If the grade boundaries are far apart, and you're at the top of the C grade boundary, I don't see why not. You must get atleast a couple extra marks, but remember it's your effort that counted in the exam. A remark won't magically get you an A..

    I was 6 marks away from a B so it doesn't matter I'll just keep the C grade at least I passed Maths
