    Hi,
    I'm not sure where this should go so please excuse me if it's in the wrong section.
    I got 1 mark off of a B in my chemistry F321 and 2 marks off a B in my physics G482 paper. Do you think it would be worth it to send off for a remark? Is there a chance it could be graded up? I know there's a chance it could be marked down but I'm not sure if I should risk it or not... :/

    Is there anyone else who has been in a similar situation and managed to have their papers graded up/down?

    If you're only one mark off in a subject like chemistry, where answer are more 'right or wrong' and less subjective, I would personally go for it. Your grade may not go up but as it's so close to the boundary the grade is unlikely to go down (although you may end up with a lower UMS). It's the same with physics - if it's that close to a boundary then it may very well be worth a remark. However, please bear in mind that remarks are expensive and unless your grade goes up you'll have to fork out about £100 to get both papers remarked (if the grade goes up you get the money back).

    Thank you! I think I'll go for it, then.

    My friend got her Chem remarked and it went up by 4 marks from a B to an A, this was on AQA though.

    before the remark, how far away from an A was your friend?

    I believe 4 marks. However I imagine this increase in a subject as objective as Chemistry is rare, but clearly still possible.
