Go for the one with the least marks yet isn't too low in case your son moves from a C to a D for example. Don't get them all remarked as what would likely happen is one paper will move up a mark and then another will move down :facepalm:

Thanks both
Sorry to sound dim but I'm not sure which of the above are the additional science papers rather than the "other"science papers as he's got no hope in the "other" one. Can someone copy all the bits from the above that make up his overall additional grade please?

Am I also correct that it doesn't matter where he gains (or goes down) on the individual boundary letters above as it's just the overall grade that counts?
