Hi guys, I was really dissapointed with my GCSEs so I was planning on getting a few papers remarked. Now this would be really expensive so I was wondering if you could tell we whether it was worth it or not as my teachers weren't a big help...
The papers are:
AQA English language - I got a B (mark equiv 227, which is 17 marks from a C and 13 below an A)
AQA biology and AQA physics - I got As in both (both mark equiv 349, which is 11 marks from the grade boundary)
AQA geography - I got a A (mark equiv 353, which is 7 marks from the grade boundary - I got A*s in both papers but lost the marks in the controlled assessment )

I would appreciate it if you could tell me if they had a chance of moving up to the next grade boundary. Thank you.

I would say that English, Biol and Physics are too far from the next grade to go up.

You can't get contolled assesment remarked unless the school asks for the whole cohort to be looked at.
