iGCSE English Remarking watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi There,
    I have just gone into year 12 and took my GCSE's last summer. I was predicted an A in both exams but only got a B and would like to gather some opinions on whether getting a paper remarked it worth it. I am told I got a UMS of 308 and needed 320 for an A. I know for a fact I got an A* and an A in my language coursework and I think I got an A in the literature. Is it possible/likely that I could gain the extra 12 marks I need? Also if I get it remarked and the grade goes down, do I have to take the lower grade? (I assume I could always say I got the B as I have that in a certificate) Would love to gather some thoughts on this especially from anyone who's been in a similar situation.

    Many Thanks.
