    Hey all,

    I'm very tempted to get my A2 English Lang and Lit paper remarked since I got an A overall and 179 ums in the A2 units - putting me at 1ums away from an A*.

    However I am only on 339/400ums overall (A boundary is 320 ums) so there I'm just paranoid of the possibility of me dropping the 19ums and getting a B.

    I know it's unlikely but I just want to know if anybody has heard of any massive changes down like that.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, sounds reaaaaaaaaaaaaaallly unlikely it'll go down that much.

    I've only ever remarked two papers, AS and A2 History, both went up overall from a B to an A

    Thanks for the input, I'll think strongly about going for it.
