    I was wondering if I should get a remark for my A2 sociology exam for education. the exam was called power and control and I got 312 UMS and was 8 UMS from an A and retook just to get an A because I don't have one at A level.

    I'm asking here as my teacher said people have gone up by 4 grades and also down substantially and the marking this year is harsh. I don't want to waste money, but could anyone please help me make up my mind?

    Any help appreciated x

    Go for it. Our Sociology teacher has also informed us that the marking for Sociology Summer '15 was pretty piss poor and they've been getting people go up 2 or 3 grades when remarked.

    Your decision 100% though

    The marking must've been terrible because I wasn't expecting 198/200 ums at AS
    I only got Bs/Cs on my homework essays so was a big shock

    Raw marks don't count it's UMS
    As say for eg 8 ums this year might be roughly 4 marks
    But next year 8 ums could be 6 marks or 5 marks it depends on the paper
    If you need the A go for a remark if not then there's no need
