Got an E in my Geography A-level, but I had it remarked and it went up to a D.
The grade for the actual paper however, stayed the same:
Am I eligible for a refund in this respect?
I know that refunds are usually given if the paper goes up a grade, but what about if the remark increases the grade of the whole A-level?

Were I feeling uncharitable, I'd perhaps suggest that the taxpayer deserves a refund for the previous two years of your education.
As it is: for an exam-board to refund the cost of a remark which only increases the 'grade' of a single paper (spurious, since their final award is based upon combined UMS rather than some meaningless aggregation of letters), yet not when the result improves your actual grade (i.e. the one that potentially determines whether or not you will attend university, and by extension, your entire academic career), would strike me as an absolute nonsense.
So, ironically, you're almost certainly more eligible for a refund than if the situation were vice-versa.Last edited by Profesh; 17-09-2015 at 09:50.
