Should I get it re-marked? (AS chem unit 1 paper) watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm 1 raw mark and 2 ums marks away from an A, and I really wanted to get an A so I'm very disappointed with this. Do you think getting a science paper re-marked worth it? I'm scared I'm just gonna lose more marks and feel worse :/
    Has anyone ever had a non-essay paper re-marked and actually got a higher grade?

    No point - it's basically an A, same as if someone scrapped the ums marks to get an A. You'll have a good chance of getting the A at A2
    Best not to risk it.
    I tried a remark on one of my AS bio papers as I was 2 ums off the next grade but ended up going down by 2 ums -__-
