so I took a gcse geography course of only one year as I got recommended. We did all the normal things including c/a and both physical/human topics although we did less topics overall than a 'normal' two-year course student would have done. I was very disappointed when my teacher announced the c/a grades as he obviously marked them himself before submitting to the examiner. I was one mark away from an A so my first question is do you think there is still a chance that the examiner will overlook the c/a and give me an extra mark? or will what my teacher predicted be my final c/a grade? secondly I would like to know if there is still any chance of me getting an A star overall? I know it would require a lot of effort but looking in the best case scenario if I get A stars for both physical and human tests coming up in the next weeks could my overall grade be an A star? or is it impossible for me to get above an A? If you have any personal experience stories or professional advice I would really appreciate

No worries. If you're one mark from the boundary, examiners frequently "hunt" for an extra mark where they can, and you always have the option to request a remark in which they go through it thoroughly and frequently find an extra mark or two.
Yes there is a chance of an A* but it is unlikely if you're a mark away from an A. Good luck!
