    Teachers predicted me a solid B-A ive been getting those grades in essays and in the mock. In my AS I got a C. I felt the exams went really well, I was somewhat lucky with the questions but I feel under marked... is it worth getting a remark?
    1 mark off a B in one paper and 6 in the other? Doing OCR

    I'm in exactly the same situation: I've done well all year and then got a C, doing OCR English literature too. The only difference is that my school didn't put marks on the results sheet so I've got no idea how close I was.

    If you're considering a remark, you need to weigh up whether it's worth it. Bear in mind that remarks cost money, aren't guaranteed to improve your grade and you have the new remarking system this year that will change what is considered something that can be remarked. I think it's best to talk with your teachers about this, as they probably have a better grasp of your circumstances.
