    In a 100 raw Mark, 150 UMS paper, what are the chances of gaining an extra 5 raw marks.

    I felt confident walking out if that makes a difference.

    It all depends on the paper and original marking, i've known someone to go up 7 marks in a chemistry paper though.

    Cheers for the quick reply.

    Is that 7 raw or UMS?

    I think an increase is definitely possible, not sure I can gain the full 10 UMS that I need but working at A/A* grade level to getting a C in the real exam I feel that maybe I can pinch some desperate marks.

    The highest I've seen it +13 raw on an A2 paper!

    Most, though, are lower than +/-2.

    I would not be confident that you'll get return on investment.

    I'm keeping fingers crossed as my mark was so low. So as what I thought I got compared to what I did get were so different, I'm hoping that if there is a marking error there will be a big jump

    Don't bother going for a remark, as usually it only goes up by 2 marks. It really isn't worth the money spent on it. The people who get the remark money are making a fortune, greedy *******s.

    Fingers crossed, if I quote you, you'll read this post and then maybe, just maybe re-read the whole thread rather sooner than you might have hoped.
