    I just got my AS results (AABB) and I was one mark off an A in edexcel Government and Politics

    My issue is that I don't know which paper to send for remarking. My bad paper was unit 1 which was 76 UMS and my good paper was unit 2 83 UMS.

    Unit 1 has a higher chance of going up as there are more questions and more marks to be gained but unit 2 was my stronger paper so the answers are better. Unit 1's answers were also pretty bad so theres a chance it could go down even which i really dont want.

    Which one should I send off? I can't do both.

    I would say paper 1

    But why can't you send off both?
