    I got a B in my EPQ but it was marked as an A* at my school. I don't need if for my uni place and I know they can be marked down by an examiner. Nevertheless, I felt that I put in so much work to get the A* grade so I was just wondering if its worth a remark?

    You can't get EPQ re-marked. The only option (assuming that the centre's work has been moderated down by the exam board) is for the school to pay for the lot to be re-,moderated.

    The rule is the same for all coursework (all exam boards) that is marked by the centre and externally moderated. If the school's work really has been marked down harshly enough to change an A* to a B then the school may be considering applying for re-moderation so you could ask if they are.

    Ok thanks. If my school did decide to re moderate it, they would ask AQA so does this mean all the coursework completed for All subjects with AQA as the exam board at my school will be re moderated? Or just the students doing the epq?
