    The deadline for non-priority remarks is the 20th of September. My question is, if I submit my script for review now, will I get it back sooner than if I submit it closer to the deadline? Or do they only start remarking after the 20th of September?

    I want to submit for remark OCR AS Geography (Human module).

    If it's for AS exams, it won't matter when you get your grades back. They'll get marked after the priority remarks for A2 :yep:

    I would like it back before my Oxford application deadline of October 15th - would it not be more likely to get the remark back earlier if I submit it earlier?

    Ask your exams officer, they will know, but I would assume the earlier you submit it, the earlier you get it back :yep:

    A lot of it depends on how your school works. If the school submits it in the next few days it will be back before the end of August.

    If I sent a priority remark yesterday, will it be back by the 31st August? Need it by then as it could possibly change the uni I get in to

    It depends a lot on the exam board but they should all be back by 31 August.. We had a few Edexcel re-marks back today, I'd expect OCR to get some back by Monday and AQA by the middle of next week.

    Not likely - most re-marks don't change - but they might. Historically around 20% of remarks change mark, but it's likely to be less than that this year as they have changed the rules.
