    Hi,

    I received my A level results this morning and would like a little advice, if possible, if it's worth requesting a re-mark in 2 subjects - Maths and Chemistry.

    I sat 4 subjects - Maths, Chemistry, Biology & Physics and received 4 As.

    The examining board is CEA

    Maths

    Module 1 Raw Mark 73. Maximum Uniform Mark 100. Uniform Mark 97. (a)
    Module 2 Raw Mark 61. Maximum Uniform Mark 100. Uniform Mark 91. (a)
    Module 3 Raw Mark 53. Maximum Uniform Mark 100. Uniform Mark 79. (a)
    Module 4 Raw Mark 67. Maximum Uniform Mark 100. Uniform Mark 91. (a)

    The aggregation of Units C3 and C4 must be over 90% which is 180 UMS or above out of the 200 UMS available. As you can see I scored 170 in 3 and 4 and i'm 10 points short of an A*. Would it be worth asking for a re-mark or is it unlikely to change?

    Chemistry

    Unit 1 Raw Mark 86. Maximum Uniform Mark 120. Uniform Mark 105. (a)
    Unit 2 Raw Mark 94. Maximum Uniform Mark 120. Uniform Mark 94. (b)
    Unit 3 Raw Mark 63. Maximum Uniform Mark 60. Uniform Mark 59. (a)

    As you can see unit 2 seems to have let me down. Again, as with Maths, would it be worth requesting a re-mark, or am I that far off the requirement that it would be a waste of time?

    The aggregation of the three A2 units must be over 90% of the total UMS available for A2 units which is 270 UMS or above out of 300 UMS available. I scored a 251.

    My biology follows the same pattern as the 2 above but I'm 19 points short of an A Star.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who understands how CEA works, how likely it is for them to be able to find 10 points in my maths, 12 points in my Chemistry and 19 points in Biology.

    My AS levels were all As and I received 7 A*s in my GCSEs and 5 As. I'm hoping to apply to study medicine next year after taking a gap year. With these results it limits my options about which Universities I can apply to. Obviously I would prefer some A*s, as everyone would, but if this is unachievable I will have to accept it.

    Thank you.

    It's very unlikely for marks to change in the sciences, and you're a fair distance off the next boundary. I'd just leave it tbh - an A is still amazing and fine for Medicine.

    Thank you for the advice. I did think that A levels in subjects like English were easier to be re-marked.
