    The remark system has changed significantly this year such that you're only awarded marks if the marker has clearly not followed the mark scheme, rather than simply a different interpretation. This means you either get a huge upgrade from a marker's mistake or you don't get any at all.

    It's possible yeah, but the likelihood isn't as high as it used to be. Remarks don't go and look especially to get you another mark (indeed, it's possible that your remark will give you a lower grade if the person doing the remark thinks some of your marks were given in error), they're only there for when examiners have made mistakes which don't follow the mark scheme.

    has anyone remarked AQA AS biology and chemistry yet?, how was it?
    I need 2 ums for A in both should I get them remarked?
    is it true that each paper costs 50 pounds?
    should I ask for all the 4 papers to be remarked or ask for some of the papers?
