    I missed my grades for Cambridge - the requirements were A*AA but I got AAB (

    My results really don't reflect the work that I put in.

    I have requested remarks but it's unlikely they will change as much as I need them to.

    I am adamant that at least two of the papers should be A LOT higher.

    So what other options do I have if these remarks don't go up to what I need them to be (and what I am sureeeee they should be at least close to)?

    I'd get them re-marked, and if it doesn't go up, consider taking a gap year and re-applying? My friend did this for Chemistry at Oxford, and she got in a second time in a row, with her better grades (in my day the requirements were AAA).
