    My question is aimed at my politics grade for AS, it is on the old AQA specification so i have the option to resit it at the end of next year. I did really well on the first paper and got 89 UMS which is 62 marks out of 80 however on paper 2 i only got a UMS of 62 which is only 45 marks which is way below what i usually get in my past papers. I usually get about 56/57 on average. I got a B overall.

    I have worked out that i need about 5 marks to get up to the A boundary overall so i was wondering if people thought it is worth remarking the paper. However i am sceptical because 5 marks it a large number of marks for a paper to go up, and also if people think it is a good idea to resit paper 2 at the next year.

    Remember, only remark if you truly believe it can go up.

    There is a chance it can go down and your stuck with a lower grade- be careful

    Get a copy of the script back to get your teacher's view on the chances of a successful re-mark. Take it from there.

    I got the exact same UMS in the unit 1 paper and I was thinking of a remark too, however I don't have 40 quid to spare so I think I'll pass especially since it's closer to the D boundary than the B boundary.
