    Hi all,

    I received my A2 results the other day. I was predicted an A in English lit, having achieved an A at AS. I got an A* in my coursework and thought the exam went well.
    However, I actually got a D in the exam, giving me a B overall. This happened to 2 of my classmates as well.

    I was wondering if this was worth a remark. My remark would not depend on a university place, and because of this, my classmates aren't seeking a remark. However, I thought it was very odd and I don't know whether it's worth a remark since I'm genuinely confused. I'm a bit conflicted because I'm happy with a B, I just don't know what happened in that exam.

    Any advice anyone?

    I would go for a remark if you have the money. English Lit is extremely subjective so there is a high chance of your grade going up especially if you felt you did better. Also even though its not necessarily needed personally it would leave me with a bitter taste-its a matter of pride

    I have found myself in exactly the same with English Language as I also got an A at AS, a B overall at A Level , an A in my coursework and a D in the exam. I have already applied for a remark and am awaiting the results. A D to you is as probably as strange as it is for me, so please submit for a remark for your own peace of mind as I would imagine there has been an error somewhere. I achieved 71UMS for my exam which is equivalent to 37/80 raw. Even with errors, my essays have been a minimum of around 30 in class so to be getting almost 20 marks per essay seems completely implausible to me and I imagine your in a similar situation with UMS yourself. Best of luck and let me know how you get on

    If it doesn't influence your university place, then personally there's no point. You should literally forget about A-levels now. Uni is where it really counts. Your A-levels have got to the place you wanted to go now. So literally, forget about it - uni is where the real sweat begins!
