    it's because maths mark schemes are very black and white, it's not like history or english.

    however if you're close to a grade boundary, I'd say go for it!

    I'm sorry to say that the maths remarks I had only came back the same if not lower in terms of marks :O

    Also the new rules for remarks may mean it is more difficult for students to be awarded extra marks. The new system means that the original examiner has to have made an obvious mistake in his or her marking, if there is a difference of opinion in the marking of a question, an examiner, as of this year, can NOT make adjustments to the number of marks awarded. This was done to clamp down on both the number of remarks, and the awarding of otherwise so-called "sympathy marks".

    If you're close to a boundary and have nothing to lose still go for it though! You never know your examiner may have made a mistake, it is not unheard of.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
