    Go ahead but I'm sorry to say it may not make a difference as examiners won't likely have made an error as in maths ur either right or not

    Talk to your teachers about getting the paper remarked, if they think it's worth it then they'll pay for it.

    I would do a remark. Though be warned maths is not a subjective subject so is less likely to go up, but it's not unheard of.

    Phone up your school and ask to speak to the exams officer to explain you want a remark. They should do the rest. Bear in mind that you might be charged for it depending on the schools policy.

    What my school did was, they looked through all our grades last night and found the ones were one mark off.
    Then when you collect your results they tell you to sign ( Exam board needs your permission) to re-mark. Didn't your school did that???
    because after getting your results you should go straight up to exam officer.

    I've never been through this process, but I would recommend talking to your school or a teacher.

    Speak to your school for remark, my school wanted us to open our results in school in case of disappointment or anything then you can deal it in school.
    Then when you go to sixth form or college about the enrolment interview (after you get the remark sorted) , tell them you were only one mark off a C and requesting a remark. they'd probably let you in.
    But in case your school wont help you remark the paper, the sixth form or college may give you additional support to resit gcse along side with a levels.

    No worries!!! as long as my advice is helping you!!
    Yeah, you can tell your sixth form to resit, a lot of sixth form or colleges offer this kind of support which is good.
    Because before getting my results i keep googling what if I failed Maths or English gcse , and the answer is the sixth form and college will offer you extra lessons to finish your course. I mean you still get into the college if you meet the requirements what they're asking for, but just additional lessons will be needed.

    Try to speak to your school and then try to ring the Head of sixthform of the school you applied to!
