    Oh thanks, do you think it's worth having it remarked considering English is a subjective GCSE?

    You could if you wanted, but 9 UMS is a fair amount tbh. Personally I'd leave it - an A is brilliant.*

    I checked and 240 UMS is an A, so you needed roughly 3 more marks.

    Yes I'm wondering the same thing because I'm 3 marks off an A* in English Language. If you're doing English related courses for A level, then I would get it remarked since English is a subjective GCSE, but you could always get marked down for it. I'm going to request the script back but not get it remarked because A is good enough for me.
