    Should I get my maths remarked? I got 166 (A) and needed 170 for the A*. Do you think they will be able to find 4 marks between the two papers and how long does the remarking process usually take?

    It can vary but it usually takes about two weeks. It's probably not worth it though tbh, it's rare for Maths papers to be marked incorrectly and 4 marks is quite a bit for Maths.

    Again, I'd leave it. You're about midway into the A boundary so it could go down as well as up (but I'm both cases, it's unlikely it'll change dramatically so that your grade changes).

    I just felt that with business there was a lot of essay answers and the way you reasoned and thought another marker could give me a few extra marks

    It's up to you, but another marker could also take off a few extra marks. Remember that the remark grade is final, even if it is lower than the original.

    An A grade is still very impressive - nice one.

    In my opinion yeah cause you have a 37 UMS boundrary for it to drop below an A which just wouldn't happen so you dont really have anything to lose. Also, history is obviously essay based and marks are more easily found that in say maths, if I was you I would definitely.
