    I got an A in Edexcel Chemistry with a UMS score of 287 - 3 marks off an A*. My headteacher told me that it would be unlikely for me to get it but should I go for it anyway?

    I agree with your headteacher - it's rare for marks to change in the sciences. It is up to you but I'd just leave it personally.

    Thank you so much for reminding me! I thought it was 290 for a moment. I'm definitely getting a remark now
