    How close to the next grade boundary were you? It would be harder for marks to change in a subject like maths, where examiners follow a strict mark scheme, compared to a subjective subject like English although not impossible. You might find this thread useful to consider whether a remark would be a good idea: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4246986

    Those are not your raw marks, mate. Those are your UMS scores.
    50-59 UMS = D
    60-69 UMS = C

    Your actual raw scores are 49/75 for C1 and 47/75 for C2.

    If you got 58/75 for C1 and 63/75 for C2 you would have B and A respectively.

    What about your third module? You should've done 3. Maybe that's the one dragging you down rather than C1 and C2
