    I got 106 UMS (52 Marks) for Eng Lang Unit 1 TF and 68 UMS (44 Marks) for English Language Unit 3 which in total is 174 UMS off 300 just 6 UMS (4 Marks) off a C. So I need advice in possible remarking my exam paper or the whole subject in attempt to get the 4 marks to pass or do you guys think it’s not worth it?

    Hi, school informed us. My son scored 177 UMS, the boundary for a C was 180 UMS. We got it his English paper remarked and it came back at179, so he was 1 mark off a C. He has re-sat the exam and passed with a solid C.
