    You could ask for a remark but the chances would be low. have you shown any improvement?
    What did your teacher say?
    Did you practice exams?
    How hard did you work?


    Dont think you have much choice but to sit again.

    AQA
    It's up to you whether you want a remark or not. But if you do end up needing to resit it again then you need to find the mistakes and see how it can be improved. If you did the AQA IGCSE i can try to help

    I'm not sure how much a remark would cost but the first time I got a remark my marks stayed the same so it's up to you really

    I somehow got a B overall for mine. Did you do the foundation or higher paper and how did you find it?

    Its one of the 2 GCSEs you actually need. The other being Maths.
    With good teaching and prep you really shouldnt fail.

    If opther people can get A* then you onviously have scope to score far higher, which means there are marks other people get that you havent learn how to access.

    A B or higher on your courseworl whould help give you a suchion against exam performance. Its really just practice and , spotting the mistakes and learning to avoid them. You cna do it if you really want it.

    Definitely consider a remark, but also consider retaking in November. Mr Bruff's youtube channel has some great videos on there that will help you to access the higher marks, or to do better on the foundation paper if that's what you are taking. There are people who have posted today in his comments sections that have gone from much lower grades than you and got the pass after revising using his videos.

    The bottom line, keep trying. You will pass it. Keep the faith
