    So I just failed my aqa English language exam and I'm pretty upset about it. I got 176USM and you need 180 to pass what are the chances of my remark going up?

    To be honest 4 UMS isn't a huge amount for it to go up, however changes to the remarking system this year mean that there has to be clear evidence of the marker being unreasonable/making mistakes for the mark to go up. English is more subjective than say, maths or chemistry, though, so while it's very hard to say whether it will go up it may be more likely than for other subjects.

    I hope your remark comes back with the grade you were hoping for
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
