    C1 = 84 UMS
    C2 = 93 UMS
    C3 = 86 UMS
    C4 (ISA) = 93 UMS

    That means that overall I got 356/360 which is annoying af. Do you think I can get the extra 4 UMS if I get one of my exams remarked to get an A*? I heard that science exams are hardly ever marked up, but if they include a lot of "essay" writing (lots of 4, 5, 6 markers) the chance of getting extra marks would be increased.

    If I should get it remarked, which exam would be the best one to remark? C1, C2 or C3?

    Thank you

    If you want to risk your money go for it, but realistically speaking especially based on the new remarking system, its very unlikely your grades will change, especially for quite an objective subject such as chemistry.

    Do you need the A* for any particular reason? or is it just for self satisfaction/ social satisfaction?

    Both - I don't want to be so close to an A* and miss out, and it's nice to say that I have another A* rather than an A
