    Hello

    I received my retakes results for the third time yesterday in GCSE English and I got a D.... My question is do I really need to retake? I mean I don't mind however I am just fed-up to try anymore. Its now taken the toll on me as I have to continuously retake Maths and English year after year. I just want to be sure that I am not wasting time and using my time wisely. Your input and advice would be totally appreciated... I have already started my revision so that I can achieve my best in the upcoming November exams.

    Thank you so much

    Hey

    I was thinking of getting it remarked however sometimes there may be other mistakes in the paper so then it would be a disaster I know its far fetched but to me its better to be safe then sorry... this would mean I may even get a U* and this would be my final mark!

    How did you do after you're re-mark?

    Get it remarked because i doubt that even if you do lose marks, you wouldnt lose that mnay so it is worth it- youre going to be retaking anyway and youve done it 3 times so see if the there was problem with the marking. Its worth a shot!
