Basically I got my results Thursday and saw I got an A in English Language. At the time I was very happy with the result because my CW had always been full marks but I never did that well in the exams.
However I've looked at my ums and I was one stupid mark off an A*. I sat two language exams, one was an A* with 55 ums and the other a B with 44 ums. I'm thinking I should have the B re marked to see if I can get one extra point (I'm aware I could be marked down but I'm 20 marks off the next grade so I think I'll be okay).
The thing is, I'm 4 marks from the next grade in that paper. I don't need the exam grade to go up, just the total marks by a point. So, hypothetically speaking, if it did go up a mark but the paper remained a B, would I not get a refund for the remark despite my overall grade going up? And is it worth it to have a remark?
Thank you to everyone who replies.

Hi, I'm in a similar position, I am 3 marks from an A*. If the grade of your paper didn't change, you wouldn't get a refund but if it went up by 1 mark, you'd get an A*, so I think it's worth it. Also, English is subjective so marks are more likely to change in it than other subjects. Although it could go down, it is unlikely to bring your whole grade down to a B. For me, I only lost 2 marks in all of my coursework and got a low A in my exam so I'm getting mine remarked - my exam doesn't need to go up a grade for me to get an A* either.
