    In history A OCR I got 179/200 and I think that 1 off an A*. In physics AQA I got 357/400 UMS and I needed 360 UMS for A* and in RS AQA I got 178 UMS when I did 2 units of 100 UMS each so i think that it was 2 UMS off A*. Do you think its worth me getting a remark? I've currently got 4A*s but if those 3 went up then I'd have 7A*s and since I'm applying for med that would be helpful.

    Firstly, you don't need 7 A*s to do Medicine.

    In terms of Physics, I would leave that - it's very unlikely for marks to change in the Sciences because of the nature of those subjects. You could consider it for History and RS, but there have been some changes in the remark system this year which will make it less likely for marks to change than previous years. Ultimately it's up to you!
