    I have just gotten my script back for Psychology AS for a paper that I had gotten an unexpected B for. Everyone including me was quite surprised because I always get an A - full marks for Psychology papers. It had only been this one essay question that lost me marks (everything else was basically correct)

    I had requested my script back and looked through it, and there was a 12 mark essay style question in which I had received 5 marks for. For this question I had used extra paper which is shown at/attached to the bottom of the script. The problem is, the script shows ticks on ONLY the first paper, not the extra paper. This either means that they didn't read my extra paper OR it was all incorrect.

    On one exam paper I had received one mark away from a C and on the other, 4 marks away from an A. If I were to remark, do you think (in worst case scenario) I would drop to a C? Is it worth the risk or should I just leave it?

    Thank you for your help

    I think it's worth asking for a remark, could you not show your psychology teacher it first for a second opinion? I sent off a paper once because I was 1 mark off the grade boundary, it came back 3 marks less haha. But really, you've got nothing to lose. If you remain at a B would you resit? Because if so you'd just do the same if it came back as a C so why not?
