    Is anyone doing post-remark appealing for results? I'm considering it but I don't know if it's worth it.. Are they likely to actually change it, if they refused to in the first remarking?
    (My remark came back exactly the same, but I think it's a mistake due to the way they "remark" in the new system and the fact that I was predicted an A/A* but got a D.)
    Thanks in advance

    You can appeal but it seems from what you say to be pointless. Your predicted grades don't really play a part in it and the new approach to re-marking is simply the way they do it now - you can't appeal against it.

    Let me know what you decide to do.

    No. With the exception of 3 subjects that are undergoing a trial this year (RS, Physics and Geography I think) disagreeing with the marking is not a valid reason for appealing. You have to contest some part of the process. Also, individual candidates cannot appeal, it can only be done by the head of centre so you'd have to convince him/her that the appeal is worth making.

    Any definite error should be corrected. If an A grade essay was marked at a D there would be a lot of definite errors..

    Can I ask what subject this was in? I was also predicted an A and dropped to a D in RS (even after remark) so I'm highly considering an appeal...
