    The boundary for an A is 320 UMS, so you are 7 UMS short.

    Is there any point in getting it remarked - is 7 ups points away a lot?

    Thanks

    Honestly? I wouldn't recommend it. In previous years I would have said perhaps but this year, due to the new re-mark guidelines I think 7 UMS is too far away. That said you have a little room to play with so even if you lost a few marks you shouldn't (no guarantees) go down a grade. If it's REALLY important to you then maybe worth a try but I wouldn't be too hopeful.

    Ok thanks. Is the grade boundaries the same for chemistry as I got a similar result in that and thought I might have got an A?

    Thanks

    Great thanks a lot for your help - one final question (sorry) - I did EDEXL PE and also got a B - could you tell me how many marks for an A please. I just cannot work out the grade boundaries and have been getting A* in past papers for the last 2 years so I am really disappointed.

    THanks a lot

    Thank you so much but I am still confused. My exam slip adds up to more than 100 (153 in fact) so is 100 AQA board rather than EDEXCEL?

    Thanks,again this has been so helpful for me.
