    I'm getting it remarked is there a strong possibility they will give me 2 marks to boost me to the B grade? It means the difference between A levels and BTEC, thanks.

    Good lord, that's harsh. Doesn't seem fair that 2 marks can make that difference; maybe if it was the difference between a C and D but a B and a very high C? Harsh.
    It's possible, but it's also possible that you could lose 2 marks so be hopeful but realistic. Would you consider studying elsewhere if it doesn't work out for the best? If you want to do A-Levels and not BTEC 2 marks shouldn't make that difference.

    Yes i got a B in my English language but 2 off a B in lit and i need 2 B's lit and language to do it at A-level, at this point i have no choice as i can't go anywhere else but i really am trying to be hopefully because i feel i can completely excel BTEC and for 2 marks i think it is not fair to be stripped of that, thanks for your reply thought appreciate it.

    if you felt like the exam went very well for you
    more than expected and you feel like those 2 marks should be there then there is a possibility that you may get marks added on where the examiner thinks they should be awarded

    i really think you should get a remark as there is a possibility of you gaining marks
    however there is a possibility of you losing marks but if that were to happen i do not think it would effect you grade
