    So I just found out what mark I got on my Math's exams in total. To which is 138/142.= Grade D. But is so close from a Grade C. 4 marks away, 2 on each paper.

    Currently, my math's department is going to look at the paper themselves - see if it's worth any extra marks, and then deem it worthy for a remark.

    I'm just wondering, what are the chances it could get those 4 extra marks since Math's is a very strict mark scheme, and of this year I heard that marking is extra harsh - So I'm really worried. Part of me wishes they did a mistake and I could just get those 4 marks.

    Thanks.

    You never know - you might get a few more marks for the methods you used. But you're right - Maths is a pretty clear cut subject for marking.

    But you may have to have another go at it - if you do, you should feel confident that you can nail those extra marks then.

    Good luck!
