    In my experience you're very likely to get marked up. I was nine marks off an A at Physics A2 and got moved up to one when my college paid for my remark. I've never known anyone's grade go down, especially that close to an upper boundary.

    Are you at GCSE or A level?

    Well, if you're one mark off, it would be 50/50 even if there wasn't any bias towards increasing your grade. But I think there is an upwards bias (like I say, I've never known someone drop marks), and you definitely have nothing to loose. Maths isn't so ambiguous that you could loose enough marks to be moved down to be B

    But really your college should pay for it if you're so close - mine did because it looks good for the school to have more top grades.

    Ya there is still time talk to your exams officer or physics teacher. Deadline for remarks is sep20. You will probably have to pay 68.40 pounds as schools get a bit stingy when it comes to As ans A*s apparently.

    Thanks. Really do not want to have to pay that amount of money though.. Might see what my college says, but I doubt very much whether they'd want to pay for it :rofl: Thanks for your help!
