    So guys, I am one UMS point (259/300) off an A* in Geography. I need some advice whether or not I should get this remarked as it is so close. Some have recommended me to try, however have informed me of a low level risk, that being the grade to be lowered, despite me being at the very top of the boundary. I currently take Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Economics at A-level. Though I understand that none of these subjects really relate to Geography, I feel as if it would be judged on my application into University.

    If the A* is needed for your future I would remark. Chances are it will stay the same or go up. If you're willing to spend the money I would go for it!

    Hi, what exam board are you on? I'm pretty sure A* is 270 and not 260.

    You will not be judged on having an A rather and A* in a subject which is completely irrelevant to your A-Levels and degree course. Having said that there is no reason not to go for a re-mark. The chances of you going down are almost zero.

    (AQA Geo A is 360 for an A*, did you mean 359?)
