My daughter achieved 69.5% overall on her combined science GCSE mark and was awarded a C. However her school has suggested to have the exam remarked as she was only 2 marks off getting a B. She achieved 74% Biology, 72% Physics, 69% Chemistry and 63% in her ISA which can't be remarked. My questions is do we risk getting all 3 papers remarked or just try one paper (school suggested Biology) as my fear is the marks could counter balance if more or less are awarded....thanks for any advice.
Fyi she got 278 and I believe boundary for a B is 280 so she is 2 marks off a B. She was predicted low A/High B by school.

My advice would be to ask your daughter which exam she feels is most likely going to go up after how the exam went so if she found that she got a lower score in lets say physics then she expected than I would send that one off. I hope it does go up to a B. I was lucky enough to get 281ums in core science so I just got it phew!anyway good luck and I hope you have success

She is 2 UMS marks of a B, so the chances are she only needs to find a single (raw) mark. I would be tempted to send all three papers off. While I have seen marks go down occasionally there is more chance of finding an additional mark if all three are reviewed.
