    Hey guys! I was two marks away from an A grade for GCSE OCR Science as I got 318 and an A is 320 so I decided to get a remark. However I'm kind of nervous now as I do not want my grade to go down so I was just wondering if anyone on here was in a similar or the same situation as I am and how long it took them to get their new result. Thanks.

    Dont worry science is usually accurately marked so I highly doubt it will go down. Also my friend got his remark back within 3 days so I guess it depends really

    There is only a slight chance that your marks will go down and an even smaller one (almost zero) that they would go down enough to lower your grade. All boards are busy at the moment - Edexcel seem to be turning re-marks around the fastest - I would say you should expect your result by the end of the month.

    OCR are turning most remarks round in 1-3 days.

    Had Edexcel back in 4 days and WJEC and CIE back in 2 weeks
