    Basically I got one of my papers remarked for AS science in society and it went up by 6 marks, 13 UMS and I got the next grade. Now I'm gutted that I didn't get my GCSE English lit remarked. I was 10 marks off the nearest grade boundary but about 2 marks on each paper. I really want to get it remarked. Is there any way or chance that I could get it remarked especially since the deadline is today?

    Sorry, I think you have missed it (unless you can get in touch with your exam officer right now!). The only option would be to get him/her to ring the board in the morning and plead extenuating circumstances. There would need to be a very good reason why the appeal couldn't have gone in earlier.
    Although 10 marks seems close, as you point out, every question would need to go up by a couple of marks. In my experience this is very unlikely. You might get a couple more marks, but 10 is a big step. The re-mark system has become stricter this year, so you did well to get the science moved up, well done.

    Okay thanks. I just want to add that the grade I received was slightly lower than my target grade and I've just found out that another girl at my school got her paper remarked and she went up by 12 marks. Do you think that my exam officer would be able to plead on my behalf considering the other girls mark went up by a lot

    It is 2 weeks since the deadline (which is always 20 September for AQA, Edexcel, OCR and WJEC) and so you are far too late.
