    I wanna have a clean sweep of A's, but my General studies was a B. 238 UMS. So I only needed two more. This is the thing though. Module 1 was 100, 2 was 98 and 3 was 40. 3 was the essay paper but to be honest I think I deserved a bit better than that. Should I get it remarked?

    Well tbh no-one cares about General Studies so you could just decide to forget about it and look at how well you've done with your 'real' subjects.

    However if you feel that its that important that you have an A in it and you want to pay for a remark, then it sounds as if you have a reasonable chance of getting the 2 marks. It seems that General Studies marking is a bit weird considering i managed to get an A and 100% in one of the modules that I had completely blagged and was convinced I had a U in...so yeah go for it! You might get about 90% in the remark lol

    No, there's no point. For a grade A student General Studies has little value and no university that you would be applying for will care about it.

    That all said, if I was in your position I would seriously consider it so I'm being quite hypocritical. There is no real reason to justify doing it other than being able to say to someone you got straight As, and if that's important to you then so be it.
