I got my a-level results and I am 2 marks off an A in RS. This makes my overall A-level grades at ABC.
I am applying for uni for next year (i am doing an intensive a-level in law in between).
The question is:
Is there enough time to get a photocopied script, go through it with my teacher. Then if he thinks it is worth getting re-marked, get a remark and be able to submit my UCAS application with the successful remark (if that's the case) by november?
should I just go ahead with the priority remark?

A normal remark takes on average 40 days, so you would have enough time between now and November to request your paper back and have it remarked, providing everything is processed quickly. Some schools/colleges will pay for the remark themselves and if this is the case for you, it might be a good idea to request a priority remark now. I think the deadline for this is 25th August.

I was 2 marks from an A in RS as well, and I'm going ahead with the priority re-mark because I need AAB for most of the Universities I picked...my college don't pay for it, but I don't want to miss the chance of getting an A, even if the final grade stays the same.
My advice would be to go for it - you can't really lose. At worst you might go down by a mark or two, but equally you might get the A. At least you won't feel that you missed the opportunity later.
