    hello, well basically i messed up my A-levels and im 5 marks off an A in A2 Maths and at the moment im trying to get into a Maths course through clearing and some of the unis want an A for Maths, do you think there's any point getting some of my papers remarked or is 5 marks too big of a margin? Advice much appreciated, thanks.

    ermmm it depends on how well you think you did if you think you got an A then get it remarked and im not sure which unit you are talking about so i cant say whether its hard or easy for you to go up although its pretty hard to begin with as maths is usually either right or wrong so......

    Hmmm 66 is pretty low and 63 for C4 is pretty low too i would say if you think you def. got better then remark but i doubt it would go up go through the MS and see if you can remember any of it and if you think you did better then get remark

    Yeah I agree. If the courses you are interested in through Clearing require an A in Maths, and you wouldn't want to go elsewhere, then get a priority remark. If your mark goes down or stays the same, you could always go back to college/6th form for another year to resit one or two of your modules in order to get the A. How confident were you after your exams that you'd got an A?

    I wasn't really that confident, it was very borderline but im sure i got higher than 66 in M1.

    Has anyone had any maths remarks go up?

    I wouldn't go for it. More than any other subject, maths is likely to have been marked accurately.

    If your uni place rests on it then what have you got to lose? I'd definitely go for it
