    my classics A level was 1 ums off an A. i sent my lowest module back and it wasnt changed. am now waiting for the photopcopy for my teacher and will either send a different exam to be remarked or the same one again.
    does anyone have any experience with situations like these and could give me any advice?

    All I know about re-marking is that there is a higher chance that your mark will be lowered then going up...sorry, I know that's not much help but I doubt you can do anything but retake???

    oh thats a shame. If i re-take wont that mean that i wont be able to send off my ucas application early? - was hoping to send it by october

    If you retake, you won't get the results till mid-March, whereas the UCAS deadline is Jan 15th; it doesn't matter when you send it off, though you might have to put that module down as "Pending".
