    Hey there,
    I got some of my GCSE results today (as I'm in Northern Ireland). I got an A in ICT, which is GREAT, but I found out that I am, AT MOST, 3 marks away from an A* in it.. I could even just be 1 mark away from it!
    Do you think I should get a re-mark? Computing is what I want to do a B-Tech in, so I think it would look great if I got the A* in GCSE ICT.
    What do you think the chances of my grade going up are if I got a re-mark?

    Thanks in advance,
    Jon.

    Yes! Get a remark. You've got that grade for life so the better it sounds, the more chances you have of impressing future employers/universities.

    Chances are very high! Something like 98% of all remarks go up.

    I don't think you should get it remark partly due to the fact that A* and A are really good. When you apply to universities, it won't make a difference to them whether it is an A or A*. So don't get it remark. It will be a waste of time and human resources.
