I got an A in OCR english language.
the unit marks are as follows:

Non fiction media and information - a* (81/90)
Different cultures, analysis, argument - a (78/90)
Coursework - a (53/60)
Speaking and listening coursework - a* (56/60)

Do you think it would be worth remarking the different cultures paper to hopefully get an a*? does anyone know the grade boundaries so i can see how far away I am? thanks

268/300 = 89.3% (A)

270/300 = 90% (A*)

Definitely worth going for it, you were only 2 marks off mate. (*Feels sorry for you lol*)

Also, you were only 1 mark off A* in the language coursework!!!

Close one, definitely get it remarked!!! English is a very subjective paper, all essay papers are... a remark and you stand a very good chance of going up a grade, I think!

Good Luck!

180/200 was A* in literature!

I don't think that's worth a re-mark, you could go down a grade lol.

Not worth the risk!
