    Don't bother with re-mark, though. You made the necessary grades and that's good enough. Re-mark means it can go down as well as up, you know?

    I mean if it's on the boundary between the current grade and a higher grade, there's no loss if it does go down.

    I do have enough UMS banked that it would never really go down below an A grade. I actually got 90% of the overall UMS, but unfortunately a bad exam in A2 meant my specific A2 marks weren't 90%. But yeah I may not go for the remark - probably just the fact that this is the subject i'm doing at Cambridge so it's more personal

    Re-mark isn't free.
    Besides, a degree of Cambridge in a few years time in his hand, nobody will care (nor will it your future prospect) whether you had A*AA or AA*A when you were a teenager.....

    See my post above.
    It's up to you, and some successful applicants think of the same thing every year, but it's really not worth it.
    It may not feel like it now but you'll realise A-level result is not a significant thing in a big picture.

    But very well done, all the same.

    My track hasn't updated, is just the same as before, does this mean I've been pooled?

    You likely need to send your raw marks/UMS marks to your college.
