    I've just sat GCSE Maths for the 3rd time in November and i got my results and I got 63 marks and I got a D. My friend got a C and she got 64 marks so I was 1 mark off from passing. When I took it in the summer I failed by 1 mark too but I missed the deadline to get it re-marked. Should I risk it and pay for it to get re-marked in case they miscounted or just accept it and try again in June? It's the only GCSE I didn't pass and it's so frustrating! Has anyone else ever had it re-marked and they awarded you more marks?

    I PERSONALLY would say get it re-marked as it's ONE mark you're talking about and you MAY get it due to your working out etc However, it could go down as well...

    Good Luck!

    It's recommended that you don't get it remarked because it's unlikely that your mark will go up & you're more likely to lose marks in maths.
    This girl at my school was in the same situation as you and got it remarked, but it stayed the same.

    You can try. Nothing to lose as if you get less marks it is still a fail. With Maths it is easuer to mark prcisely so you are looking for an error.

    GCSE maths remarks are rarely successful BUT sometimes they are.

    You already have a D so nothing to lose except your (parents) money.
