    if you're on your course, don't get it remarked. there's no point. it would just be for self satisfaction, and you don't need it.

    Im pissed off with OCR ...still! (and probably will be for a very long time)


    The danger with remarking is you can go down, aswell as up, although that probably wont make any difference to you, as it is the grade your interested in, not the actual mark. I think its definately worth it, and as youre A2 you can get speedy speedy remarking which only takes a few days! ...Bargain

    A-Levels are also important for graduate jobs so even if you have got onto your course, it's worth getting them remarked! You have nothing to lose really.

    I thought you meant that you got 1/300, was getting worried then! Um, anyway, get it remarked, 1 mark is easy to gain.

    Unless youre dropping maths I wouldnt bother getting it remarked- its not the grade that matters, it the score!

    It's not their fault you were 1 mark away supposing they marked it correctly, there has to be a grade which is one out of the next one somewhere, they can't just round up all the time.

    Yeah a lot of companies do look at a level scores and i know some financial companies say that you must have x number of ucas points since it is difficult for them to compare degree classes at different unis.

    I thought the school was supposed to pay for it? Then they get the money back if it does go up a grade.

    Come on guys, it's not just a case of 'rounding up'. When the examiner marks your script they won't know what UMS score you will get and thus cannot tell what grade you have achieved.
