You will hear within 15 days. Most likely not tomorrow. If you're going this to try and improve a grade to meet offer requirements, your university will hold the offer until 31st Aug

It's extremely rare verging on impossible that it would go up two grades, one maybe but not two.

It definitely can, that's quite far to go up. Last year only 20% of remarks resulted in a grade increase. What subject is this for?

Okay, subjects with such broad marking criteria may have more of a chance of going up than more objectively marked subjects, but two grades is a lot to go up by.

I have some data for you:

Last year the average resolution time for a priority remark for Edexcel was three days. So if they can repeat that service and you unfortunately don't make the grades still then you will have time to go through clearing and choose another course if you wanted. Only 11.64% of remarks resulted in a grade change, so two grades is highly unlikely, but hopefully the knowledge that clearing is still an option is reassuring for you.

Okay. I understand that investment banking (I'm assuming that's what 'ib' is?) is competitive, but it's not the end of the world if you can't get your geography grade up. Your degree and work experience will be much more important at that stage.

On a related note, there is no reason to apply for a priority remark in that case, and since you are quite unlikely to increase your grade as high as you'd like, I'd recommend going for a regular remark (~£40) as it will be cheaper than a priority remark (~£50). You will only get your money back if your grade goes up.

3 years ago, one of my papers went from a D to an A with a re-mark, it was mis marked by about 30 marks so it is possible.
