    After consistently getting A's and A* throughout the year in AQA psychology I was shocked to find out that I got a C overall in my exams. I felt that they went very well, I looked at unofficial mark schemes and I got close to or even exactly what was said.

    Now I have gone through the process of getting remarks. Have there been any experiences of people going from a C to an A/A* grade after a remark.

    Yeah. You are high enough into a B that you wont somehow drop to a C. Worth the risk in my opinion, but at the end of the day it is your call

    I have already payed and handed in the remark papers to my school so I HOPE it all works out. I'm just lucky that my uni only wanted a B...but literally had a shock 😅x

    I had 146 and have just received my remark today. I sent in paper one and my overall score went up to 148 and therefore an A. It's definitely worth sending in biology, best of luck.

    I got a politics paper remarked. I initially had 82/100 and needed 88/100 for an overall A*. Got it back today and got 88/100 - so an A* overall!

    How did you decide which paper to remark? That's great news and well done on the A!
